The Chemical Brothers Release New Single And Music Video “No Reason”

Neon marching band & mind-bending chemistry - new single by electronic music heroes - kick-starting an epic year with a headline show at Coachella

Good lord. Demonstrating their status as all time icons and one of the single greatest influences on electronic music as a whole, The Chemical Brothers left the crowd in a state of jaw-dropped awe.” Billboard (Portola Festival, San Francisco Sept 2022)

“Thirty years in, the Chemical Brothers are still digging their own purely escapist sonic rabbit holes. At a time of great cultural and global insecurity, there’s never been a more tempting time to get lost in their sensory overload.” Pitchfork

17 March 2023 (Toronto, ON) – The Chemical Brothers – one of the most successful bands in the history of electronic music – return with a new single. A highlight of the Grammy Award-winning band’s recent live shows and DJ sets, No Reason is unmistakable and irresistible, built from a cascading melody, a heavy acid riff and a snare roll that rattles like a military tattoo. The track comes with a surreal ‘Neon Marching Band’ video directed by long-time collaborators Smith and Lyall and choreographed and performed by Gecko Theatre that will be familiar to anyone who saw one of the band’s incredible 2022 festival appearances.

No Reason has also been mastered in Dolby ATMOS by Giles Martin at Abbey Road Studios. Martin has previously overseen the remastering of The Beatles back catalogue.

The single will also be available as a limited edition red vinyl 12 inch with a previously unreleased b-side track All Of A Sudden. Pre order Now (17th March), available 28th April 2023.

No Reason is the first new music released by The Chemical Brothers since 2021’s The Darkness That You Fear. The band are currently working on the follow up to 2019’s hugely acclaimed  album No Geography.
