Flying the banner for the Leeds DIY / Art scene, Chest Pains don’t hang about in asserting their dominance and having you completely emmersed into their belting tunage. No requirments here, forget a newsletter or badge to join their club, just a submission to their throbbing over-driven anarcho punk.

Their debut track ‘Petrified’ is true Post-Punk wizardry, one for the Holograms, Protomartyr, Thee Oh Sees crew. Not only a huge tune, but an insight into what we can expect from this lot as they raise the roof on venues countrywide.

Fearless in their creativity and telling it as it is, Sammy, and fellow young guns Cal Crombie (Lead Guitar and Backing Vocals), Sam Robinson (Bass), and Calum Coleman (Drums ) breathe and quite literally, live music. Meeting in the city’s well-worn edges at CHUNK – a former warehouse, now not-for-profit music-arts space run by a collective of creatives – the band rehearse in the place which first brought them together. In fact, when not playing or performing themselves, they can often be spotted among the crowd at the venue’s many shows.
