Gym Class Heroes Roll Out “The Quilt”


Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen recording group Gym Class Heroes has announced the upcoming release of their eagerly anticipated third album, “THE QUILT.” The collection – which follows 2006’s RIAA gold-certified breakthrough, “AS CRUEL AS SCHOOL CHILDREN” – arrives in stores and at online retailers on September 9th.

“THE QUILT” will be preceded by the album’s first single, “Cookie Jar.” Produced by The-Dream (Rihanna, Usher, Chris Brown), the track will be available for digital purchase on July 8th. Gym Class Heroes recently wrapped production on a companion video for “Cookie Jar” with director Dale “Rage” Resteghini (Jim Jones, Lil’ Wayne). The clip will premiere later this summer.

For their new album, Gym Class Heroes teamed up with a number of extraordinary collaborators. In addition to The-Dream, producers include Cool & Dre (Yung Joc, Young Jeezy, The Game) and the Geneva, NY-based band’s longtime friend and collaborator, Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy. What’s more, “THE QUILT” features special guest contributions from the one-and-only Busta Rhymes, UK soul sensation Estelle, and the legendary Daryl Hall.

Gym Class Heroes will spend their summer busting out the new material as headliners on the just-underway Vans Warped Tour (see attached itinerary). In addition, the band will also join fellow Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen recording groups The Academy Is…, Cobra Starship, and Four Year Strong for summer shows in New Orleans , Montana , and Oregon .
