Rising electro-inspired hip-hop duo Chiddy Bang, comprised of rapper Chidera “Chiddy” Anamege and producer Noah “Xaphoon Jones” Beresin, follows the February release of their debut album Breakfast with an iTunes exclusive EP on Tuesday (June 19), titled Mind Your Manners.
The new EP boasts three tracks, complete with the official “Mind Your Manners (Remix)” featuring Travie McCoy and Icona Pop, the “Mind Your Manners” (Herve’s “No One Like Me Remix”) and a brand new track titled “Twisted.”
“Mind Your Manners”, the second single from Breakfast, is an upbeat, carefree track that samples the now buzzed about Swedish group Icona Pop!. Having impacted Rhythm radio in Aprilh and Top 40 in May, it has garnered spins on major FM stations across the nation.
In support of the new EP and their debut Breakfast, Chiddy Bang will continue the summer with an extensive touring schedule, which now includes opening for alternative rock band FUN. on their upcoming West Coast North American tour. Things kick off at the SDSU Open Air Theatre in San Diego, Calif. on August 15th, before hitting Las Vegas, L.A., Portland, and other cities. Overall, they will hit nine cities, concluding in Saskatoon, SK at The Odeon on August 31st.
Prior to the run with FUN., the duo will kick off their summer tour with a performance at Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE alongside acts such as The Black Keys, The Killers and Lupe Fiasco. Immediately following the festival, Chiddy Bang will participate in the “Under the Influence of Music Tour” with Grammy Award nominee Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller.
