Hot Chip’s side project announces debut

Ahead of their trip to Australia for Stereosonic, The 2 Bears have announced the release of their debut album, to be titled Be Strong. The duo, half of which is made up of Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, is set to stay true to the dance sound you’d expect of the Brits.

The first single, Work, will be released on December 12 and the full album comes out on January 30, 2012. In the meanwhile, check out the pair’s recently released Bear Hug EP if you haven’t already.
