The LA-based siblings have just been named an official VH1 "You Oughta Know" Artist for October, becoming part of a highly acclaimed franchise that has helped break artists such as Ed Sheeran, Adele, Lorde and Sam Smith. There will be a brand new video for "Cool Kids" premiering on MTV tomorrow, all a continuation of the band's rising success from the past few months.

The single is now certified Gold and has more than 7.5 million views on YouTube, in addition to maintaining the No. 1 spot on the iTunes Alternative chart and rapidly climbing the Top 40, currently at No. 26 on the Billboard Hot 100. "Cool Kids" was used in Apple's recent keynote speech to highlight its new Apple Watch.

Echosmith recently announced an extensive fall tour, which will take them on the road with American Authors for three weeks as part of the Honda Civic Tour, for eight dates with Neon Trees, and for their own headlining tour throughout November, with stops in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and more.
