Chappaqua Wrestling have announced their debut album Plus Ultra set for release through EMI on 14 April. In addition the band have shared new single ‘Wide Asleep. The band originally formed in Manchester and the four-piece rounded out 2022 with a hugely successful UK headline tour. 2023 looks set to build on this momentum with the announcement of their debut album and another UK tour. The new single ‘Wide Asleep’ puts social media in the firing line, as the band explains:

“’Wide Asleep’ is a complaint to ourselves for being consumed by the echo chamber of social media. Our mobile phones are the portal which lead us to misread and miscommunicate stories and topics, often leaving us more confused than we were in the first place. Wading through muddled points of view, mistargeted ads, senseless airtime of the Royal family, weddings of friends you’d rather forget, addictively numbing reels, leaving us blinded by a little hand-sized screen. It makes us detached and unmoved by anything, all whilst being asleep to the world around us. Hopefully, our preaching will teach us something ourselves as we try to focus on the present.”

Having completely sold out their first UK headline tour last October, Chappaqua Wrestling are also announcing their latest run of dates. Tickets are on sale at 9am GMT on 10 Feb 2023 here.
