Teesside based four piece The Chapman Family seem to be blazing a trail of brilliant destruction all across the music world at the moment.
The band, who played in 2007 as part of Generator’s ‘In The City’ event in Manchester recently completed the Samsung NME Radar tour across the UK alongside Magistrates, Heartbreak and electro pop sensation La Roux, rounding their tour off with a triumphant performance at Newcastle’s Evolution festival in which deranged frontman Kingsley incited the audience to throw coins at them.
The Chapman Family have gained a lot of positive reviews for their incendiary and confrontational live shows, with many comparing them to acts such as Sonic Youth, Joy Division and Maximo Park. They were selected to play on the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury Festival in 2008 and seemingly haven’t stopped touring since.
The band, although currently unsigned for records and unpublished are represented by Paul Bolton at Helter Skelter for live shows and Bad Moon take care of their national press.
