Chromeo on a building in Williamsburg

"Kiiiiiiind of intense..." You'll hear our music in commercials here and there, but Pee and I have never done an ad campaign. When Bushmills kindly approached us to take part in one, we laid out our conditions clearly and carefully: we'll consider it, but we want a billboard the size of an entire building. Hand painted, at that. We want my brother to be part of the campaign too (nice little debate on whether this was a sell-out move over on his blog, by the way). The photography's got to be simple, classic and show that we're just buddies being ourselves, not indulging in any kind of product. Oh, and it has to be shot by someone who also worked with DMX. Hey, it worked. Drink responsibly.

Update: I was joking about the whole hand painted, DMX thing. (My dad didn't get it so I thought I'd clarify. [Chromeo]

Also in the ads, which you may have seen around NYC (the 8 Ave-14th St subway, for one), are Fool's Gold, No Mas, DFA Records and Kai Regan.

As for music, Chromeo release their next album, Business Casual, on August 17th. The song "Night by Night" from that album is a free download at Mountain Dew's Green Label Sound site. The full tracklist is below.

Chromeo' next show is at Bonnaroo (where the band will play with Daryl Hall), and they kick off a tour with Holy Ghost! on July 26th. That tour hits Bowery Ballroom in NYC on Thursday, July 29th. Tickets go on sale at noon today (5/26).

DFA's Holy Ghost! has become a household name (around here) lately thanks to the project officially becoming a full band and opening for LCD Soundsystem on their current tour which included four nights at Terminal 5. As previously mentioned, the band's other tour dates also include an opening slot for Hot Chip at Summerstage. They've since added their first headlining show too. It happens June 24th at Le Poisson Rouge and tickets are on sale.

All Chromeo tour dates and a teaser for the Bushmills ads are below...

Why would there even be a debate about fucking Chromeo selling out? Not like they had all sorts of indie cred before this.

What is indie cred and how much does it cost?

I would rather be strapped to a chair and forced to listen to Insane Clown Posse, then this auto-tune house music horse shit that these two douche bags churn out.

If the US military wants to interigate prisoners with ties to terrorists, they should make them listen to Chromeo full blast. They'll be talkin in no time.

they gain cred by putting the product first. other groups put themselves in front of their music. like lcd soundsystem.

To end this thread, can we all just agree that drinking good whiskey while listening to the painfully awful sounds of Chromeo seems like the worst night EVER??!

Posted by Anonymous | May 26, 2010 10:57 AM

Drinking good whiskey in almost any situation can't be painful!

Chromeo had a Reese's Peanut Butter commerical around their last album. So he's lying.

What would you call a Mountain Dew with Bushmills? A Chromeo?

Posted by Anonymous | May 26, 2010 12:08 PM

They were fun at Brooklyn Bowl last year.

FYI Heavy Street, Chromeo isn't house music and there is no auto tune on the album, its called a talkbox and was used heavily on 70s funk recordings. so before you hate maybe you should you know.... know what the fuck you're talking about...jack ass

Tickets are back on sale. Bowery released a few about fifteen minutes ago and they still aren't gone.

Every one knows that life is very expensive, but we need cash for different things and not every person earns enough cash. Therefore to receive fast personal loans or sba loan would be a proper solution.

Posted by Aida27Garcia | May 19, 2012 2:52 AM

Different people all over the world get the loans from different banks, just because that is easy and fast.

Your blog looks nice, on the other hand it would be greater if you can use lighter colors as well as a professional design. This will ensure that a lot more readers come to check it out.Informative post by the way!
