Slightly Stoopid is giving fans a taste of their upcoming new album today, as the band debuts the title track to Top of the World beginning at 10 am PDT on as well as the band’s Facebook, Twitter and other social networks.  “Top of the World” is indicative of the band’s signature mash-up of eclectic grooves – a track threaded with a hypnotic guitar line, hip-hop beat and undeniable vocal hooks. Their highly-anticipated seventh studio album, which features several high-profile collaborations, will be released on August 14 on their own label Stoopid Records.  The group’s previous Stoopid Records releases have combined for sales of nearly one million copies.

The seven-piece band continues to explore a variety of styles on Top of the World, with help from some of their biggest influences and heroes including: reggae legends Barrington Levy and Don Carlos of Black Uhuru; “unofficial 8th member” Karl Denson of Greyboy Allstars; longtime band friend and touring partner G. Love; Fishbone frontman Angelo Moore; ex-Jurassic Five emcee extraordinaire Chali 2na; Dumpstaphunk’s Ian Neville; and hit-making singer/songwriter Angela Hunte.
Since forming in 1995, Slightly Stoopid has toured virtually non-stop, and this summer is no different.  Slightly Stoopid has joined forces with 311 for the party of the summer, as the two bands recently launched Unity Tour 2012.  This installment of the annual trek is hitting amphitheaters nationwide through September 5 (click for itinerary).
