The Los Angeles based band doesn’t include guitars for its soul indie pop sound. Instead the lineup utilizes Fitz (lead vocals), Noelle Scaggs (vocals/tambourine), James Kings (saxophone), Joseph Karnes (bass), John Wicks (drums) and Jeremy Ruzumma (keyboards).

The new self-titled album drops June 10 via Elektra Records. Fans who pre-order it from Fitz and The Tantrums’ online store will receive the first single “Hand Clap” instantly. Plus a code to enable first access to tickets before the artist pre-sale and public on sale.

“We’ve always tried to push ourselves at every turn. For our third album, we continued to challenge ourselves, taking care not to write the same record again,” lead singer Michael Fitzpatrick said.
