The Mouse and The Mask turned out to be an amazing experience for them and for us,” stated Jason DeMarco, head of music for Adult Swim and executive producer of the highly acclaimed DANGERDOOM project. “As soon as the project was finished, we knew we wanted to continue working together. This time, we’ve decided to make new music available free for download from AdultSwim.com, which we thought was fitting for two artists who are legendary for Internet leaks. What’s better than new DANGERDOOM? FREE new DANGERDOOM. The adventure continues.”
