Chem Bros go Further

Ya, not much of a 'video' but the beauty of new Chemical Brothers music more than makes up for it. I'm guessing this image is just a teaser of the film which supposed to accompany each of the tracks on the new album. They've enlisted long time visual collaborator, Adam Smith (who has been responsible for creating the visual backdrop for every Chem Bros gig since their live debut in 1994) as well as Marcus Lyall to plan visuals for each song as the record progresses. Due out in June of 2010, 'Further' will not feature collaborations with other artists (like Chem Bros friend, Beth Orton) but will be 8 tracks of original music from Ed & Tom.

The band's four shows running from the 20th - 23rd May at the Roundhouse (which sold out in record time) and gigs at Sonar Festival and selected festivals in Europe will see the band play the album and Smith and Lyall's new films in their entirety. These will only be seen in sequence at those gigs. The Roundhouse shows will be the first chance to hear the album anywhere. After the gigs, the films will feature on a special edition DVD release and on iTunes LP.
