Fall Tour Dates Announced

It might be already late August but Brooklyn’s Chumped released a hell of a contender today for the jam of the summer.  Called (appropriately enough) “Hot 97 Summer Jam“, the track premiered on Stereogum who said “It’s all in the name — this song is an absolute jam.”  The song is off a new EP titled That’s The Thing Is Like, which is set for a digital release on Anchorless Records on September 9th and precedes Chumped’s debut full-length Teenage Retirement that will be released on Anchorless this fall.

The self-described “bummer punk” quartet formed in Brooklyn in 2012 and began making a name for themselves in the Brooklyn DIY scene, combining 90s indie with pop punk to create songs that are energetic, reflective and just a bit gritty and sloppy in all the most endearing ways.  Their self-titled 2013 debut EP caught the attention of places such asNoiseyAV ClubAlternative Press and BrooklynVegan who were early to champion the young band and helped contribute to an ever-growing momentum and a busy 2014.  Chumped announced new tour dates today with PUP and Beach Slang, and will also appear at Riot Fest Chicago and Fest 13 (all tour dates below).
