Disclosure , the British duo behind the hit song "Latch," has a lot to celebrate.  Not only are they gracing the cover of the current issue of Billboard, but " Latch ," featuring vocals by Sam Smith , has just gone platinum, with sales of a million copies in the U.S. as certified by the Recording Industry Association of America.

The duo, comprised of brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence , will appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on August 4.  They've also lined up a few U.S. dates, including an August 1 show at Chicago's Aragon Ballroom, an August 6 appearance at Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas, and an appearance August 8 at the Outside Lands festival in San Francisco.

Disclosure is also celebrating the fact that they've racked up one million Facebook fans.  To mark the occasion, they're offering a limited number of free downloads of their remix of the hit song "Frontin'" by Pharrell Williams featuring Jay Z .

Despite the duo's burgeoning fame, they're still relatively anonymous.  "No one recognizes us unless we’re together," Guy tells Billboard, adding, "We’re not born pop stars. We’re not in this for the fame. It’s nice to still be able to go to the pub with friends."
