CHAPPO Announces US Tour w/ Royal Teeth, Kicking Off 1/30

“I Don’t Need The Sun” (Big Data Remix) Drops w/ Vibe Today

Following the announcement of their new LP, Brooklyn band CHAPPO has announced a US tour with Royal Teeth that will kick off on January 30th in New Orleans. The band will be unveiling tracks from their new album, Future Former Self, out March 4th via their own Rouse Records. Fans were offered an early taste of the album with first single “I Don’t Need The Sun,” and today, Vibe premieres Big Data’s remix of the track. You can post & share the Big Data remix via below, and also check out CHAPPO’s remix of Big Data’s “Dangerous,” streaming here.

CHAPPO burst onto the music scene when their infectious single “Come Home” was featured in an iPod commercial, and they’ve been gaining momentum since, touring with bands like Of Montreal & Imagine Dragons, playing Bonnaroo & Osheaga, and earning widespread praise for their 2012 debut album Moonwater. Future Former Self  takes things to a new level, telling the story of character Rene Cogito’s journey to a black hole and addressing the abstract concept of time in the process. The album combines CHAPPO’s unique sound– which sits somewhere between the guitar-driven psychedelia of 60’s west coast rock and the spiritual witch doctor moonshine of Dr. John– with narrative lyrics and catchy hooks, to take listeners on a wild ride.

CHAPPO’s live show is nothing short of a full-blown spectacle, with costumes, confetti, and a buzzing, palpable energy. In addition to their upcoming dates with Royal Teeth, the band will also be performing at SXSW (details coming soon). See below for a list of full tour dates, and stay tuned for more news from CHAPPO!
