The follow-up to 2007's 'We Are The Night' combines the more club-oriented and experimental mindset of Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons's 'Electronic Battle Weapon' series of 12-inches with such unlikely influences as West Coast pop and My Bloody Valentine.
The visuals for 'Further' will be the duo's their most complex yet, a statement said. Each of the album's eight tracks has a corresponding film, created together with long-term visual collaborators Adam Smith and Marcus Lyall. Smith has worked on the visuals for every Chemical Brothers live show since their debut in 1994. He has since gone on to a career as a TV and film director and recently finished work on the first episode of the forthcoming series of sci-fi classic 'Doctor Who.'
The band will play the album in its entirety, together with the accompanying films at their four-night stand at the Roundhouse in London, which runs from May 20 to 23, and also at selected festivals in Europe, including Sonar in Barcelona. The films will then feature on a special edition DVD and iTunes album.
'Further' is released on June 7 through Freestyle Dust/Parlophone.
