!!! Video + Contest

chk

!!! have just released their fifth full length album THR!!!ER and are hitting the road starting today for a month long US tour. Guest vocalist Sonia Moore (of “2 Legit 2 Quit” fame) will not be joining, so the band is going to choose one fan per city to come up on stage and sing along.

Sing With Chk Contest – Note from the band:

Come on, admit it. You’ve dreamed about singing with !!!. Only a few of us have been able to live that dream but now you can too. We’re not bringing Sonia Moore, the singer from One Girl/One Boy, so we want you to come up and sing w/ us when we hit your town.

Upload a youtube video of you singing along or send an mp3 to singwithchk@gmail.com. No big deal, just you in front of the mirror singing into the hairbrush style will do. We’ll sift through the entries and holler at you if you’ve got what it takes. You’ll of course be judged on your vocal ability, but dance moves and star quality definitely help. If anything, it’s a free ticket for you and your bff for the show. No flakes, no egos, no drug problems.

Listen: !!! – “One Girl/One Boy”

!!!

!!! 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.
