Prior to their headlining show at this weekend’s All Points East Festival in London, The Chemical Brothers dropped in to the popular Beats 1 programme to discuss their new album, No Geography, with Zane Lowe. During the discussion, the band discuss their new record in detail and collaborating with Noel Gallagher, Aurora and much more. You can check out the interview in full here.
The follow-up to 2015’s Born In The Echoes, No Geography recently debuted at No. 4 on the UK chart and the critical response has been overwhelmingly positive. Reviews such as Q’s (“Music that has the dizzying, adaptive plasticity of their best work…a formidable creation”), Mojo’s (““By heading back to the future, the Chemical Brothers have acquired new urgency”) and Pitchfork’s (“Thirty years in, the Chemical Brothers are still digging their own purely escapist sonic rabbit holes. At a time of great cultural and global insecurity, there’s never been a more tempting time to get lost in their sensory overload”) are just a few of the accolades which have been rolling in.
As uDiscover Music previously reported, the pioneering electronic duo are set to play All Points East on Friday, 24 May. This year’s event runs from 24 May to 2 June 2019 and also includes influential names such as Hot Chip, Primal Scream, Little Dragon and Spiritualized.
All Points East is returning to Tower Hamlets’ Victoria Park for a second year, following a sold-out 2018 debut that included headline shows from stars such as Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, The National, LCD Soundsystem, Bjork and The xx.
Jim King, executive vice president of live music at AEG Presents, said: “We are thrilled to be returning to Victoria Park for a second year with an artist bill as exciting as our first year.
“We’re expanding our programme of midweek entertainment and again working alongside some of the best local suppliers to produce an incredible ten days of entertainment with something for everyone.”
