February 28th 2011 sees the release of 'Anxiety' the second single from The Chapman Family's debut album Burn Your Town. Produced with Richard Jackson known for his work on Future Of The Left's albums and The Automatic's debut 'Not Accepted Anywhere' they approached him because, in front man Kingsley's own words; "We could have done ten tracks of angry noisy smashy guitars, but that's a bit one dimensional. We've tried to do an album in cinemascope, Avatar, 3D style. It's like an alternative version of Pet Sounds."
The Chapman Family were actually part of the 2009 NME Radar tour but the band decided it was best to spend time writing and recording their album rather than push it out quickly and "hope for the best". Burn Your Town is set for release on March 7th 2011 through PIAS/Electric Toaster.
