This spring, two of the most successful independent record labels come together to wreak havoc on the road once again. The 3rd annual “Strange Noize Tour” brings together two powerhouse labels – Strange Music and Suburban Noize – for a tour like no other. With artists representing both labels hitting the stage, fans are sure to see one of the most impactful and diverse Hip Hop shows around.

Co-headlining this chapter of the “Strange Noize Tour” saga will be none other than Sub Noize’s Johnny Richter of the Kottonmouth Kings, along with Strange Music’s resident genius, Krizz Kaliko. Richter, a key member of the Kings, has been hitting the road nonstop – most recently supporting the Kings’ album Long Live The Kings and his solo release, Laughing, and along the way developing an instantly recognizable swagger and style that’s all his own. Fans know Krizz Kaliko thru his constant touring with Tech N9ne, as well as thru his game-changing Strange Music albums, his latest being Shock Treatment. Krizz’s stage presence is undeniable and his live show is an energetic force unto itself.

Joining Krizz and Richter will be Saigon and Potluck from Suburban Noize, along with Kutt Calhoun from Strange Music. Saigon, one of Brooklyn’s finest, recently signed with Suburban Noize , adding a gritty East Coast element to the label’s already well-rounded roster with his album The Greatest Story Never Told . Potluck are following a trail blazed by the Kings as they rep Humboldt County from coast to coast – their upcoming May release “Rhymes And Resin” . The Kansas City Chief, Kutt Calhoun, brings his Raw And Un-Kutt brand of catchy, street-smart Hip Hop to the tour. Arizona local J Hornay rounds out the lineup with his self-described “jokester” style of rap.

The 2011 “Strange Noize Tour” combines two of the most notable independent record labels for a tour that will continue to change the expectations of what Hip Hop can be.
