On Thursday (September 14), the trio revealed that they are gearing up to release Faith is a Rock next week on September 22. Whereas Alc has enjoyed an illustrious career that spans decades and boasts a deep catalog of features across generations, the two MCs on his next record are still on the rise.
The album follows the One More EP that The Alchemist, Wiki and MIKE dropped last year. Made up of only three cuts, the project was released in conjunction with Dutch streetwear brand Patta’s collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger.

Meanwhile, The Alchemist and Earl Sweatshirt recently announced that they are set to take their joint album Voir Dire on the road this winter.
The 11-date U.S. trek kicks off on November 6 in Seattle, Washington and wraps up on November 27 in Detroit, Michigan, with stops in cities such as San Francisco, Houston, Atlanta, Philadelphia and New York along the way.
Joining them on the run will be Black Noi$e and MIKE, who was also the only guest artist on their album.
In late August, Earl and Uncle Al released Voir Dire, but not in the most accessible manner. Rather than putting it on the usual streaming platforms, the rapper-producer duo dropped their long-awaited LP via Gala Music.
The 11-track offering, described as a “digital collectable,” is available to stream for free after entering an email address, with each song also available as an NFT (non-fungible token).
