FAR EAST MOVEMENT’S ‘LIKE A G6’ OFFICIALLY PLATINUM
ANNOUNCE NOVEMBER TOUR DATES WITH LA ROUX
DEBUT ALBUM ‘FREE WIRED’ IN STORES NOW
Far East Movement’s (aka FM) chart topping smash ‘Like A G6’ was certified platinum this week selling over 1.1 million copies to date. The song remains at the #1 spot on the country’s Digital Song chart and #2 on Billboard Hot 100 for the second week in a row.
The group will be ‘geekin out’ at shows in November with ‘Bulletproof’ and ‘In For The Kill’ hit makers La Roux. Far East Movement combine electro and hip-hop music for a high-energy downtown Los Angeles loft party sound and lifestyle called ‘Free Wired.’
“We want fans at our shows to feel free to let loose and ‘geek out’ however they feel comfortable. Our music and lifestyle is about bringing the energy and making sure everyone is having a good time,” says Kev Nish.
Earlier this week, 500+ fans packed the Hard Rock Café in Times Square New York for a chance to meet Far East Movement and see them perform at “Cherrytree Times Square” with label mates Mohambi, Colette Carr and Vincent Frank aka Frankmusik. The event helped raise awareness and funds for Hard Rock Café’s “Pinktober” campaign to fight breast cancer by donating proceeds from the merchandise sold to “Pinktober” fund. The group also celebrated the album release of ‘Free Wired’ and signed hundreds of copies for fans.
