Today, The Neighbourhood is back to share a new song and video from their forthcoming album Chip Chrome & The Mono-Tones. “Pretty Boy” arrives alongside a gut-wrenching video, partially shot in the iconic Jones Restaurant in Los Angeles, that depicts a more vulnerable side to Chip Chrome. The track follows the previously-released singles “Devils Advocate,” which came with a video about finding greatness in simplicity and “Cherry Flavoured,” that arrived with an animated Christopher Wilson-directed video.
To coincide with the release of “Pretty Boy,” The Neighbourhood will be going live on Twitch tonight at 5pm PST. The band will perform live and air an interview between Jesse Rutherford and activist Keith Harward of The Innocence Project.
Chip Chrome & The Mono-Tones is out September 25th via Columbia Records. The album is the follow-up to their 2018 release, Hard To Imagine The Neighbourhood Ever Changing, and finds the band fully transformed into the album’s title characters with Jesse Rutherford serving as Chip Chrome and the rest of the band as The Mono-Tones. Initially introduced in 2019’s “Middle of Somewhere” video, Chip Chrome and The Mono-Tones quickly became a vessel for inspiration and a tangible extension of the next stage of The Neighbourhood, the characters allowing for a new evolution of their sound and artistry.
