Cover stars of June's issue of DJ Mag, Hot Chip are riding high on the initial success of new album 'In Our Heads' (out now on Domino), receiving early summer support from all and sundried/sundry via a succession of high ranking reviews. Check out our own score in the July issue of DJ Mag, out 27th June.
After last weekend's appearance at Lovebox, they're heading further down the festival trail with appearances at Camp Bestival, Electric Picnic and Bestival. If you're not able to shell out full-wack for some grassy fun though, fret not, as they start a UK tour on Monday 8th October in Norwich, traversing the country before finishing on Friday 19th October at O2 Brixton Academy. Supported alternately by Disclosure and Django Django, it's your opportunity to catch new tracks such as first single 'Night And Day', 'Flutes' and 'Ends of the Earth' alongside old favourites.
Check the Peter Serafinowicz-directed video for 'Night And Day', which follows his work on 'I Feel Better' from previous album 'One Life Stand'. Suffice to say, it features appearances from Terence Stamp, Reggie Watts, Lara Stone and (briefly) Hot Chip, plus more intergalactic nuttiness...
