Boy band BROCKHAMPTON has just released a brand-new single and announced a new album in an appearance on Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. This is the first appearance for the band since they canceled their tour earlier this year and founding member Ameer Vann left the band. The song was titled "Tonya."
The performance of "Tonya" was done on a patch of astroturf with a video showing an ocean behind them, starting out as a ballad before kicking into the MCs trading verses. The song also included a reference to the award-winning biopic I, Tonya.
BROCKHAMPTON originally formed in San Marcos, Texas, but moved to California and rebranded themselves in 2014. Since that time, they released a mixtape titled All-American Trash and three studio albums, titled Saturation I, Saturation II and Saturation III. They also released a Saturation Boxset in 2017.
However, after the band signed with RCA Records, and they hinted at a new album called Puppy, sexual misconduct allegations were filed against Ameer Veen. The founding member said that he was verbally and mentally abusive but never sexually abusive, but he left the band anyway in May. BROCKHAMPTON canceled their remaining tour dates and moved on.
The appearance on Fallon's talk show was their first appearance since Veen left the band and the new album no longer has the title Puppy. Instead, BROCKHAMPTON will release The Best Years of Our Lives
