Chapter Music is excited to announce a new signing to the label’s celebrated roster – please welcome scratchy Melbourne pop foursome the Stevens. Centred around guitarists Alex MacFarlane and Travis MacDonald, the young band released a 6 song EP in 2012 that was without doubt the catchiest non-Chapter thing we heard all year. Originally on CD-R and cassette, Chapter is now reissuing the self-titled EP as a handsome 7″ vinyl affair, to be released on Friday April 5, 2013.
If you can’t wait that long, the EP is also up now on Bandcamp for a bargain $5, so head over and pick yourself up a copy!
The EP comes in advance of a debut album, now in the process of being completed with ubiquitous rock star Mikey Young (Eddy Current, Total Control) at the helm. The album will follow later this year.
The Stevens’ upcoming shows include a show supporting the Wedding Present on Feb 27 at Northcote Social Club.
