Having seen this band support Wire a few months back, I can vouch for all the good things being bandied about Chapel Club. They haven't even delivered a debut album, although it has now been pencilled in for the end of January. Previous singles have all sold well with "O Maybe I" starting to hit a few quid on e-Bay at the moment (if you can find one, that is).
Recent single "All the Eastern Girls" has certainly got all the indie-rock chops required to draw attention, as well as a good old dose of pounding drums and chiming guitars - you can check the extended version out just above this text, it's rather more-ish.
The band has now announced an album-supporting journey next year, beginning with Sheffield on 5th February and followed by Leeds, Nottingham and several others before hitting their hometown on 16th (at Heaven). Tickets are on sale now priced at £8/£10, unless you want Liverpool tickets in which case these will appear on Thursday morning at 9am.
Apart from next year, there is this year to round off and the lads are set to play a free Liverpool concert in line with Liverpool Music Week 2010 and Mojo magazine on 4th November. It's at the city's Mojo venue and follows on from a similar gig by Field Music on the 2nd and Egyptian Hip Hop on 3rd. Whilst the Liverpool Mojo gigs are free, they are still ticketed and the Chapel Club tickets will be available from 9AM tomorrow morning.
