Followingthe excitement among fans and the media after they premiered three new songs at festival shows this summer, Chapel Club will close the campaign for their thrilling debut album ‘Palace’ with a final UK tour featuring tracks from the record – plus an exclusive extra set each evening previewing never-before-heard songs from their forthcoming second album.
Having spoken often about their desire to reinvent their sound for the follow-up to ‘Palace’, with frontman Lewis Bowman explaining that “We all have a lot of love for the songs [on Palace] and we love that so many people have taken them to their hearts. But when we wrote them we were still learning how to write songs together. Now we have a bit more experience, we’re better able to explore the possibilities. Everything feels freer and fresher and more relaxed and more exciting; hopefully the new songs reflect that.”
The run of shows in October will see the band perform twice each night: playing a main set every night featuring songs from ‘Palace’ and 2010’s superb ‘Wintering EP’, plus an earlier, special set made up of entirely new material – with the tour culminating in the band’s biggest headline show to date, a homecoming special at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
