On March 20 Casablanca Records releases Chase And Status’ 'No More idols Deluxe Edition’. Available for the first time in the USA, this package includes the critically acclaimed ‘No More idols’ album release plus a treasure chest of remixes and videos. Chase And Status will celebrate the release with an exclusive performance at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami, Florida on Sunday, March 25, with more dates scheduled for the summer 2012. Since its release in January 2011, ‘No More Idols’ has picked up platinum certification with over 500,000 albums sold, featured six huge singles – all A-listed at Radio 1 – with a combined sales of over one million; and charted at #2 in the UK and stayed in the top 10 for 10 weeks. Live, Chase And Status sold out their November 2011 UK Academy Tour months in advance while playing to over 55,000 people and sold out their spring 2011 USA tour.
In all, Chase And Status were the biggest selling UK band of 2011. Now it’s time to hit America hard with a sound that’s been tearing up the rest of the world. In addition to massive tracks ‘End Credits’ (featuring Plan B), ‘Let You Go’ (featuring Mali), ‘Hypest Hype’ (featuring Tempa T), ‘Blind Faith’ (featuring Liam Bailey), ‘Time’ (featuring Delilah), ‘Hitz’ (featuring Tinie Tempah) and ‘Flashing Lights’ (featuring Sub Focus & Takura), ‘No More Idols Deluxe Edition’ features remixes from some of the hottest names on the global scene including Nero, Brookes Brothers, Feed Me, Trolley Snatcha, Wilkinson, 16Bit Remix and Dillon Francis.
Named by Mixmag as having “One of the most stunning live shows in dance music” and “A heavy hearted soul-baring, rave revival” by Spin, a Chase & Status concert is something not to be missed. It’s a stadium show featuring a full live band, guest vocalists, mosh pits and massive bass. Check out the video recap below of their romp through the 2011 European summer festival circuit:
