Artist Profile »

**THE GREATEST BAND YOU'VE NEVER HEARD OF COME TO FANDANGO!** **THEY'RE CALLED THE CHEVIN!!** **AND WE'VE GOT THEM ON NOT ONCE, NOT TWICE, BUT FOUR TIMES!!!**

Epic Yorkshire-based combo THE CHEVIN are playing a four week residency at the Bull & Gate in October. The mysterious quartet, whose heroic demos have drawn comparisons with Muse, The Killers, Coldplay, U2 and Snow Patrol throughout the summer, will be appearing on every Thursday throughout October, taking in appearances alongside wegottickets (6th), Amazing Radio (13th), Steve Lamacq's Going Deaf For A Living (20th) and fierce panda's Club Bambooooozled (27th).

The latter is no coincidence, as fierce panda will be releasing THE CHEVIN's 'Champion' EP on October 31st.

The Band: THE CHEVIN

The Release: THE 'CHAMPION' EP

The Format: COMPACT DISC & DOWNLOAD

The Label: fierce panda (The Catalogue Number: NING 239CD)

The Truth: THE CHEVIN are four young men from Otley, West Yorkshire. They consist of Coyle Girelli (vocals), Mat Steel (guitar), Jon Langford (bass) and Mal Taylor (drums). THE CHEVIN is pronounced The Shev-In'. Fans of the West Yorkshire tourist board are already sure to know that The Chevin is also name of the hill which surrounds the bands hometown.

And home is very much where the heart is for THE CHEVIN: Coyle, Steel and Langford started playing music together while attending Prince Henry's Grammar School in Otley and bands line-up was ultimately completed when they later enlisted the services of Taylor, another old school friend. And now they are called THE CHEVIN. And they are about to shake the alt.rock world to its floundering foundations.

The 'Champion' EP is THE CHEVINs first ever release. It features a song called 'Champion' which is insanely epic, manically widescreen, heroically uplifting and destined to soundtrack Goal Of The Month montages, X Factor breakdowns and all manner of valedictory celebrations for years to come.
