The Seven Pages of Chapter II
The Story Of Swiss Rock Band Chapter II

A great book is made up of well written chapters and pages. In this case, Chapter II has seven “pages” that make the perfect “chapter.” However, this is not a book - this is a band. The seven “pages” of this “chapter” are all professional musicians bound together with talent and creativity to form the bookends to the new Swiss rock band, Chapter II.

The story of Chapter II begins with a trip back in time to a rock cover band named Time Bandits. It was in this cover band in 2003 that guitarist and bassist James Ender met drummer Freddy Wiederkehr and sound engineer Peter Krattiger. The experiences these three professionals would share while performing with Time Bandits was vitally important. Ender explains, “The three of us developing our relationships and talents would be integral to the formation of Chapter II later on. Each of us brought something to the table, especially the technical expertise of Peter.”

By 2007, Ender, Wiederkehr and Krattiger had evolved beyond Time Bandits and began to experiment with new styles and compositions. In early 2008, the three took a new direction and a new name; Chapter II. “We thought the name reflected the fact that this would be the second chapter of our careers as professional musicians,” says Ender.
