THE COOL KIDS ANNOUNCE FINAL RELEASE DATE OF LONG AWAITED DEBUT EP CHOCOLATE INDUSTRIES TO RELEASE THE BAKE SALE EP ON iTUNES 5/20, PHYSICAL RELEASE ON 6/10

Chicago-based hip-hop duo The Cool Kids are set to release their debut EP on Chocolate Industries on May 20th exclusively on iTunes, and June 10th on CD and other digital outlets. Heralded by Rolling Stone and many others as an artist to watch in 2008, The Cool Kids have recently toured Europe and Australia as well as selling out shows nationwide. This spring and summer finds them doing spot dates in America, hitting Europe again June 14-July 14, rocking Lollapalooza and appearing on many of the dates on the Rock the Bells tour.

“In everything they do, from music to style, The Cool Kids are meticulous. They’ve honed a refreshing signature sound, equal parts throwback formalism and contemporary swagger-the ease of Tribe, the texture of Gang Starr, in the shadow of Pharrell” -VIBE MAGAZINE

“Chicago’s next great hip-hop duo.” -ROLLINGSTONE.COM

“One of the more promising new groups to emerge in recent years.” -LOS ANGELES TIMES

“Their slow-rolling sound updates vintage Beastie Boys and EPMD with trunk-crumpling beats more minimal than a Mark Rothko painting.” – SPIN MAGAZINE
