Following their fifth consecutive UK number 1 album last year, the GRAMMY® award winning We Are The Night (Best Electronic/Dance Album), The Chemical Brothers return with Brotherhood a Best Of collection with a kick and a twist, set for release on September 2, 2008.
In a career that to date has spanned 13 years and accrued 9 million record sales Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons have established themselves as true pioneers of electronic music and as The Chemical Brothers they have become one of the most popular dance acts of all time. Now seems the perfect time to take stock of their seminal output with the double disc celebration that is Brotherhood.

The 2nd disc will feature exclusively Electronic Battle Weapons 1-10. Since 1996 Electronic Battle Weapons have acted as the laboratories for The Chems devious musical experiments and laid the rhythmic and melodic foundations for numerous tracks as well as providing some of the duos most formidable mixes. Until now Electronic Battle Weapons 1-9 have only been available on various limited formats and this is the first time they have been widely available.
Brotherhood will be preceded by the digital single "Midnight Madness", the full-length of which will be included on Disc 2. Derived and developed from Electronic Battle Weapon 10 "Midnight Madness" is The Chemical Brothers at their most infectious, euphoric, report to the dancefloor best.
