The Chameleons Drop "Where Are You" Music Video

Manchester post punk legends The Chameleons have dropped the video for their newest single “Where Are You“.

The track, their first new material in more than twenty years, features on their new 3-song EP WHERE ARE YOU?, released last Friday, May 24 via Metropolis Records. Buy it here.

The EP serves as a teaser for the upcoming album ‘Arctic Moon’, planned for late 2024.

An artful combination that embraces their past work while opening their arms to creative expansion, ‘Where Are You?’ slots neatly into the band’s oeuvre. Led with an arresting trademark guitar hook, Burgess’ familiar and immediately recognisable vocals soar effortlessly over the tight precision of the rhythm section.

“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 frontman 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. “

“By the time we’d got through Covid, Reg and I had a very solid band in place, people whose talent we trusted to bring out the best in whatever ideas we were able to get off the ground. For the first time in years, I felt we were a proper band capable of creating some interesting and exciting music. We’ve managed to transcend the confines of our own legacy and finally forge something fresh, “ adds Burgess.
