CHICANO BATMAN

ANNOUNCES FALL TOUR WITH KHRUANGBIN

+ TWO SOLD OUT NIGHTS AT THE FONDA IN LA

KCRW’S “MORNING BECOMES ECLECTIC” LIVE SESSION THIS FRIDAY, JUNE 16

SHARES “FREEDOM IS FREE (LIVE @ THE DIAMOND MINE)”

FREEDOM IS FREE OUT NOW ON ATO RECORDS

 

New York, NY (June 13, 2017) — Chicano Batman recently released Freedom Is Free via ATO Records and announces a fall tour with Khruangbin on top of a festival filled summer. New dates include two-night stands in New York and LA (with LA already sold out), stops in Boston, Atlanta, DC, Austin & Portland and a newly added festival appearance at Voodoo Music + Arts in New Orleans in addition to previously announced performances at FYF, Newport Folk, XPoNential Fest, Bumbershoot, Central Park Summer Stage and more.
The band will be making their debut appearance on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic this Friday, June 16 a few days before their first shows ever in Mexico.
Freedom Is Free is among Billboard’s ‘Best Albums of 2017 So Far’ and the Leon Michels (El Michels Affair, The Arcs) produced album’s cultural significance continues to build, even though, ironically, it wasn’t written and recorded with our current political situation in mind. Enjoy a live performance of the title track recorded at The Diamond Mine, Leon’s studio where the album was recorded.

“The best and most important work in the band’s career”
LA Times
“Poised to break out in a big way”
NPR Music
“The L.A.-based quartet collides soul, surf and Tropicália into a raging blend of fire and excitement”
Rolling Stone
“Chicano Batman have gone full Gil Scott-Heron on new album”
Noisey
“Chicano Batman would rather build bridges and open doors for those who, like them,
long felt shut out of mainstream music and art, and open the eyes of an increasingly nationalistic world to the reality that we are all in the same boat”
Billboard
“Freedom Is Free is their clearest statement, a record that revolves around the soul sound they’ve refined over the years but that doesn’t sacrifice ambitious adventures into Afrobeat, Brazilian pop,
baroque psychedelia and the band’s first firm venture into political territory.”
LA Weekly [Cover Story]
