Hot Chelle Rae announce 2012 tour dates - watch "I Like It Like That" video

Hot Chelle Rae

Riding high with their win as "Sprint Favorite New Artist" at the American Music Awards and the release of their brand new album WHATEVER in stores last week, pop sensation Hot Chelle Rae has just announced their 33 + date 2012 headlining tour kicking off February 10th in Metarie, LA and wrapping May 5th in Atlanta, GA. More dates to be announced soon.

Hot Chelle Rae's brand new album WHATEVER features their two irresistible pop hit singles "Tonight Tonight" and "I Like It Like That" - other album highlights include "Why Don't You Love Me," featuring pop solo artist Demi Lovato, quirky break-up song "Honestly," finger-snapper "Radio" (featuring rising rapper Bei Maejor), be-yourself anthem and tour name "Beautiful Freaks," and the title track, the "three in the air and you just don't care" anthem for the now generation 'Whatever.'

The NY POST calls WHATEVER "effervescent" and USA TODAY describes WHATEVER as an album full of "tight hooks, savvy cameos, and sing-along choruses so insanely catchy...Hot Chelle Rae is riding a great buzz."

Declared "one of the catchiest pop-rock anthems of the summer" by USA Today, the album's first single "Tonight Tonight" crashed into the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in July, shot to No. 1 at Hot AC radio in September, and was certified double-platinum in the U.S and Australia, and platinum in Canada.

The band followed it up with "I Like It Like That," which Entertainment Weekly called "bubbly elasti-funk" and an "official fall-resisting battle cry."

"I Like It Like That," which features hip-hop duo New Boyz, is climbing the Top 40 and Hot AC radio charts, while the song's documentary-style video racked up over 1 million views in its first 3 days on VEVO.
