Thank You.

HC Brixton

The UK tour is now over – an incredible series of gigs, we’re still trying to take the whole thing in. Here’s a few kind words written by people who came to the final shows in London.

A gig that reminded us that we should cherish Hot Chip while they’re still around.” Evening Standard

A triumphant homecoming for the best dance act of their generation.” Gigwise

At Brixton Academy, Hot Chip cemented their position as one of Britain’s greatest electronic pop groups in a generation, on record and in the live setting.” The Line of Best Fit

When they are firing on all cylinders, the results are thrilling and incredibly hard for anyone to top.” Music OMH

Hot Chip reeled out a selection of hits that reminded you of just how long they’ve been at their musical peak.” Ransom Note

When the songs are riddled with grooves as infectious as this, you’ll be grinning, embracing the stranger next to you and dancing too hard to care.” London In Stereo

In case you missed it last week, the deluxe version of Why Make Sense? is available now, as is the standalone Dancing In The Dark EP.

Hot Chip UK Tour & Support Acts

Hot Chip head out on a UK tour that’s very nearly sold out – there’s a handful of tickets left for gigs in Portsmouth, Nottingham and Cambridge, otherwise all tickets for other shows are gone. Make sure to get in early as support comes from long time friend of the band Pete Um (Bristol, Portsmouth, Glasgow), new Domino signing Georgia (Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham, Cambridge – please note Pete Um has replaced Georgia for the earlier gigs after a scheduling conflict meant she couldn’t play them), Lonelady (the first Brixton show, 22nd) and Shamir (the second Brixton show, 23rd).
