There aren't a whole lot of internationally-known musical acts who list Brussels as their hometown. Among those who do (or did) are Jacques Brel. Plastic Bertrand, and...did Jean Claude Van Damme ever make an album? Lucien Fraipont and Gaspard Ryelandt hope their group, Robbing Millions, will be added to that list. With a sound that is both danceable but also features some guitar chops and atmospherics (Scritti Politti by way of Mew?), the duo will release their self-titled debut album on  August 22 via [PIAS]. We've got the premiere of new single "8 Is The Figure That I like The Most" and you can stream that below.

You may have caught Robbing Millions at the 2015 CMJ festival. They don't have any North American dates scheduled at this time, but they will be on tour in Europe, including a show in Amsterdam on May 10 with Brooklyn's Beverly. All dates are listed below.
