Metropolis Records recently welcomed the legendary UK post-punk act Chameleons to its label roster.
Long cited as a hugely influential act, having inspired the likes of (The) Verve, Oasis, Interpol, The Killers and Editors, the group was formed in Manchester in 1981 and comprised vocalist/bassist Mark Burgess, guitarists Reg Smithies and Dave Fielding, plus drummer John Lever.
Chameleons have now joined forces with Metropolis Records to release Edge Sessions (Live From The Edge), a collection of seven classic Chameleons songs performed live in May 2021 by founding group members Burgess and Smithies, plus Chris Oliver (guitar) and Stephen Rice (drums). Three additional bonus tracks of ChameleonsVox era live recordings round out this stunning release.
2022 has already seen the group play a well received UK tour, albeit with three shows forcibly postponed due to Covid issues within the band. These have now been rescheduled together and will be performing at Holmfirth Picturedrome on 13th August, the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on 9th December and The Parish in Huddersfield on 16th December 2022.
