Elektra Records will release the new studio album from Fitz and The Tantrums on June 10. The self-titled album is the follow-up to 2013’s More Than Just a Dream.
“HandClap is a primal tale of love and lust, a call to arms in the late hours of the night,” says lead vocalist Fitz. “It’s the X-rated version of ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ happening on a dance floor.”
Fitz and The Tantrums will celebrate the album’s release with a North American headline tour that kicks off on June 11 at the Keloorah Festival in Brooklyn, MI and includes a June 21 show at New York City’s Terminal 5.
The Washington Post called Fitz and The Tantrums’ live show “captivatingly crazy” and Rolling Stone praised the band for its “irrepressible energy: hopped-up rhythms, shout-it-out choruses, and hooted background vocals” in a review of More Than Just a Dream. The New York Times noted, “Their debut effort, ‘Pickin’ Up the Pieces’ (Dangerbird), and follow-up, ‘More Than Just a Dream’ (Elektra), burst with danceable hooks.” The Los Angeles Times said, “Fitz…understands what makes a good song…And co-vocalist Noelle Scaggs’ charisma overflows.”
More Than Just a Dream, which has racked up over 76 million album streams to date, contained the RIAA Gold-certified singles “The Walker” (which was tapped for the 2014 OSCAR ad campaign featuring Ellen DeGeneres and a cast of dancers) and “Out Of My League.” Both songs were multi-format hits, topping Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart at #1 and placing in the Top 5 at Triple A radio and in the Top 15 at Hot AC
