A powerful and captivating listen, Ink follows the band’s previous singles A Devil In Blue and Magazines.
“Ink is about feeling disillusioned with adulthood and the dangers that lie in obsessing over self-improvement,” says frontman Josh Carter. “The song is unlike anything we’ve done before and we’ve been really embracing the evolution of what we do. Chapter and Verse has become a vessel for us to properly embrace life and for us this song serves as a reminder that focusing only on how to be happy can actually give you the opposite outcome.”
“It’s been in our live set for a long time now,” Carter continues.”We’re at the stage where people at our shows are singing the words back to us without having ever heard the studio recording. It’s been a long time coming and we’re so excited to finally get it out there.”
Having released two songs in two years, this band’s abilities are far from being fully understood. Magazines is an honest reflection on the emotional aftermath of the near-loss of a friend and A Devil in Blue is an open apology to a loved one, but it’s their new single ‘Ink’ that now has everybody talking.
To celebrate the release of Ink, Chapter and Verse will play a sold-out headline show at The Black Heart in Camden, London, where they will be joined by Bellevue Days and Luke Rainsford.
Full Chapter and Verse live dates:
18 October – London, The Black Heart (sold out – headline single release show)
25 October – Tunbridge Wells, The Forum (w/ Mallory Knox)
