Stranger Danger is a brand new chapter 13 song that you can listen to a clip of right now! This short video was recorded this summer when the band were rehearsing in a studio in west London.
It does seem like they are ramping up to release something, from the sounds of these clips the album will be amazing! It will be sad if their new style and sound means that they will not be releasing recordings of their old songs. Whatever they choose to release, going by this video it will be worth the wait:
Tom released this acoustic original on instagram to mark World Mental Health Day, this is the message he wrote to go with it:
[ say when you’re at your end ]
today marks world mental health day. we all have our own shit to deal with and we all need to know how to find help if we’re struggling. keep talking to each other and know that there is always some one who wants to listen to you
It’s hard to explain why I want to die
How can you say that when you live the perfect life
So don’t say you know just how I feel
I wish I could tell you
Chapter 13 teased a short clip of this song on their instagram account last week and left us hanging. The wait is more or less over, you can listen to a much longer clip right now!
Unfortunately this time they didn’t post the lyrics, so it will take a little bit longer to get them on the site. Here is what we have so far from this clip:
Now I’m walking on my tippie toes,
Thinking everybody knows,
More about myself than I do
Is that true
Am I a bad guy for thinking its cool to keep your bruises on the inside.
There’s girls getting sexually abused
Guys thinking its alright or its cool
Or it doesn’t really matter and its ok
Well guess what, it’s not fucking okay!
Whats wrong? Can’t a man kiss a man, or a girl kiss a girl
Or whichever way around way around they want it to be
But oh no you see
I want to be experimental in the things I try
But you can’t when you’re 16 and you’re a guy
Cos its gay or its weird
putting on my social armor getting ready to be called a queer.
Fantasy can be so much better than reality
No wait, sorry, fuck that
It is better than reality
You deserve what’s going on
You should be loved by someone
Distraction wallpapers are now on the Chapterfam page of the site.
There are a few colours and versions so click the picture to see the others. I will be adding more wallpapers and backgrounds soon. If you have any opinions or ideas now is the time to shout so that you can get them included in the next set!
What do you think of these Distraction wallpapers?
There will be more pictures coming to the gallery too. Now that the band are releasing clips of their music it has been great to see the fandom getting more active again!
Social Suicide At Home: Tom’s message to Chapter 13 fans. He explains why the band was so inactive during lockdown. This was part of the writing process for their upcoming album, it sounds like they are aiming to be very raw and authentic.
The drawing on the left if what Tom posted with the message, click it to see it full sized.
firstly thanks for all the support on the new content and glad you love it as much as we do. we came offline to try not to conform to what everyone else is doing particularly during lockdown and present ourselves in a way that was untrue. i wanted to write songs that represent who I am for all that is good and the shit that comes with it. what I found was that when I wrote what was real and personal, my band connected with it more and the acceptance of who I am inspired more music and brought us together. hopefully you connect with it in the same way we do
love u all
Chapter 13 have been droppping some hints about Distraction, and it is finally here! They have released this clip of them rehearsing the song, with the studio audio over the top. Click the photo to get the lyrics for Distraction.
The caption to this video finally tells us what we have been waiting to hear, there is an album coming:
a clip of us playing one of the new songs written over the past few months. It may or may not be on the album…
Another compilation is now on YouTube! You can watch every Chapter 13 instagram story from August 2020!
It includes Jodie’s video that she posted of Tom the other day.
These will keep being posted if people find them helpful. It isn’t always possible to catch every story since they are only up for 24 hours. If you’re busy, not on insta, or your phone dies you could miss it.
There will be more content added to the website soon. Until then, please enjoy this video:
There are new retro wallpapers on the ChapterFam page. One design is for laptop/desktop and the other is the right ratio for phone/tablet.
You might recognise the style, they are based on retro kids books form the UK. My favourite is probably the cover for the fake book: Chapter 13 and the Bakugan Club.
If you like these and want to see more add a wallpaper you’re using to your story on Facebook or Instagram and tag us! If you don’t use socials you can always leave a comment 🙂
The last compilation of all of the boys stories for July was quite popular, so there may be a follow up coming in the next week. Let us know if that is something you want to keep seeing on this site.
Until the boys reveal whatever it is that they are working on currently, we will need to keep finding things to post on here. Suggestions are always welcome. You can always get in touch with the contact form.
