CHROMEO ANNOUNCES ‘WHEN THE NIGHT FALLS’ NEW TOUR DATES AND REMIX EP

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on July 8, 2011

MAYER HAWTHORNE TO SUPPORT, BREAKBOT ADDED ON SELECT DATES

 

‘WHEN THE NIGHT FALLS’ FEATURING SOLANGE KNOWLES GETS THE REMIX TREATMENT FROM HERCULES & LOVE AFFAIR, BREAKBOT, LIFELIKE AND A COVER VERSION FROM MAYER HAWTHORNE

Chromeo, the electrofunk duo credited for some of the decade’s most addicting pop songs and memorable live performances, is announcing a string of 34 new Fall tour dates, aptly titled the ‘Night Falls‘ tour, in addition to their many upcoming festival appearances throughout the globe this year.  This seven week journey across North America will be the biggest, most extensive tour in the band’s history.  Joining the twosome on the road is soulful crooner Mayer Hawthorne, the Stones Throw alum now signed to Universal, and, on selected dates, Ed Banger’s very own funkateer Breakbot.  Audiences should expect a spectacle as Chromeo’s performances are known for their trademark hot-legged keyboard stands, elaborate light show and sultry Robert Palmer-esque back-up singers.  More recently fans have been treated to guest appearances by the likes of A-Trak and Ezra Koenig ofVampire Weekend to go along with the band’s seriously fancy footwork.  Ticket sales begin July 6th for pre-sale and open July 8th for the general public.  As all of Chromeo’s past tours have, this one is likely to sell out quickly.

 

Chromeo members Dave 1 and P-Thugg hit new heights with the release of the critically acclaimed Business Causal this past year, appearing on Late Night with David Letterman and Conan O’Brien.  Their next official single, “When The Nights Falls” featuring Solange Knowles, is being released as a remix EP on July 26th through Big Beat/Atlantic Records.  The single package features remixes by Hercules & Love AffairLifelikeBreakbot and a cover version by Mayer Hawthorne.  Check out the Breakbot remix below for a preview of what to expect and scroll down for the full list of tour dates.
