Hot Chip kicked off their North American tour in support of new album A Bath Full of Ecstasy on Tuesday night at NYC's Brooklyn Steel, which was also their first of three consecutive nights there. The show featured the live debut of two Ecstasy songs -- the album's ebullient title track and the low key "Clear Blue Skies" -- and they played a few other from the record, including singles "Hungry Child" and "Melody of Love." Like at their Elsewhere show earlier this year, the band wore paint-splattered outfits inspired by the new album's art as they also dug into their back catalog for crowd-pleasers like "One Life Stand," "Flutes," "And I Was a Boy from School," "Ready for the Floor," and "I Feel Better." Their cover of Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" was on the setlist but went unplayed, but they did cover Feist's "Let it Die." Check out the setlist below and pictures of the whole night, including tourmates Holy Fuck, are in the gallery above.

Tuesday the band also shared the video for "Bath Full of Ecstacy" which was created by artist and Hot Chip collaborator Oliver Payne. In the band's words, "Oliver envisioned 'Bath Full of Ecstasy' as a fictional late-80s Japanese video game turned cult classic. The game features each band member on their path to save the cursed kingdom, aiming to return melody and colour, and bringing back joy, with the help of Bubblebath Fairy, a Microphone and some friendly strangers...just like in real life." You can watch that below.

Hot Chip and Holy Fuck play Brooklyn Steel again tonight and Thursday (9/5) and tickets are still available.
