Following on from tours with Enter Shikari and Crossfaith, plus a slew of summer festivals across Europe, THE QEMISTS are now set to release Jungle, their third single from this year's Warrior Sound album. The track features none other than the mighty Hacktivist. THE QEMISTS’ Dan Arnold says of the collaboration: “When we started making Warrior Sound, Hacktivist were right up there on our list of people we'd love to collaborate with. Jungle was one of the first tracks to be created for the record and we knew we wanted Ben and J to feature on it.
“Like Run You, we felt that Jungle was a track that really defined Warrior Sound sonically, and the guys got the vibe straight away. They were hyped when they arrived at our studio in Brighton, and their verses connected like a right hook!” The single release is accompanied by an explosive video by Video Ink, the company behind THE QEMISTS' hugely popular Run You video, which has accumulated close to one million views.
“Fired up was the aim of the game when it came to making the video”, says Dan. “We thank the guys for their help on a long and hot day, in an abandoned factory, during a heat wave. It was awesome to hang out with them too, during the few breaks we had in a balls-to-the-wall schedule!” Check it out here:
THE QEMISTS play the Voodoo Rock Halloween Ball at Electrowerkz, Islington on 28th October before heading out for more tour dates in France, Czech Republic and Russia. THE QEMISTS are, in many ways, something of a conundrum. They’re rock kids seduced by the dancefloor, dance kids equally happy playing live instruments or building tracks on the computer, drum & bass aficionados who believe their hurtling breakbeats sound best under big muscular metallic guitar riffs.
