It’s been two years since bassist Stephen Bruner, aka Thundercat, released his debut album, The Golden Age Of Apocalypse. But he is back, and yet again, he has experimental master Flying Lotus behind him. The new album, titled Apocalypse, was co-produced by the L.A. beatmaker, and judging from the single “Heartbreaks And Setbacks,” streaming below, we are in for quite a treat.
 
The album is due out July 9 via Brainfeeder, and will “pull the veil back and reveal the simple truths of the cycle of life, for all its beauty and destruction,” according to their press release. The pair will also be touring together this summer. Check out the complete tour dates and tracklist from Apocalypse below.
