Grammatically challenged Colorado duo Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte, aka 3OH!3, have made a habit of successfully hooking up with a range of established stars; a move which has kept their electro-pop away from the dark indie corners of the music scene and brought it into the glaring limelight of the mainstream.
Collaborations with Katy Perry (on single Starstrukk) and Ke$ha (on My First Kiss) may have grabbed the headlines but, in truth, 3OH!3 were already well on their way with second single, Don't Trust Me, peaking at an impressive No 7 on the US Billboard countdown, and doing so unfettered by any established names. The albums also spoke for themselves, with their second, 2008's Want, reaching No 2 on the US Dance chart. The third studio record, Streets of Gold, released in 2010, did better still; making the main US Top Ten, peaking at No 19 on the UK countdown and charting all over the world.
A fourth album is due for later this year and, in support, 3OH!3 have announced a series of autumn shows which are likely to sell out given the probable success of the new material (if the progress of current single Do Or Die is anything to go by).
Sean and Nathaniel kick off their UK tour at the O2 Academy on Birmingham on 3rd November, followed by shows in Newcastle, Leeds and Manchester, then the Vans Warped London gig, and then the last date announced so far, at the Waterfront in Norwich on Sunday 11th November 2012. We will have tickets available from 9am on Wednesday.
We also have some tickets remaining for the Vans Warped date at the Alexandra Palace on 11th November, priced £40.
