We got a teaser of this months ago, and finally we get to hear a bit more. If any of the lyrics below are off, leave a comment. Not sure what this song is called, Distraction?
Hello it’s nice to meet you, well, not really, no.
Cos everybody’s showing up *
Do you know somewhere we can go?
I’m getting no ideas
They got them force feeding the lazy generation reasons to believe
we wanna get away, get away
from all of what we have become
Hold on it’s a momentary action
All the kids on the street making reaction
Sorry don’t mean to be a distraction
What’s the plan of action?
It is Tom versus Jacob in part two of the Cook Off. No prizes for guessing that Jacob’s entry includes jasmine rice!
He is making a Teriyaki chicken dish, and Tom decides on a stir fry with egg fried rice. Worryingly enough, Jacob admits he has no idea how to cook chicken or what overcooked/undercooked means. Who do you think will be the victor?
The long awaited Chaptercast 2 has arrived! As you can see the video is titled ‘chaptercast #2 – the one about noah’s sex life’.
You can get to be a part of the next Chaptercast if you send them in a story on instagram. Direct message @Chapter13 on instagram with your funniest story about yourself and they might read it out in the next video.
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
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.
