The Chapman Family are a group joined not by blood but passion. Following the stress of line-up changes and false starts the North East 5 piece have a new found focus ahead of their UK tour this February.
Expect to be entertained by ominous basslines, soaring guitars, primal drums and brooding vocals as the tour showcases ambitious slow burners, hook drenched guitar pop and 3 minute post-punk assaults as part of the band’s arsenal.
Hotly tipped for 2013 and back with a dogged determination to break the mould, The Chapman Family couldn’t have made a more timely return to reinvigorate a sluggish guitar scene. Their stage shows renowned, the band boast a formidable live presence with a surging, brutal energy. Years of honed live talent fuses with intense unbridled force, backed not by tired posturing or half cut sentiment, but real guts and steely resolve.
The Chapman Family UK tour will be accompanied by a free download of Adult (available from the band’s Facebook page), as the first single from their new album, to follow in the Autumn.
