One year after the double single UR Paranoid/Off The Grid and the full-length Wallop, American band Chk Chk Chk have announced the release of a new EP. Certified Heavy Kats will be out on July 31st via Warp Records. It pays homage to the varying strains of club music the band has always turned to for inspiration.
Mixing elements of Chicago House, UK Garage, NYC Disco, and a bit of everything in between, ‘Certified Heavy Katz’ is a high-wire act between subtly-produced grooves and controlled sonic chaos from a veteran band firing on all cylinders, featuring contributions from Liars frontman Angus Andrew, Maria Uzor of UK duo Sink Ya Teeth, and longtime co-vocalist Meah Pace.
“This is us exploring the outer edges of what we do,” explains frontman Nic Offer. “We try a lot of different things with the hopes of coming up with something fresh by getting it wrong. How wrong did we get it this time?”
We already shared “Do The Dial Tone”; “Walk It Off” is a new excerpt. Listen below.
