2017 Black & Red Entertainment
Fitz & The Tantrums
Brimming with imagination, energy, and genre-smashing scope, Fitz & The Tantrums have defied the odds to become an indisputable phenomenon, a chart-topping, show-stopping modern pop combo unlike any other. Their spectacular Elektra Records debut, More Than Just a Dream, which has racked up over 76 million album streams to date, contained the RIAA Gold-certified singles “The Walker” (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, placing in the Top 5 at Triple A radio and in the Top 15 at Hot AC.
Fitz & The Tantrums’ natural exuberance permeates their new self-titled album, which celebrates walking to the beat of your own drum. Released on June 10 by Electra Records, Fitz & The Tantrums is currently celebrating with a North American headline tour. The Washington Post has called Fitz & The Tantrums’ live show “captivatingly crazy;” Rolling Stone has praised the band for its “irrepressible energy: hopped-up rhythms, shout-it-out choruses, and hooted background vocals;” and the Los Angeles Times said, “Fitz…understands what makes a good song…And co-vocalist Noelle Scaggs’ charisma overflows.”
