Wu-Tang Clan named its second album Forever.

Now, 20-years into its career, the celebrated rap group remains robust, with a new album, a Coachella appearance and international concerts on the horizon.

RZA, Ghostface Killah, Method Man, GZA, Raekwon, Inspectah Deck, U-God and Masta Killa are preparing for the release of its sixth album, A Better Tomorrow.

The LP is scheduled for a July release, 20 years after its landmark debut album, Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), arrived in stores.

A Better Tomorrow is also the name of a song on Forever.

The Wu-Tang Clan is slated to appear at Manchester’s O2 Apollo in the UK July 25 and Brixton’s O2 Academy the next day.

Prior to the release of A Better Tomorrow, Wu-Tang Clan will appear April 12-14 at Coachella.

Raekwon began discussing the possibility of a sixth Wu-Tang Clan album in 2011 and the group announced on its Facebook page in January that its new collection was being recorded.

The Wu-Tang Clan will be embarking upon its 20-year celebration without Ol’ Dirty Bastard, the group’s most eccentric member.

ODB, as he was also known, died of an accidental drug overdose in 2004.
