3OH!3 tour dates
The American electronic duo 3OH!3 (a nod to the area code in their native Colorado) has been serving up alt-rock synth beats to audiences around the world since 2004.
Nathaniel Motte got started playing piano and guitar at an early age, and by the time he was 18 he was DJing in Boulder, Colo., where he met singer/songwriter/rapper Sean Foreman. While attending the University of Colorado, they began to write and perform music together. In 2007, 3OH!3 released its self-titled debut album. Spurred on by the success of the single "Electroshock," they signed with Photo Finish Records and went on to achieve mainstream success.
3OH!3's biggest concert
During 3OH!3's "Too Fast for Love" tour, Motte and Foreman played alongside Cobra Starship and I Fight Dragons in 25 cities across the U.S.
Though "Electroshock" was the band's first true success, 3OH!3 had its first big hit with its 2008 album Want. The duo's second studio release, it quickly went gold, reaching No. 44 on the Billboard 200. The success of Want's biggest single, "Don't Trust Me," fueled this meteoric rise, and was a triple-platinum hit by 2011, ending up as a No. 1 hit on U.S. Top 40 radio. It also charted in New Zealand, Australia, Canada, the U.K. and Finland, and its music video earned a nomination for Best New Artist at the 2009 MTV Music Video Awards.
Motte and Foreman wrote an anthem for the Colorado Rockies baseball team, and they've released songs with Kesha, Cobra Starship and Lil Jon.
3OH!3's personal life
As their collegiate background might suggest, both Motte and Foreman are highly educated. Foreman was an English major, and Motte studied biology and eventually moved on to medical school at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.
