The Chapman Family release Virgins

After the huge success of The Chapman Family’s debut single ‘Kids’ earlier in the year, the Teeside quartet are back with a brand spanking new track entitled ‘Virgins’. Recorded with Dan Swift (Art Brut, Kasabian, The Futureheads) this second stand out single is due for release on 19th October through Electric Toaster. 'Kids' received critical acclaim across the board and gained fans at radio in the form of Zane, Lamacq, John Kennedy and a Record Of The Week nod from Chris Martin at NME radio.

Kingsley (vocals / black guitar), Paul (red guitar), Phil (drums) and Pop (bass / distortion). Together they cook up a firestorm of feedback drenched punk with the dynamics of The Sex Pistols, the intensity of The Fall and the discordance of Shellac. Already a misanthropic favourite of tear-stained rockers everywhere, the band’s no-surrender battalion of white noise and dark truth is moving forward and creating an ever-growing army.

2009 has already seen the band open the NME Radar Tour, support Janes Addiction at a very special secret show and tour the UK and Europe as only they know how. If you’ve been unfortunate enough to miss their trademark live shows, then catch them over the next couple of months.
