While February saw ArtOfficial join forces with fellow Panhandle State crews Miami Beat Wave and ¡MAYDAY! to drop the Neighbors LP, it’s been a year and change since last they stepped into the Booth with a feature of their own. All that collaborative work clearly kept them in top form, though; single numero uno off the ensemble’s next full-length is one of the most exhilarating jams we’ve heard from them to date. On Laser Show, Armando Lopez‘s propulsive drums, Ralf Valencia‘s winding bassline and Keith Cooper‘s screaming sax accompany emcees Newsense and Logics as they celebrate their return to the game in hyperkinetic verses. Fans will be able to find Laser Show and much more on ArtOfficial’s next album, Knives, scheduled for independent release on Tuesday, July 15.
Update: We have added the Daniel Daigle and Carlos De Verona-crafted visuals for ArtOfficial’s Laser Show single.

Though ArtOfficial hasn't released a solo project since 2011's Booth-acclaimed Vitamins & Minerals, the Florida live-band ensemble has stayed sharp by working with ¡MAYDAY! and Miami Beat Wave on this year's Neighbors tape....
