Breakout electro-inspired hip-hop duo, Chiddy Bang, announced this week that they will head out on their first headlining tour throughout the west coast in support of their much buzzed about first single, “Opposite of Adults,” and their EP of the same title, both available now on iTunes.
“Opposite of Adults” has impacted Top 40 and Rhythm radio with breakout spins from major stations such as Los Angeles’ AMP 97.1 and San Francisco’s Wild 94.9.
The Opposite of Adults Tour is hot off Chiddy Bang’s successful 20-city UK tour, which followed recent sold out shows across the US with Passion Pit, The Clipse, Kid Cudi and Three 6 Mafia.
The 15 city tour kicks off on June 6 at Nuemos in Seattle and ends on June 23 in San Francisco. It is tentatively scheduled to extend into the Midwest and East Coast starting in August. The tour will also include performances by The Pack, XV and 2am Club.
Additionally, Chiddy Bang has also been added to the line-up of several high profile festivals including Lollapalooza and the UK Festivals Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds.
Chiddy Bang’s four-track EP, Opposite of Adults, will be released on June 1, 2010 through Virgin Records/EMI Music, but this week, the EP is available exclusively on iTunes as part of their “Next Big Thing” promotion.
Additionally, the playful and buzzworthy music video for the duo’s debut single, “Opposite of Adults,” a fun party jam which samples MGMT’s breakout hit “Kids,” was featured as iTunes “Music Video of the Week” for the week of May 11th. Proving it is already a fan favorite, the video recently won the coveted MTVu “Best Freshman Video” title.
