News: Knock, Knock: Slaughterhouse Finally Open The Door To "Our House"

Shady Records' Slaughterhouse are finally ready to let fans hear their long-awaited sophomore album Welcome to: Our House, confirming the LP is nearly ready to hit store shelves.
If all goes accordingly, fans can get their hands on the new album within a month.
Slaughterhouse are putting the finishing touches on their humble abode. Welcome to: Our House, Slaughterhouse's major-label debut on Shady Records, is scheduled for a June 12 release, and Eminem is just putting the finishing touches on the much-anticipated LP. "The album is done. In terms of vocal recording, we're done. Marshall is still in the process of mixing, we still got a couple of records that we're missing," Royce da 5'9" told MTV News on May 9 from the set of their "My Life" video. "We're on pace for June, worst-case scenario, we're looking at July, but it's definitely coming, 100 percent. (MTV)
Despite the perceived good news, Slaughterhouse member Joe Budden recently said he hoped the LP's release date gets delayed.
"I'm hoping it gets pushed back to July," Budden said. "I feel like when it's your major label debut, more time, in this instance we're only talking about two and a half weeks, that is important to me. The more time the better. It's more time to prepare. ... [The album's] really good. It sounds big, large. If you listen to 'My Life,' that sounds grand. The music, the feel, that is the theme to me -- it's big. It's triumphant. It's introspective. It's really good and it flows well." ("Jenny Boom Boom")
Initial plans had the long-awaited group effort dropping this week.
Originally, hip-hop super-group Slaughterhouse intended on dropping their sophomore album, Welcome to: Our House, on May 15. But for whatever reason -- perhaps to give lead single "Hammer Dance" the right push -- they're now set to release it on June 12. The funny thing about this announcement is that it came at the tail end of a recent tour video that came out earlier this week. Just goes to show we should probably all be paying more attention to the lil' details. (Prefix Mag)
Recently, Slaughterhouse's Joell Ortiz said the absence of time restrictions helped enhance the project's quality.
The additional time gave Slaughterhouse a chance to perfect their writing chops. "We didn't have a time limit for this album," Ortiz explains. "On E1 we had a deadline to meet, and that's why we recorded the debut album in six days. This was more, 'You guys fly to Detroit, sit with producers, really get in there and work on a record and creatively come up with concepts.' That took deadlines off of our minds and let us be artists." As a result, Ortiz feels this album is far more creative than their debut. "This is our chance to display how ill songwriters and MCs we are on a different level." (Rolling Stone)
