Chapter 13 Are Back on Instagram!

chapter 13 back on instagramThat’s right, the Chapter 13 are back on instagram! If you’ve been on their page you’ll have noticed a few weeks ago Chapter 13 changed their handle from @WeAreChapter13 to @Chapter13.

Then recently they deleted most of their posts, only leaving a few. Now they have deleted every single post and video – wishing I had backed up everything.

Their icon on their page has changed to a smiley face, and today they uploaded a short clip, “Hello its nice to meet you”.

It seems like they are rebranding the band. I wonder what this new era of chapter 13 will be like.

New Laptop and Tablet Retro Wallpapers

Chapter 13 Retro WallpaperThere 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.

Free Chapter 13 Phone and Tablet Wallpapers

Jacob Swann Chapter 13 Phone WallpapersGiven a few options for new content on the site, one popular choice was wallpapers. This was asked on an instagram story, if you’re wondering why that sounds different to the poll on this site.

The first set of phone backgrounds/lockscreen wallpapers are up in the ChapterFam page. They are in the right dimensions for a phone or tablet. Wallpapers will get their own page eventually if they are popular with you guys.

Let me know if you like these and would like to see more like this! If you want to see them in different dimensions, for a desktop or laptop background, leave a comment! It is going to sound really cheesy, but this website is for fans so it should be full of the type of content you want to see! That’s why I keep checking what you want.

So far there is one background in this style for each band member. To keep the same vibe they are all photos form the O2 gig last year. I can do a group one in this design, or create a new style if you guys want to see more. Again, let me know if you’d like this design made to fit a different device, I’ll see what I can do. If a few people make that request then I’ll know in future to make them in different shapes and sizes.

I hope you enjoy the new backgrounds. It would be great if you could tag the site in a screenshot on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter if you use them!

West London Studio Rehearsals and Pictures

tom abisgold studio rehearsalThe boys have been rehearsing all week in a West London rehearsal studio. These are the stories they have been posting while rehearsing. The only band members you can see are Jacob and Jake. The top of Jacobs head appears in one photo, and Jake showed part of his arms.

If you are wondering how I know the studio is in West London, the logo was originally in one of their pictures. There is a second photo of jacob behind the stack going around. It is taken from a slightly different angle, but is basically the same picture. I assume it was deleted when they realised it gave away their location. Trust me, you dont see anything different than the top of Jacob’s head, you aren’t missing anything.

After looking up the studio, they only have rehearsal rooms available, so the band aren’t recording here. What are they practising for? Not sure, McFly are going on tour next year but it is a bit early to be getting ready for that if they are supporting.

Since they can’t have any gigs yet with everything going on, maybe they are going to post a video online at some point? We have eben asking for a virtual concert. We’ll have to wait and see unfortunately.

Pictures and video from the studio are below:

Mercy Screen Captures in the Gallery!

Jacob Swann Mercy CoverThe boys posted a cover of Mercy back in 2018. One of the biggest requests on instagram was for more screen captures, so there are some shots from the video in the gallery.

Click the picture to get to the album of shots from Mercy.

Until the boys post what they are currently working on, the site will be updated with some past content that you may not have seen before. There are more photos coming from long before the band even started. Some completely new content on the way too! Don’t worry, it won’t be a website full of old stuff.

There will be  a video premiering tomorrow morning on the Chapter-13.Net Youtube. Subscribe if you want to see videos before they are posted here! If you have never seen this cover of Mercy, watch it here:

Reunited! Chapter 13 Getting Back To Work!

chapter 13 reunited for rehearsalThe band have been teasing a lot about big news coming soon! A few weeks ago Jake and Tom were reunited. Soon after that Noah posted a video of Tom waving goodbye on the train. Son they have definitely been meeting up lately.

Before all of that happened, Jake mentioned on one of his instagram stories that there was going to be exciting news soon but he couldn’t say anything. Today, the Chapter 13 instagram account had a story with a picture of a rehearsal room. Showing a kit with the band logo on the bass drum, so clearly they are rehearsing for something, or maybe recording?

Since large gathering probably won’t be allowed for a while yet, my guess is they are getting ready to release some music. Please let that be it!

Tom has also posted a picture on his instagram story today:

Since nobody in the band plays iano and they clearly have one in that picture, I’m thinking they are definitely recording.

What do you think of Chapter 13 being reunited? Do you think the surprise is new music?

This Morning Pictures in the Gallery

noah keyThere are new pictures of form This Morning in the gallery! This is going back to the plan to make the gallery as complete as possible.

I used to not see the point in posting pics like this, but honestly it really helps for edits. All of the expressions and moments are together in one big album you can flip through. Plus it does get tricky to fill out the site with content when we have so much waiting to do.

The boys have been hinting at some big news coming soon, they’ve been meeting up too… no idea what they are working on yet. Until then, you can pass the time by clicking the photo to see the rest of these captures in the gallery!

Rehearsal Photos – New Pics in the Gallery

chapter 13 band rehearsalChapter 13 won’t have had a rehearsal for a while, but we can still think back on the good times…

There are new (ish) pictures in the gallery. I have a few others to add too, there are still quite a few pictures sitting on my hard drive that need to get on this site.

I may also start posting collections of clips they’ve posted on social media – since not all Castaways will be following them on all their social media.

As usual, if you have any upcoming/completed fan projects that you would like to share here, please do. I think this fandom gives a lot of us opportunities to feel connected, which is so important at the moment!

Click the photo on the left if you want to see the ‘new’ rehearsal pictures. By the way, we have almost hit 15,000 photo views in the gallery!! Thank you so much!!

New Web Design for Chapter-13.net

wordpress theme for chapter 13 fan siteWhen the website first launched the layout way put together quite quickly to get online. So the design was a bit restricted by time and the number of photos available -since there wasn’t a big gallery yet.

After it was picked up by a host, thank you Fan Carpet, it got a new design to go with the new domain. That is the one you’ll probably be most familiar with -the site didn’t have as much traffic before it got set up properly.

I was feeling a little nostalgic and decided to add a page to keep track of the old designs. You notice all of the images have todays latest post in them, I didn’t screenshot them at the time but loaded up the old themes to show what they looked like. So if you are at all curious you can get an idea. I will post these on the instagram account too.

I am happy with how this new one turned out, hope you like it too!

Watch the Full WeAreChapter13 Livestream

wearechapter13 livestreamYesterday the band had a livestream on WeAreChapter13 (instagram). Tom was the host and the other boys joined one at a time. They talked about what they are getting up to at the moment. They are passing the time by playing and listening to music.

Noah has a new practice kit so he doesn’t drive his neighbors crazy. They also played ‘Guess The Song’, Tom was picking the music and you can see his bias for Arctic Monkeys coming through. Tom also asked the we stop sharing videos of his voice crack from the Castaway Tour… um, no promises Tom, sorry.

You don’t need a drawn out description from me though, because welovechapter13.x (instagram again) has uploaded it! I tried uploading a few times and got a series of technical issues, so I am glad somebody managed it 🙂
