Professionally known as the Chemical Brothers, Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons just dropped a live versions of their classic acid house dance single, ‘No Reason.’
Complete with a hypnotic visualizer directed by longtime collaborators Smith and Lyall and choreographed and performed by Gecko Theatre, the track was mixed in Dolby ATMOS by Giles Martin – the son of famed Beatles producer George Martin – at the legendary Abbey Road Studios.
In addition to streaming, the single will also be available April 28 as a limited edition red vinyl 12-inch with a previously unreleased B-side track ‘All Of A Sudden.’
As the Chems are currently busy working on the follow-up to 2019’s ‘No Geography’ full length, the new song marks the EDM duo’s first release since 2021’s ‘The Darkness That You Fear.’
With a busy festival season ahead, the musicians are re-booked at Coachella on April 14 and 21 after the pair were forced to pull out of Glastonbury, while Tom recovered from COVID-19. The brothers were scheduled to play at Worthy Farm in June, however, after Tom and members of their crew tested positive for the virus they had to miss their set.
At the time, the ‘Galvanize’ hitmakers stated “We are very sorry to announce that we won’t be DJing at Arcadia this evening at Glastonbury.” “We were so excited to be back in the fields and to celebrate the return of the festival, as we were to be playing in Cork on Thursday night. We were hoping that more days of rest would allow Tom to recover from Covid, this hasn’t so far been the case.” “We are hoping that Tom will recover in time to play the scheduled Castle Howard show in York on Sunday and will update with progress as soon as possible via our social channels.” “We share the disappointment and frustration at not being able to do what we do with all of you.” “Love is all, Tom and Ed.”
