Chapterhouse play for first time in a decade

Band reunite on Sonic Cathedral stage at Truck Festival

Former NME cover stars Chapterhouse played live for the first time in more than a decade at the weekend (July 20).

Three members of the band – singer/guitarists Andrew Sheriff and Stephen Patman, plus guitarist Simon Rowe – joined forces with German electronica star Ulrich Schnauss for a version of their 1993 track ‘Love Forever’.

The seminal shoegazers made the surprise appearance to close the Sonic Cathedral stage at this year’s Truck Festival in Oxfordshire, following headliners Maps, who ended their set with a cover version of Ride‘s 1992 hit ‘Leave Them All Behind’, also featuring Schnauss and Henrique Laurindo from The Tamborines.


It is not known if Chapterhouse have any further live plans, but their second and final album, 1993’s ‘Blood Music’, was recently reissued with extra tracks.
