Mic Check is the second single to be taken from Hadouken!’s current album For The Masses and is being played just about everywhere right now.
For some reason it only makes Radio 1’s ‘B’ list, but still managed ‘Record of the Week’ on the Fearne Cotton show and was Zane Lowe’s ‘Hottest Record in the World.’
Elsewhere the video is playlisted on all the favourite channels, such as MTV, NME and Kerrang!
Hadouken!’s headline dates in every major UK town and city have proven once again that they’re one of 2010’s most potent live forces, with an energy and exuberance on stage that has drawn comparisons to the Prodigy and Pendulum. Farther afield, the band debuted in the US in February, and will be returning to play Coachella later in the spring. A European tour kicks off shortly.
‘For The Masses’ was recorded with gilded Dutch electronic producers Noisia and is available on Hadouken!’s own Surface Noise Recordings. In contrast to the art-school show ponies and electro-pop crooners that make up UK music’s current establishment, Hadouken! go in loud, hard, and fast.
‘For The Masses’ captures their raw, visceral sound, and lands somewhere between the Prodigy’s ‘Fat Of The Land’ and Pendulum’s ‘In Silico’.
