Chromatics tease long-awaited new album ‘Dear Tommy’

Fans have been anticipating album's release since 2014

Chromatics have dropped yet another hint towards the release of their fifth album ‘Dear Tommy’.

The band’s management company Echo Park recently posted a gory photo of a blood-splattered guitar on Twitter with no other words except the album title.

Fans have already been kept waiting for quite some time for the 17 track release after it was originally announced back in December 2014. The record was reported to be available before the following February through the Los Angeles label Italian’s Do It Better.


Following up 2012’s ‘Kill For Love’, the Portland band released the three-track single ‘Yes’ in February 2015 which was used for Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut ‘Lost River’. It was the first time they had worked together since the widely successful soundtrack to 2011’s ‘Drive’.

In November 2015 the band released seven different cover versions of Cyndi Lauper’s eighties classic ‘Girls Just Wanna Have Fun’. It was also used in an advert for the company Mango which starred Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne.
