Hot Chip sign to Domino, releasing ‘In Our Heads’ in June, plus other related news (2 Bears, New Build)
by Bill Pearis
Hot Chip have signed to Domino Records who will put out the band's fifth album, In Our Heads, which will be out June 12 in all the popular formats. It will be the band's first since 2010's One Life Stand.
Hot Chip's only American show scheduled at this point is the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago on July 13, but a NYC show before or after seems likely. No music yet (or album art) at this early juncture, but the tracklisting is at the bottom of this post.
2012 is a busy year for Hot Chip, in and out of the group. Joe Goddard is one half of The 2 Bears whose debut album, Be Strong, came out back in January and is one of the more fun, danceable albums of the year so far. (You can stream it on Spotify.) Felix Martin and Al Doyle are two-thirds of New Build whose debut (very Roxy Music) is out April 3 via the band's own Lunark Recordings. New Build will be at SXSW and play Mercury Lounge March 13 and 14.
