For the second U.S.
tour in support of the album Made in the
Dark released earlier this year, Hot Chip — Alexis Taylor, Joe Goddard,
Owen Clarke, Al Doyle and Felix Martin — will be adding a live drummer on these
dates. The drummer, Leo Taylor has played with the bands Zongamin and Gramme in
Hot Chip have spent much of the last 12 months compounding
their status as one of the hardest working bands around. Apart from numerous
musical side projects, remixing duties and running a record label, they have
had sold-out tours in the UK,
Europe and the US.
Now the band are set to return to the US for a second tour this Fall. The
dates include two shows each at the Wiltern in L.A.,
the Metro in Chicago,
and Terminal 5 in NYC.
Vampire Weekend, Growing, Drums Of Death and IO Echo will serve as support at
various stops on the tour.

“Over and Over”, “Out At The Pictures”, “One Pure
Thought”, “Don’t Dance”, “No Fit State”, and
