The Killjoy Club (group)
The Killjoy Club, is an American hip hop supergroup on Psychopathic Records composed of the hip hop duo Insane Clown Posse and hip hop group Da Mafia 6ix. Formed in early 2014 but was announced at the 15th Annual Gathering Of The Juggalos during the Insane Clown Posse's seminar on July 26th, 2014. It was then announced that they have composed a group with Da Mafia 6ix called "The Killjoy Club", and will be releasing their debut album entitled "Reindeer Games" on September 2, 2014.
On February 6th 2014 in an exclusive one hour interview with Insane Clown Posse and Faygoluvers.net, it was hinted by Violent J that he had an idea to do a collaboration album with some of the artists that he and partner Shaggy 2 Dope would like to work with. A month passed with nothing else said about the project. Until a March 30th, 2014 interview with DJ Paul of Da Mafia 6ix while on the Triple 6 Sinners Tour conducted by Dark Side Newz, when asked if he planned on working on anything new with Insane Clown Posse he responded, "Yeah we’re gonna do an album with ICP, Mafia 6ix and ICP." Even though Psychopathic Records and Insane Clown Posse had not yet confirmed it.
On April, 13th 2014 another interview was conducted with DJ Paul by HipHopTerrorDome.com. When asked, what was next for him and Da Mafia 6ix after "The Sinners Tour" and the release of their new album? He responded, " We're dropping an album in August with Insane Clown Posse. Then we're supposed to start the tour around August as well as promote the album." On May 9th, 2014 after a series of tweets via Twitter posted by ICP stated that they plan on releasing a brand new "mystery album" for August. Even though it had already been rumored it was a collaboration album with the duo and Da Mafia 6ix. Ten days later On May 19th the Insane Clown Posse, DJ Paul and Koopsta Knicca posted pictures via Instagram of both groups in the studio working together.
After two months of speculation it was finally announced at the 15th Annual Gathering Of The Juggalos by the Insane Clown Posse during the group's seminar, that they in fact are putting out an album with Da Mafia 6ix under the name "The Killjoy Club" and is in fact a new supergroup on Psychopathic Records. Their debut album entitled Reindeer Games is scheduled to be released on September 2nd, 2014 and it was also announced by ICP that they would be going on tour starting September 18th, 2014 with Madchild, Da Mafia 6ix, Jelly Roll, Mushroomhead, and more with a 45 city tour schedule possibly called "Shockfest" to promote the album, and will conclude October 31, 2014.
A single was released on a free CD handed out at the seminar called "Panic Mode" featuring Young Wicked aka Otis of Axe Murder Boyz from the upcoming debut Reindeer Games on a free Psychopathic sampler disc titled "Psyr17".
