Chase & Status Announce New Single and Forthcoming AlbumMay 15, 2013
Chase and Status have announced the release of the first single from their highly-anticipated third record. The single, “Lost & Not Found” feat. Louis M^ttrs premiered on Zane Lowe’s radio show on BBC Radio1 as his Hottest Record In The World (listen to the radio rip) and a preview is now available to stream on the band’s Soundcloud page. “Lost & Not Found” will be available to download on June 30th, the same weekend that Chase and Status headline the Other Stage at Glastonbury Festival. You can also check out a preview of Dream Mclean’s remix of “Lost & Not Found” on Soundcloud.
On “Lost & Not Found,” Chase and Status give a nod to the early 90’s rave era that inspires them, the single shows a change in direction for the duo and gives their fans a glimpse of what’s to come with their new record. Always looking to support unknown and underground talent, as they did with their last album No More Idols (Maverick Sabre, Delilah, Liam Bailey etc), “Lost & Not Found” features the talented new artist Louis M^ttrs.
Following on from Glastonbury 2013, Chase and Status have an exciting Summer ahead and are looking forward to key main stage performances at Reading and Leeds Festival, T In The Park and Oxygen as well as a whole host of festival appearances around the UK and Europe.
Chase and Status are undoubtedly one of the most exciting and successful British bands of the past decade. Their double platinum, second album No More Idols has sold over 600,000 copies in the UK alone and spawned over 2 million singles. They were the biggest selling band in the UK in 2011, behind Coldplay and last year were nominated for ‘Best British Band’ at the BRIT AWARDS 2012. They have also been nominated for two prestigious Q Awards, won the Q Award in 2010 for Best Video and were picked to launch the Official England Football Kit for the Euros in 2012.
Last summer saw them play to well over a million people last summer, playing sold out tours in the UK, Europe, US and Australia and over 36 festivals around the world. Chase and Status headlined Global Gathering and SW4, and wowed the masses on the main stages at Download, T in the Park, Rock Am Ring and Benicassim. They also released their first Live DVD, ‘Live At Brixton’ last year, the trailer can be viewed HERE.
