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…
