Manchester post-punk legends THE CHAMELEONS have announced a new EP as a taster for their forthcoming album.

Where Are You? is a brand new 3-track EP which also features the tracks 'Endlessly Falling’ and ‘Forever’, and is set for release on 24 May through Metropolis Records in conjunction with Strange Times Entertainment.

“It’s exciting to finally be putting out fresh Chameleons material for the first time in over twenty years, although initially I found it quite daunting,” says founding singer/bassist Mark Burgess. "The question about new music is one I had been asked the most by people coming to our gigs, many of whom weren’t even born when our previous records were made, but were excited and inspired by the music enough to catch us on various tours.”

The EP comes ahead of Arctic Moon, a brand new Chameleons longplayer, which is slated for release later this year. “We’re halfway through it at the moment, but everyone in the band is excited by what they’re hearing,” continues Burgess. “We’ve managed to transcend the confines of our own legacy and finally forge something fresh. It’s undoubtedly The Chameleons to everyone that has heard the direction the band is now heading in.”

Where Are You? is available to pre-save here.

The band will be embarking on a series of dates which will take them through 'til the end of the year. Catch them at...
