New Wu-Tang Clan: Twenty years later, Wu-Tang Clan will bring the ruckus in another album, nearly six years after 2007‘s “8 Diagrams.”

All eight members will show up on the album, titled “A Better Tomorrow” that will come out in July, reported Billboard magazine. According to Hiphop-N-More, the “A Better Tomorrow” title is named after the song of the same name on the “Wu-Tang Forever” LP.

The Clan will also launch a tour to promote the album while celebrating the 20th anniversary of “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers),” released in 1993 and widely considered one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time. The tour starts on April 14 at Coachella.

RZA, whose real name is Robert Diggs, told the New York Times: “There’s one last job Wu-Tang Clan must do. And we need to, one more time, completely, efficiently, properly, professionally represent our brand. One more time. But this time, showing up on time for press and for concerts and studio. Do it one more time, perfect.”

He elaborated on the anniversary.

“I already got some heat put together for the boys,” he said, according to MTV. “This is our 20th anniversary, so it’s not only for us, I think it’s especially for the hip-hop fans out there and for the people that supported the culture and what we do. It’s not a lot of us that can say ’20 years.’

“I think that Wu-Tang can do one more album to close that book, just for the fun of it, not even for nothing else but fun. Just do it to do it,” he added.
