THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS’ FURTHER RECEIVES A GRAMMY® NOMINATION FOR BEST ELECTRONIC/DANCE ALBUM
EMI Music’s Astralwerks Records is proud to announce a Grammy® nomination for Best Electronic/Dance album for The Chemical Brothers’ seventh studio album, Further.
One of the most successful electronic/dance acts ever, The Chemical Brothers have blazed trails by earning a gold record, 4 Grammys, five consecutive #1 records in the UK, and have sold 10 million records worldwide. Further is an eight track masterpiece of modern psychedelia effortlessly fusing freeform analogue wig-outs to juggernaut dancefloor dynamics. The record sees Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons explore the boundless possibilities of their sound. Further’s eight tracks are accompanied by corresponding visuals made exclusively for this release (and subsequent live shows). It’s the band’s first proper partnership with their long-time visuals collaborators Adam Smith and Marcus Lyall.
Nearly three years on from the release of their GRAMMY® Award winning and fifth consecutive UK Number 1 album We Are The Night, Further is the culmination of nearly two decades of psychedelic exploration, an immersive collection that finds The Chemical Brothers at their least-restrained and most-melodic best.
The Chemical Brothers were recently honored to receive the Q Magazine (UK) Hero Award at the Q Awards 2010 and are confirmed to headline the Ultra Music Festival in Bicentennial Park, Miami, FL on March 27th, 2011.
The band have previously won three Grammy awards, with “Galvanize” (Best Dance Recording) and Push The Button (Best Electronic/ Dance Album) winning in 2006, and We Are The Night also winning Best Electronic/Dance Album in 2008.
“The Chemical Brothers’ new album is everything at once: swirling, dizzying, disorientating and hypnotizing….The Chemical Brothers have perfected a soft fusion of sound that delights and enraptures.” – Filter Magazine
“Beloved British rave stalwarts rock the melancholy with indecipherable vocals and an awesomely squishy, spangled, descending-tone sample that hits your gut like cresting a roller coaster.” Review of “Swoon” – Rolling Stone
