The Chapman Society should be taken seriously for their ability to craft infectious indie-rock - Frequency Ireland
A promising debut that serves as a tempting trailer for their album due next year.' - Hotpress
Quite an emphatic indie-rock song undershadowed by shimmering guitar feedback and occasional military style drumming - Living Athiest
Following a debut digital single release charting at No.1 on both downloadmusic.ie & outersounds.ie The Chapman Society are about to launch a ferocious assault upon Irelands new music seen with the impending release of their debut ablum the aptly titled Grenade, highly anticipated by all invited to review the debut single.
The Dublin 3 piece Russell Keogh (Voice & feedback), Sean Kavanagh (Voice & Jangles), Ross OConnor (splintered snare skins) completed their first mini tour late last year including packed out shows at the Edinbrugh fringe festival and a triumphant finale in Dublins very own Crawdaddy with vigurous response coupled by over 300 plays a day of Blood red room on their mayspace site.
'Although 'Blood Red Room' is in thral to indie-dom, they add frsh elements to the standard mix, including stirring martial drums and spoken interjections, and still deliver a cool track - Hotpress
For the dawn of this year they have knuckled down in the studio to sharpen and argue each track into a cache of bullets befitting their initial success.
As the bright days of spring spill into the shadow of autum this year The Chapman Society will follow up with a second single, drenched in strings the melodically bursting Normal People will be on general release supported by an announcement of another tour of feedback & sweat soaked live shows plus various media events.
This is a band that may well demand our attention before the year is out - Frequency Irelandhttp://www.myspace.com/chapmansocietyhttp://www.thechapmansociety.com
