In 2015, Chicago’s hip hop duo The Cool Kids dropped a bomb on their loyal fanbase: Their highly anticipated Shark Week album was never going to drop. Why? Because The Cool Kids were “never coming back.“
But apparently, they’ve had a change of heart.
Chuck Inglish, one half of the duo, went on Twitter Wednesday night to announce he and Sir Michael Rocks would reunite under The Cool Kids moniker—and that this time, it’s for real. The Subvert Agency has also confirmed the news.
Though Chuck and Rocks have been working as solo artists over the last few years, the two decided to come back together after the slew of tragic events that took place this month. And they said they hope new music will help alleviate some of the pain.
Chuck said the duo will begin working on music once his new album releases. This should be exciting news for fans, as The Cool Kids haven’t dropped an album since 2011’s When Fish Ride Bicycles.
