!!! are set to release their latest album THR!!!ER on April 30, and are now sharing their single “One Girl/One Boy.” A follow up the sample-based club-floor classic tribute “Slyd”, the latest track is pure !!! gold. While working on the album in Austin with Jim Eno of Spoon, the band knew that they wanted a diva level singer for the song and Jim said he knew someone perfect, Sonia Moore, who had previously toured with MC Hammer for two and half years as a singer and dancer.
“We knew she had sang with MC Hammer and Rafael [Cohen, bassist] kept singing the “hey hey” part from “Too Legit To Quit” and we were wondering if that was who was really coming by. That was basically the first thing we asked her and she said, “Hey, Hey. Yeah, that’s me”.
Sonia joined them onstage in Austin during SXSW for their sweat-soaked dance party sets. Following the album’s release they’ll be performing in Europe, which includes a stop at ATP, before heading back to the US for a full tour which kicks off on May 16th.

THR!!!ER, the latest full-length album from !!! is coming out on April 30th and earlier today the band shared with fans a sneak peek into the record via the song “Slyd.” One of the only tracks on the album not recorded with Spoon’s Jim Eno, “Slyd” stands out for another reason, as a tribute to sample-based club-floor classics but with the signature !!! slyness. Rather than go through the process of clearing samples, they decided to craft their own “samples” and cram them into a pumping, never static structure. Additional vocals are supplied by singer Teresa Eggers and !!! singer Nic Offer’s former Out Hud bandmate Molly Schnick.
And something that should come as a surprise to no one, !!! are hitting the road again. They’ll be playing San Francisco’s Noise Pop on February 28th, and then cruising around Europe before heading back to the US in May and June.
