British Heavy Rock Duo, Chapter Nineteen will be returning with their debut EP, ‘A Story Well Told’ on Friday 23rd April 2021.
The duo, featuring members Dave Musson & Chris Piper, formed in 2019 when Dave’s band WAVES disbanded when creating new music, this left Dave in need of a drummer, at the time Chris was producing WAVE’s new music but it also turns out he is also a talented drummer. After releasing multiple singles in 2019 & 2020 under a new name ‘Chapter Nineteen’, the duo are back to show us what they’ve been working on throughout 2020.
Dave Musson remarks about the new EP ‘A Story Well Told’:
“This is effectively a concept EP – with one thread throughout. It tells the story of a band who tried their very best to make it, but who, despite having great potential, failed to break out. Ultimately, it’s a story about how being unique and different—which is something every band strives for—doesn’t always go well.”
– Dave Musson
In preparation for the release of the new EP, Chapter Nineteen released a new single ‘How Is There Hope’ which features Josh Redrup from the Punk group ‘Palm Reader’ who are known for tracks such as ‘Noble Host’ in 2013 and more recently ‘A Bird And Its Feathers’ being released in 2020.
If we did not read about what Dave Musson had to say, talking about how the new EP is a concept album about a band with potential, who tried to be unique & different and that it doesn’t all go well, we’d of thought the new single wasn’t quite up to scratch.
We listened to the new single ‘How Is There Hope’ before reading what Dave said, and we initially said that the band has huge potential to be something truly impressive, but have a lot more work to put in. However, when reading Daves statement it all made sense, what the duo have one is very creative & quite smart as it does initially engage people and get them thinking. Unfortunately, I think you would have to put his statement alongside the single to help people understand what it’s all about. Otherwise they may lose interest.
Overall, Chapter Nineteen are creative and are striving to be something different. Although, even when listening to previous tracks we do believe there is a lot more work to be done, but we think they’ll pull something impressive out of the hat, if not this year, then next.
