01 NOVEMBER 2019 (TORONTO, ON) - The Chemical Brothers prepare for the release of the deluxe 20th anniversary edition of Surrender on November 22nd 2019 with announcements of radio station takeovers, limited vinyl releases and a very special one-off event at the BFI Southbank hosted by Adam Buxton.


On Friday 8th November, BBC6 Music begins a three day celebration of the Chemical Brothers. Something for the Weekend will feature new interviews, classic DJ mixes, personal playlists and recordings from one legendary live show. The schedule for Something for the Weekend is:


Friday 8th

19:00 – 21:00 Lauren Laverne presents an ‘Under the Influence’ special where she chats to the duo about the music that has meant the most to them over the course of the last two decades. Tom and Ed will pick tunes from the likes of Beastie Boys, Spirtualized, Derrick May and New Order as well as reflecting on their own back catalogue and sharing a shed load of stories from both their live shows and the studio.

21:00 – 00:00 Tom Ravenscroft features a classic archive Chemical Brothers mix


Saturday 9th

00:00 – 02:00 Nemone features a late night Chemical Brothers Mix

That same weekend, the BFI’s music video platform BUG presents a very special show at the BFI Southbank hosted by Adam Buxton celebrating the band’s incredible music videos and live visual output. BUG will be showing the greatest Chemical Brothers promos and Adam will dip into the band’s pioneering and extraordinary live visuals with their longstanding creative directors, Adam Smith and Marcus Lyall.


The following week, the band release an extremely limited vinyl pressing of the Secret Psychedelic mix of ‘Out Of Control’. This track is part of a suite of remixes Tom and Ed prepared back in 1999 to complement Surrender. Unreleased at the time, they were recently unearthed when archive work began on the expanded 2019 20th anniversary box set editions. Of the five Secret Psychedelic Mixes on the new set, the aptly titled ‘Out Of Control (21 Minutes Of Madness)’ takes the Surrender classic and transports the listener to all kinds of interesting places. A strictly limited 1999 one-sided white label copies of this mix have been pressed and will be released globally for high street record stores only on November 15th 2019.


As previously announced, The Chemical Brothers play their biggest ever UK dates when they hit arenas in the autumn. See full list of dates online at
