Chase and Status have had an incredible year so far. They headlined The Other Stage at Glastonbury in June, played a storming, riotous set at Reading and Leeds in August and last week released their third album ‘Brand New Machine’, which stormed into the charts and debuted at number 2 on Sunday.
Current single ‘Count On Me’, featuring Moko, was a fan favourite at festivals throughout Europe this summer and broke into the Top 5 of the Official UK charts on release a fortnight ago.
Always keen to discover and promote new upcoming talent, ‘Brand New Machine’ features a raft of rising stars and underground names. Saul Milton (Chase) and Will Kennard (Status) are extremely passionate about finding and nurturing new artists and despite receiving a vast amount of requests to feature from all the big names, they opted for working with emerging new talent including Moko, Elli Ingram, Knytro, Abigail Wyles, Ed Thomas, Jacob Banks and more. The album also plays host to collaborations with the legendary Nile Rogers as well as US rapper Pusha T. ‘Brand New Machine’ gives a nod to the 90’s rave era which inspired Chase and Status and showcases the duo’s talent to write songs that charge through the boundaries of dance music, and cross over into everyone’s consciousness.
Next up, Chase and Status, along with their live band MC Rage and Andy Gangadeen, head out on their first UK Arena tour, kicking off at Capital FM Arena Nottingham on 31 October. They will be joined by stellar support acts on the tour; the immensely talented Moko, who has just signed to the band’s label MTA Records and featured on single ‘Count On Me’; legendary Clipse rapper Pusha T, who also features on ‘Brand New Machine’ and finally, bringing his critically acclaimed Live show, Belgian super producer Netsky.
The tour will see fantastic production, as fans have come to expect from Chase and Status Live shows, incorporating much of ‘Brand New Machine’ and promising scenes of carnage and mayhem! The shows will feature some of the talented collaborators from the album as well as some exciting special guests.
