Fueled By Ramen/Photo Finish recording artists 3OH!3 are celebrating today’s release of their new album, “NIGHT SPORTS,” available now on the iTunes Store and all DSPs as well as via Spotify and other streaming services.
3OH!3 will celebrate “NIGHT SPORTS” with a series of select appearances on this year’s Vans Warped Tour. The dates run from July 21st in Cincinnati through a hometown appearance in Denver on July 31st. For updates and more, please see www.3oh3music.com/tour.
“NIGHT SPORTS” sees 3OH!3’s Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte embracing cutting edge production and more creative songwriting than ever before, resulting in their most idiosyncratic collection thus far. Produced, engineered, and mixed entirely by Motte, the album retains the duo’s trademark raw humor while also embracing a surprising new edge and eclectic sensibility. Tracks like “Mad At You” and “Freak Your Mind” layer propulsive beats, soaring pop choruses, and spitfire hip-hop energy, their diverse energy fueled by 3OH!3’s extracurricular forays into producing and songwriting for such superstar artists as Ariana Grande, Beck, Maroon 5, Kaskade, Fitz & the Tantrums, and Lil Jon. Inventive, imaginative, and utterly inspired, “NIGHT SPORTS” is the convergence of everything 3OH!3 has picked up on their multi-million-selling journey as well an undeniable and natural evolution forward.
3OH!3 exploded onto an unsuspecting mainstream with 2008’s smash second album, “WANT.” Fueled by the 3x RIAA platinum certified, #1 hit, “Don’t Trust Me” and its platinum certified follow-up, “Starstrukk (Feat. Katy Perry),” the album earned gold certification and cumulative digital track sales in excess of 6.5 million.
“STREETS OF GOLD” followed in 2010, debuting at #1 on Billboard’s “Dance/Electronic Albums” chart while simultaneously making a top 10 entry on the Billboard 200 in its first week of release. The album – which includes the RIAA platinum certified, top 10 hit, “My First Kiss (Feat. Ke$ha)” – once again saw the Boulder, CO-based duo continuing to push the envelope with their distinctive mash-up of electro, pop, rock, punk, and hip hop, this time in association with such studio superstars as Benny Blanco (Wiz Khalifa, Selena Gomez), Greg Kurstin (Adele, Lana Del Rey), and Matt Squire (Panic! At The Disco, Ariana Grande).
A truly explosive live act, 3OH!3 has sold out shows around the world, earning a “Best Tour” nomination at the 2009 mtvU Awards. Other accolades include a pair of prestigious MTV Video Music Awards nods, including “Best New Artist” and “Best Collaboration” (for “My First Kiss”).
