The Chevin are excited to announce the release of their debut album titled Borderland. Released today via So Recordings, Borderland, an album described by RCRD LBL as “a collection of stylish, glittering rock numbers” follows the band’s successful Fierce Panda EP, which gained the band plenty of exposure through European tours supporting Franz Ferdinand, White Lies, The Airborne Toxic Event, airplay on XFM London and Radio 1 as well as being featured on BBC1, ESPN, and over 75 football and rugby stadiums across the world.
The album’s lead single, “Champion,” a song the band recently performed on The Late Show With David Letterman and that is now being featured on EA’s FIFA 2013, has also been named the iTunes “Single of the Week.” “Champion” is Borderland’s stadium-ready anthem from the Yorkshire, England band who will be performing on Conan this Thursday, September 27.
In addition to the release of the album, The Chevin; Coyle Girelli (lead vocals), Mat Steele
(guitar, vocals), Jon Langford (bass) and Mal Taylor (drums) will be touring supporting The Psychedelic Furs beginning on Tuesday, October 2 in San Francisco, CA. The tour will take in 16 evenings and culminate in a performance at the Granada Theater in Dallas, TX, on Sunday, November 4. Recently, the band has had the pleasure of performing as part of major festivals including T in the Park, Great Escape, Camden Crawl and Live at Leeds.
