Biography

There are 2 bands named ‘Chapters’, the other being known for their [[Hadouken!]] members.

The Chapters have been building to the release of their debut album for some time – since they formed in college. It is the culmination of years of passion and hard work.

It nearly didn’t happen.

In 2008 the band gigged to large crowds nationwide supporting Neil Young, Cathy Davey, Chuck Berry & The Coronas to name but a few. On the back of interest in Looking for Love (the single released in 2007) the band entered into negotiations with a promising new company. The promise was short lived. Demos were recorded, producers contacted and meetings were had. By summer a deal was on the cards. While waiting for things to be ironed out the band decamped to a disused factory, where they renovated a large bright rehearsal space. The core of the album was written, the songs were getting better and better. Confidence was high and everything was looking up. Then in September the bottom fell out.

The banking crisis hit and within a few weeks the label’s backers pulled out and it was dissolved. The band were heartbroken. A year’s planning, writing were dashed in a puff of smoke. Morale was low, coming into December doom and gloom was everywhere you looked. It would have been an easy time to throw in the towel.
