Earlier this month, The Chemical Brothers returned with a new single called ‘No Reason’. The pair are said to be currently working on the follow-up to their ninth studio album No Geography, which came out in 2019.

This summer will see the group makes appearances at the Isle Of Wight Festival and Wilderness Festival, as well as various European events such as BBK Live in Spain, Best Kept Secret Festival in the Netherlands, and NorthSide Festival in Denmark.

Next month, The Chemical Brothers will perform at Coachella 2023 in Indio, California. You can see the duo’s full live itinerary here.

Last year, the band were forced to pull out of their last-minute DJ set at Glastonbury 2022 after Rowlands contracted COVID. The Chemical Brothers have not yet confirmed whether they’ll be making a return to Worthy Farm this June.
