Chamberlain

Chamberlain_photo_klein Indianapolis-reared rock act Chamberlain will on April 26 unveil a single and video for “Some Other Sky,” its first new music in 9 years. The song will also be available on 7-inch vinyl via Germany’s Arctic Rodeo Recordings, backed by a newly recorded acoustic version of the band’s classic “Street Singer.”

“Some Other Sky” is the first offering from Chamberlain’s in-progress new album Red Weather, which is being produced by My Morning Jacket guitarist Carl Broemel. Additional details will be announced soon.

Featuring original members vocalist David Moore, guitarists Adam Rubenstein and Clay Snyder, bassist Curtis Mead and drummer Charlie Walker, Chamberlain will also return to the stage June 2nd for performances in the UK, Belgium and Germany. These will be the band’s first shows in those regions in nearly 22 years.

Chamberlain’s members first played together as teenagers in the seminal Midwestern band Split Lip. With their passionate songs and poetic lyrics, the Doghouse albums For the Love of the Wounded (1993) and Fate’s Got a Driver (1995) helped define the emerging emo-core genre and influenced such future stars as Thursday, the Gaslight Anthem, Taking Back Sunday, Rise Against, New Found Glory and the Get Up Kids.

In 1995, the group changed its name to Chamberlain and introduced a refined, rootsier sound exemplified by The Moon My Saddle. The album was recorded at the famed Echo Park Studios in Bloomington, Ind., and recasts Moore’s insightful narratives against a backdrop of crunchy heartland rock and slow-burning, piano-and-organ-flecked ballads.

Chamberlain disbanded in 2000, with its members moving on to a variety of other musical pursuits in New York, Los Angeles, Nashville and Indianapolis. The group briefly reunited in 2009 to celebrate the hardcore retrospective book Burning Fight, and played a handful of shows with the Gaslight Anthem and Avail’s Tim Barry in 2010. Last year, the band celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Moon My Saddle by performing the album in its entirety at string of U.S. tour dates, culminating in December in Los Angeles.

To celebrate the band’s return to Europe, Arctic Rodeo Recordings will also reissue of the band’s 2010 single “Raise It High.”
