Canadian electrofunk band Chromeo is bringing a little bit of 80s electronic music back to the mainstream, both on tour dates and hit albums like Fancy Footwork. Chromeo's music has been featured in numerous video games, movies, and clubs and the duo has played concert dates at some of the most popular music festivals in the world. The successful release of their third album, Business Casual, last year means that Chromeo is at it again with months worth of tour dates in 2011.
Chromeo members P-Thugg (Patrick Gemayel) and Dave 1 (David Macklovitch) have been friends since high school and formed the group at the behest of DJ Tiga. While Chromeo's 2004, debut album She's in Control garnered them slight recognition and small tour dates, it was their second album, Fancy Footwork, that gained them widespread recognition. The success of the album took the duo on nearly two years worth of tour dates, including performances at Glastonbury, Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Fujirock. Chromeo's latest album, Business Casual, has also received great reviews for singles like "Hot Mess" and "Don't Turn the Lights On."
As is becoming a trend with Chromeo, the duo has 2011 tour dates that last well into winter, even though the album was released nearly a year ago. After playing a number of music festivals in Europe, the UK, and North America, Chromeo will begin their Night Falls Tour on September 14. Most concert dates will feature Mayer Hawthorne and Breakbot, and Chromeo's 2011 tour dates will end on November 2.
