Nearly three years on from the release of their Grammy Award winning and fifth consecutive U.K. Number 1 album We Are The Night, Further sees Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons explore the boundless possibilities of
their sound. Taking a trip through four decades of electronic noise, Tom & Ed have taken the template set up with
their occasional Electronic Battle Weapon releases and allowed them to mutate gloriously into an entire
album. Voice samples and snatches of vocals are woven through tracks to create a record that ebbs and flows like
one of the band's legendary live sets. Here, West Coast power pop harmonies sit beside German Motorik rhythms
while My Bloody Valentine-esque sonic manipulations plane across the top of early house bass lines. 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.
As well as an eight-track album, Further is the band's first proper partnership with long-time visuals
collaborators Adam Smith and Marcus Lyall. Now a respected TV and film director, Adam – aka Flat Nose George -
has been responsible for creating the visual backdrop for every Chemical Brothers gig since their live debut in 1994.
Visuals for Further have been created to correspond with each track on the album and have been planned
during the recording of the record.
The band will play four shows at London's Roundhouse in May. These will be the first opportunities for fans to see
the band play the album with Smith and Lyall's new films in sequence and in their entirety. The band will also play
select festivals in Europe including Sonar Festival in Barcelona before coming to the U.S. for summer dates including
gigs at the Hollywood Bowl on August 29 and Electric Zoo at Randall's Island in New York City on September 4.
