Sixth album from the Chems features guest spots from Klaxons and Fatlip from The Pharcyde. ‘We are the Night’ arrives in June.
Recorded in a bomb proof bunker in South London, the album promises to “evoke the dancefloors of Manchester and Minneapolis in the early eighties and London of 2007.”
As with previous albums, ‘We are...’ features guest vocalists and players, including nu-ravers Klaxons on ‘All Nights Reserved’, singer-songwriter Willy Mason on ‘Battle Scars’ and rock band Midlake on ‘The Pills Won’t Help Now’. Ali Love guests on the first single from the album ‘Do It Again’, due to hit shelves on June 4th.
‘We are the Night’ follows on from 2005’s ‘Push the Button’ which spawned the hit single ‘Galvanize’.
