Reacting to past troubles with former labels, the artists initially skipped the traditional distribution route for their music and released some of their first tracks by leaking them on the internet. Among the tracks distributed in this fashion was "Move On," which recounts the group's backstory through music. In the summer of 2009, Slaughterhouse recorded and released its self-titled debut on E! Music. Featuring "The One," "Microphone," and "Woodstock Hood Hop" (which didn't make the final cut due to sample clearance issues), the album sold 18,000 copies in its first week and has met with critical acclaim. AllMusic.com called the album "tough, cold, and relentless," featuring the veteran rappers "[trading] lines with old-school open mic hunger." Slaughterhouse released an eponymous EP in February of 2011, featuring four new tracks and two remixes of previous releases. After existing independent of a major label for several years, the outfit also signed to Eminem's powerhouse imprint Shady Records in January 2011. According to Budden, the group had been aiming to sign to the label since its inception. "Very early on, the four of us agreed that Shady would be the best place for the group to be," he said, "before our first album was finished." Their full-length label debut Welcome to: Our House was released in June 2012, featuring the hit singles "Hammer Dance" and "My Life" with Cee Lo Green. - See more at: http://highlineballroom.com/show/2013/07/16/slaughterhouse/#sthash.vZ0pb4Xw.dpuf http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=141122 Highline Ballroom true DD/MM/YYYY
