Decaydance/Fueled By Ramen recording group Gym Class Heroes has announced a new release date for their hugely anticipated new album, âTHE PAPERCUT CHRONICLES II.â The album â which includes the top 10 smash, âStereo Hearts (Feat. Adam Levine)â â will arrive in stores and at all digital retailers on November 15th. New songs from the album will be revealed online shortly.

âStereo Heartsâ is shaping up as another massive hit for the alternative hip-hop superstars. The gold-certified track â produced by Benny Blanco (Katy Perry, Wiz Khalifa, Ke$ha) and Robopop âis a top 10 radio hit in Canada.

Whatâs more, the âStereo Heartsâ companion video clip â directed by Hiro Murai (Lupe Fiasco, Bloc Party, B.o.B) â is in heavy rotation at MuchMusic and Musique Plus. The video is streaming now at Fueled By Ramenâs official YouTube channel (located at www.youtube.com/user/FueledByRamen) where it has drawn over 9 million views. The âStereo Heartsâ lyric video â directed by DJay Brawner (Foo Fighters, Scars On 45) and also featured at Fueled By Ramenâs YouTube channel â has proven nearly as popular, earning close to 6 million views and counting.

As if that werenât enough, âStereo Hearts (Feat. Adam Levine)â is also drawing extensive critical acclamation, with Entertainment Weekly praising its âlanguid, well-bronzed hook.â Billboard extolled frontman Travie McCoyâs âclever versesâ and Levineâs âpoignant hook,â going on to hail the âupbeat love songâ as âsomething unique.â Rolling Stone applauded McCoyâs âskill at pop that floats between styles,â declaring âStereo Heartsâ to be âa little bit hip-hop, a little bit disco, a little bit dark-synched club music.â

Gym Class Heroes â who recently performed âStereo Heartsâ with Levine on NBCâs blockbuster singing competition, The Voice â will herald âTHE PAPERCUT CHRONICLES IIâ with a major North American tour. The dates â which see the band co-headlining alongside The Dirty Heads â kick off on October 12th at Tampa, Floridaâs Jannus Landing and then continue through mid-November (see attached itinerary). The dates follow the bandâs recent stint as one of the top acts headlining Vans Warped Tour â11. Gym Class Heroes were also among the stars performing at the sold-out FBR15 series of multi-artist concerts at New York Cityâs Terminal 5.
