BROCKHAMPTON is an alternative hip hop boyband founded by musician and filmmaker, Kevin Abstract. He gathered 12 friends from high school and from the internet forum KanyeToThe, and they called themselves BROCKHAMPTON. They moved into a house in South Central Texas to create all day long and record their mixtape, “All-American Trash.” What really captured people’s attention, however, was their debut album, “SATURATION,” released early June. Abstract has support from Tyler the Creator of Odd Future and popular TV channel VICELAND.

Late August, BROCKHAMPTON released their sophomore album, “SATURATION II.” The same day, Abstract announced on Twitter that “SATURATION” would be a trilogy. Fans are hungry for the group’s last installment, which is expected to drop before the end of 2017.
