He is offering you a download of the first single, “Lies X 3,” so grab it from LyricsBorn.com right now: “Lies X 3″ MP3. While you’re there, check out more of the new album on the ‘LBFM’ media player.

The full-length will be available in August; until then you can get the EP, Opposite of Adults, here.

Chiddy Bang is also extending their US Swelly Life Tour (with Donnis, XV, and Bad Rabbits) through August, so check tour dates on their Myspace.
