Following their fourth consecutive number 1 album, the double Grammy winning Push The Button, The Chemical Brothers return with their sixth long player. We Are The Night is The Chemical Brothers finest record yet, twelve tracks of psychedelic warehouse party acid music, euphorically melodic and as uncompromising as their retina scorching live shows. Recorded undercover of darkness in a bombproof bunker in South London, We Are The Night is a route map through modern psychedelia. Effortlessly evoking the dancefloors of Manchester and Minneapolis in the early 80s and London of 2007, this is The Chemical Brothers at their very best. Infectious from the ominous opening through to the gorgeous dying embers, the record features some of their most mind-blowing music to date, a massive step up for the duo in terms of both production and sound. The album builds on the band's immense back catalogue and reaffirms them as true pioneers of electronic music, a band who are consistently hugely successful both critically and commercially. We Are The Night follows on from 2005s Push The Button, which featured the huge single Galvanize, the most played record on Radio One of that year.
As is often the way with Chemical Brothers records, it achieved a life of its own, soundtracking everything from South American raves to the Notting Hill Carnival and all points in between.
The duo recently sneaked out an album preview (the anonymously released ultra limited Electronic Battle Weapon 8 & 9). Much of the record has been tested out on dancefloors across the world during the past twelve months.
