Wu-Tang Clan members Method Man, Raekwon, and Ghostface Killah have revealed the artwork and tracklist for their upcoming new album, The Wu-Massacre, now slated to drop March 30, Nah Right reports. The album cover art is in the style of a comic book, complete with issue number and barcode, and shows off the three rappers as animated characters.
The only thing missing on the cover is a proper name for the trio, who are still on the lookout for a moniker. The trio set up a contest via the Def Jam website last month asking for fan suggestions, promising the winner a mention in The Wu-Massacre‘s liner notes.
In the meantime, the guys aren’t letting the lack of a name stop them — they released the album’s first single, “Our Dreams,” on iTunes and Amazon earlier this week. The album itself, however, has been hit by several delays since the project was announced last summer, with Raekwon recently tweeting that The Wu-Massacre has been pushed back yet again to March 30.

The Wu-Massacre arrives after a busy and successful year for the trio. Raekwon dropped the SPIN-approved Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II and celebrated with an album-release party in New York, featuring famed rhyme-sayers like Diddy, Ice-T, Q-Tip, and Redman. Check out photos from the event here.
Ghostface, meanwhile, released Ghostdini: Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City, and Method Man teamed with Redman to drop Blackout! 2, their first collaboration is over a decade.
