Formed in 2005 around the talents of Kingsley, Paul, Pop, and Phil Chapman, the Chapman Family play a unique blend of folk-inspired post-punk, new wave, and indie rock that grew out of the band's home in northeast England. The group's first show on May 5, 2006, led to 250 more in the ensuing years, as well as appearances on various compilations and local, national, and international airplay. Known for their visceral live shows (the band's equipment often reduced to rubble by the end of the night), the Chapman Family released their debut single in 2008 on Don't Tell Clare Records. In 2011, following a host of festival appearances, the band released what was their long-awaited debut album. Burn Your Town was released on Electric Toaster and was followed in 2012 by Cruel Britannia, an EP which showed off a more aggressive yet mature sound. ~ James Christopher Monger
