Immortal Technique Embarks on New Tour After Return From Afghanistan

Immortal Technique kicks off a new tour starting at New York City's legendary B.B. King on April 14th. This initial show is in conjunction with "Rock to Save Darfur," and will then begin his brief US tour in New Mexico, including an appearance at the Gathering of Nations on April 24th. Fellow Rebel Arms members will accompany Immortal Technique, with expected dates in New Mexico, California, Colorado, Texas, Vermont, Massachusetts, Maine and Minneapolis.

Immortal Technique returns from a two-week expedition in Afghanistan, where he assisted with the final construction of the Amin Institute, an orphanage, school and medical facility. He made this promised prior to his 2008 album release of, "The 3rd World", and called this The Green Light Project. In conjunction with Omied International, Immortal Technique acquired the property of the institute, food, clothing, appliances, beds for the children, medical supplies and the infrastructure of the school by raising funds at benefit concerts and his very own personal monetary donation. His travels was filmed and documented by long-time friend, C. Stuart, for a movie based on Immortal Technique's revolutionary work. A more detailed account of his experience will be featured in an upcoming issue of The Source Magazine.

"You know, there are always cynics who cannot see anything but their own inability to succeed in anything besides a 'cleverly written' denigration of anyone else's hard work while being unable to produce any example of their own. But if you forget your own ego for a minute, this is the proof that ordinary people like us, who work through problems and fight through set backs can succeed. And not only that, we can succeed anywhere. I say again, WE can succeed." – Immortal Technique

The release of "The 3rd World" debuted in the Billboard charts and has sold over 60 thousand units to date through Viper Records/Koch. This third independent full-length release features DJ Green Lantern, Pharoahe Monch, Ras Kass, Chino XL, SouthPaw, Crooked I, Buckwild, Scram Jones and more. With famed reviews by XXL Magazine, The Source, XLR8R, his esteemed fans and publications across the globe, Immortal Technique has proven the international acclaim of his music and message.
