The Chords UK + 16 Guns + The Turning + Andy Bennett (Ocean Colour Scene)
This October, The Chords UK will mark the launch of their new EP with a show here at The Borderline. To celebrate the release, the first 50 people through the door will receive a free copy of the EP.
The Chords UK originated during a tour in Tokyo. As original singer Billy Hassett (now a permanent resident of said city) had been doing his take there on the band’s material with The J- Chords, Chris Pope, chief songwriter and guitarist of the group, ran with it and formed the UK version.
“It’s really our take on the tunes I wrote back then, bringing it all up to date and adding a bunch of new songs into the set.” Chris stated.
“Singing these tunes, really gives me a buzz and having these guys with me tops if all off perfectly. At first we didn’t know what to expect or what type of reaction we were going to get back, but the feedback and comments have been amazing.”
Over the last 18 months The Chords UK have played numerous festivals and gigs home and abroad which has now lead the band to release a debut/follow on EP. This October, the band will head out to London for a show here at The Borderline.
