The Stevens + Primitive Calculators album launches

2013 was a huge year for Chapter Music, our most ginormous ever, and we finished with a bang in the form of our artists totally dominating the end of year best-of lists like bosses.

The Ancients, Beaches, Bushwalking, the Cannanes, Darren Sylvester, Dick Diver, Pikelet, Primitive Calculators, Standish/Carlyon and the Stevens all found their way into lists as far and wide as the Guardian, Mess+Noise, Pitchfork, All Music, Fasterlouder, the Vine and the Matador Records staff blog.

But there are still two Chapter bands who haven’t finished launching their awesome 2013 albums! The Stevens and Primitive Calculators both head to Sydney next week, playing separate launch nights at Marrickville’s Red Rattler.

The Stevens then take their debut album A History Of Hygiene to Brisbane for two shows, while Primitive Calculators pay their first visit to Hobart in early February, launching their long-awaited studio debut The World Is Fucked.

Supports for all these shows are now finalised too!
