Hugely Successful Dutch Band to Make U.S. Debut With Self-Titled EP; Four-Song Collection Highlighted by International Hit Single, "In Your Arms"; Eagerly Awaited U.S. Live Dates Set for This Summer; "CHEF'SPECIAL EP" Arrives at All DSPs Today

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 2, 2015) - Fueled By Ramen/Atlantic Records has announced its signing of Chef'Special. The Netherlands-based band will make its U.S. debut with a self-titled new EP. "CHEF'SPECIAL EP" is available at all DSPs today http://smarturl.it/ChefSpecial.

"CHEF'SPECIAL" showcases the international hit single, "In Your Arms," a 3x platinum certified smash in Chef'Special's native country and a YouTube phenomenon with nearly 2.5 million individual views thus far. In addition to this, the EP's release is celebrated with the unveiling of the companion video for "In Your Arms" http://smarturl.it/Inyourarmsyt.

Recently named 2015's "Best Band" at Dutch Public Broadcasting's NPO 3FM Awards, Chef'Special has fast earned a worldwide fan following with its tasty stew of sound, an adventurous and inventive recipe spiced by equal parts hip-hop, rock, pop, funk, and reggae. The Haarlem-based quintet made an immediate splash with 2011's debut album, "ONE FOR THE MRS." and its NVPI (Dutch Association of Producers and Importers of Image and Sound Carriers) gold certified hit single/video, "Birds" (www.youtube.com/watch?v=032PkXJlsCc).

Recorded in Brooklyn, 2014's much-anticipated follow-up, "PASSING THOUGH," arrived atop of the Dutch "Album Top 100" on its way to NVPI gold certification. In addition to the Top 40 success of "In Your Arms" -- written in memory of lead vocalist Joshua Nolet's late father -- the album also highlighted the gold certified hit single, "On Shoulders," streaming now at www.youtube.com/watch?v=PmQ3QXqxZMw.

Chef'Special has won over countless fans across Europe with its energetic and explosive live show, earning them 2014's NPO 3FM Award for "Best Live Act." The band is currently set for headline appearances at a number of Dutch festivals, to be followed later this summer with a series of hugely anticipated U.S. dates -- for up to the minute news and information, log on to www.chefspecialmusic.com/shows.
