Iridescence has gone through more drama than most studio releases. The group originally announced that their fourth album would be called Team Effort, but they later retracted the statement and said that it would be called Puppy instead.
The group released several teasers during the Puppy sessions, with leaked tracks including “Ready for War” and “Let’s Get Married.” Check them out, along with several others, by clicking the link below.
Puppy was delayed following allegations of sexual misconduct against founding member Ameer Vann. Vann admitted to being mentally and verbally abusive, but he denied allegations of sexual abuse.
“In response to the claims of emotional and sexual abuse,” he wrote. “Although my behavior has been selfish, childish, and unkind, I have never criminally harmed anyone or disrespected their boundaries. I have never had relations with a minor or violated anybody’s consent.”
Brockhampton announced that Vann would be leaving the group on May 27. “We want to sincerely apologize to the victims affected by Ameer’s actions,” they wrote in an official statement. “We were lied to, and we’re sorry for not speaking up sooner.” Puppy was shelved soon afterwards, and they announced that the new album would be called Iridescence.
The group released the official artwork and tracklist for the album on September 13. Check it out below.
