      The Roots Take Game Theory on Tour

      Hip-hop's premier jam band, The Roots, have been studying up. Or
      possibly just watching A Beautiful Mind. Either way, the group will
      release Game Theory, their Def Jam debut, on August 29. If the cover
      art and ?uestlove's comments in interviews are any indication, it
      figures to be their darkest record yet. The group brought Malik B back
      into the fold for Game Theory, which also features contributions from
      Peedi Peedi and former Roots member and human beatboxer/rapper Rahzel.

      And like the faithful live performers they are, the Roots have
      scheduled a positively massive tour in support of their dark Def Jam
      debut. Supporting them will be Talib Kweli and the Pharcyde, and don't
      blink or you'll miss that one-off date with Common.
