The Chemical Brothers恐怕是当今以电音DJ起家，却拥有如摇滚巨星般地位的少见组合。从90年中开始，这对曼彻斯特搭档，是如何以那些空前的创作改变了我辈青少年的音乐视野，已经难以尽数，推崇他们改变了世界绝非夸张吹捧之词，尤其那如巨石滚动的低音节奏夹带星火乱窜般的电子声效，以及配备强烈憾人投影视觉，令其煽动力无限加码的现场表演，更让他们始终屹立时代尖端，并且在当年同属Big Beat流派如Bentley Rhythm Ace、Propellerheads乃至Fatboy Slim等单位再难当年风光，曾经叱吒风云的Prodigy又一度停产，Underworld等大团活动力大不如前，Leftfield已宣告解散之时，犹能愈战愈勇，同时跨足Primal Scream与Manic Street Preachers等顶级摇滚大团制作混音，无疑使当年融合摇滚与舞曲之宣言，落实出一种浑然天成的新地。
The Chemical Brothers is a Grammy Award winning electronic music duo from England, comprising Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons (occasionally referred to as Chemical Ed and Chemical Tom). Initially they called themselves "The Dust Brothers", after the noted US production duo of the same name, but their burgeoning popularity and the threat of legal action from the originals led them to change their name in 1995. Along with The Prodigy, Fatboy Slim, The Crystal Method and a few other lesser-known acts they were pioneers of the big beat electronic dance genre, and are known for high-quality live sets.
We Are the Night is the upcoming sixth studio album by English electronica duo The Chemical Brothers. The album is scheduled for release on July 2, 2007 in the United Kingdom and July 17, 2007 in the United States.
