Chiddy Bang to Headline Bamboozle Road Show Tour
Tue, 29 Mar 2011 10:11:11
Hip-hop electro duo Chiddy Bang have just been announced as the headliner for The Bamboozle Road Show powered by ArenaRap.com, which will commence on May 4th in Boston. The tour will also feature Dev, Ninjasonik and special guest, Pusha T. Chiddy Bang are also scheduled to appear on all three days of The 2011 Bamboozle Festival in NJ alongside acts like Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, The Gaslight Anthem and A Day to Remember.
The tour announcement comes on the heels of their recent win of Best Video at the 2011 MTVu Woodie Awards, which was voted by the fans. The breakthrough duo has sold one million units worldwide and beat out notable artists such as Gorillaz, Black Keys and Vampire Weekend for the coveted award.
Of the tour, Chiddy said, "We can't wait to headline the Bamboozle Roadshow. It's our biggest tour yet so it kinda feels like our first in a way. I'm a huge fan of Pusha - and Dev and Ninjasonik are the homies so it should be a wild one."
The tour is also a prelude to Chiddy Bang's debut, Breakfast, which is due out Summer 2011. The upcoming album will feature mostly tracks produced by Xaphoon Jones, one half of the group with the clever rhymes fans have come to expect from emcee Chiddy. The duo wanted to keep the album pure and true to what they have been known for which is good music without the clutter of countless guest appearances; the album will feature 12 all new tracks.
Xaphoon explained the album name change --it was originally set to be called The Swelly Life-- and the unconventional title, saying "The reason we re-named the album Breakfast is because "1.) We Eatin, 2.) Its the most important yet most neglected meal of the day, 3.) It's the first course on our musical journey, and 4.) I can cook really fluffy eggs - double boil technique."
We agree - we love breakfast, too.
