Kingsley Chapman and The Murder + support
Ulltra Promotions presents
A belter I think you will agree.
Ulltra Promotions are chuffed to bring Kingsley Chapman back to Hull. Now with his new band Kingsley Chapman and the Murder. Supports from Fire (The Unstoppable Force) & The Evil Litter.
Kingsley Chapman creates an “exceptional and individual brand of misery.” (Louderthanwar)
As frontman and creator of northern English artrock band The Chapman Family, Kingsley flirted continuously between success and failure for a number of years before finally calling time on the group in the summer of 2013.
His new band The Murder take their primary references from the mythology of iconic rock and art. They are a dizzying mix of thundering Viking warrior drums, sparkling avant garde pianos, ominous romantic strings and barbed wire guitars all underpinned by a savage croon.
Their debut single “Lovers” was released in July 2015 on the Too Pure label. It was championed by Steve Lamacq on BBC6 where it won Rebel Playlist and has also been played extensively on XFM and Amazing Radio.
