If the press is to be believed, the European experiment is sailing through choppy waters.
Clearly, nobody told The Chap. A pan-continental outfit, the group's forthcoming album 'The Show Must Go is a blistering sideswipe at the austerity era.
New cut 'Jammer' will emerge on July 31st, and it's described by the band as "a diatribe on the absolute certainty that rock music has not and will never ever change the world."
"'Jammer' is a wordless single. It's the sound of despair in the face of awesome idiocy that renders The Chap's usually reliable Swiss Army knife of irony totally worthless."
"In the midst of events that deeply affect their family and friends, The Chap are united in their realisation: you can take Democracy out of Europe, but you can still tour Europe. Fuck you, Europe. We are The Chap, we are Europe."
