News - Chase & Status - April / May UK Tour

View The Article

On 28th April, Chase & Status embark on their biggest live tour to date with 15 shows over April and May 2010. The tour will coincide with the May release of their first single from their highly anticipated second album, the follow up to 'More Than A Lot'.

Chase & Status' first live show came in the form of an incendiary performance at Radio 1's Big Weekend last year. This paved the way for major summer festival slots at the likes of Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds, Bestival, Global Gathering and Creamfields, as well as their first live headline tour which saw them playing to over 30,000 people. Featuring MC Rage, Andy Gangadeen on drums, Chase & Status Live, described by Mixmag as "rocking the living crap out of dance floors across the globe", is one show not to be missed.

Chase & Status released single 'End Credits' featuring Plan B in November and it stormed straight into the Top 10. The single was taken from the recent hit British movie Harry Brown, starring Michael Caine and also Plan B. Preceding 'End Credits', Chase & Status released their debut album 'More Than A Lot' on the independent label RAM last year, selling 75,000 copies and quickly amassing legions of fans.

Whether it is Drum & Bass, Hip-Hop, or Dubstep, the duo's versatility has enabled them to become leaders within the most cutting edge genres. In the past 12 months their production work includes some highly-praised remix work for Jay Z and The Prodigy's recent comeback, collaborations with Snoop Dogg and more recently, Chase & Status worked on Rihanna's album Rated R.

The duo say of the tour - "We're really looking forward to getting out on the road and testing out our new material with our live band. I think people are expecting the new album to be full of big American featured artists, but in fact we've decided to keep it UK, for the most part. We just think there's more than enough talent in the UK for us to work with, to help create what we hope will be a really exciting record."
