Chameleons Vox expand winter 2013 UK and Ireland tour
Manchester new-wave icons prepare for Eden and the End of the World, tickets on sale now
However you write down their name, be it The Chameleons, Chameleons UK or, the latest incarnation, Chameleons Vox, one thing remains the same - the music. Only the name changes, rather aptly. By turns melodic, ferocious, sparkling, gritty and confident, the band's revered guitar-powered output almost matches its global following's partisan reaction to their blistering live shows, unmatched for some thirty years.
Original frontman Mark Burgess and drummer John Lever are currently preparing to release album number seven (not counting the sea of compilations and rarity collections doing the rounds). Entitled (for now) "Eden and the End of the World", the album continues on from where previous landmarks, such as "Script of the Bridge", "Strange Times" and "Why Call It Anything?", have left off.
As a rule of thumb, huge chiming guitars and that big Burgess bellow fuse to create a charged yet sensitive melancholia, blessed with hope and blissed with atmospheric arrangements. You can expect this and more when they tour later this year in support of the new material and a few classics thrown in.
Cork and Dublin are the first stops on 29th and 30th November, before the band head east for Nottingham, Bristol (new dates), Islington and finally, further into December for typical annual home-town festivities, Manchester on 21st December.
Tickets are on sale now, priced at £14 (£17.50 for London) - you won't regret it.
