The Washington Post called Fitz and The Tantrums live show captivatingly crazy and Rolling Stone praised the band for its irrepressible energy: hopped-up rhythms, shout-it-out choruses, and hooted background vocals in a review of More Than Just a Dream. The New York Times noted, Their debut effort, Pickin Up the Pieces (Dangerbird), and follow-up, More Than Just a Dream (Elektra), burst with danceable hooks. The Los Angeles Times said, Fitzunderstands what makes a good songAnd co-vocalist Noelle Scaggs charisma overflows. More Than Just a Dream, which has racked up over 76 million album streams to date, contained the RIAA Gold-certified singles The Walker (which was 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 Billboards Alternative Songs chart at #1 and placing in the Top 5 at Triple A radio and in the Top 15 at Hot AC. Fitz and The Tantrums natural exuberance permeates their new self-titled album, which celebrates walking to the beat of your own drum. Lead singer, Michael Fitzpatrick, says of new record, Weve always tried to push ourselves at every turn. For our third album, we continued to challenge ourselves, taking care not to write the same record again. Turn It Up, Fitz exhorts at the top of album opener and first single HandClap. The horn-and-beats fueled track captures the exhilarating sense of promise and danger that a night out and a new romance hold. The staccato Complicated paints a relationship thats packed with both chemistry and conflict and bursts into an unexpected cheer. Echo and otherworldly keyboards make Tricky an intoxicating dance-floor anthem and a warning to any future lover, while A Place For Us, the album closer, encapsulates the bands belief that there is a place in the world for each of us to belong, regardless of our differences.Overall, this is an album about desire the desire for intimacy, for sex, for acceptance on your own terms and the struggle not to compromise, explains Fitz.

Fitz produced Fadeback while Joel Little (Lorde) produced Do What You Want and Ricky Reed (Jessie J) helmed HandClap.Fitz and The Tantrums are: Fitz (vocals), Noelle Scaggs (vocals/tambourine), James King (saxophone), Jeremy Ruzumna (keyboards), John Wicks (drums) and Joseph Karnes (bass). https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/id1094696189?app=itunes
