THE CHASE
Not The F***ing Game Show
Golden Robot Records
Release: 6 May 2022

THE CHASE release new EP ‘Not The F*cking Game Show’, out now on Golden Robot Records.

‘Not the F*cking Game Show’ is a light-hearted title that pokes fun at the band often hearing the words “Oh, like the game show?” after introducing themselves. The EP itself is a 6-track journey through the mind of songwriter/frontman Tyler Heaney. With a touch of social commentary, it combines the band’s experiences as they manoeuvre through the trials and tribulations of life.
  
The EP has already seen the release of two singles in the lead up, ‘I’m The Man’ and ‘Set the World to Rights’ which have established THE CHASE as one of the hottest new acts in the UK.

“If my mind was a TV and you were flicking through the channels, each track on this EP would be a different TV show. From drama to comedy to biopic, it’s an anthology of what it’s like navigating through your 20s” – Tyler
“Not the F*cking Game Show is a snapshot of the band throughout the turbulent ups and downs of the last few years. It’s an insight to us as people and the band’s personality is imprinted on every song from start to finish” – James

About THE CHASE:
Metropolitan and melodic, The Chase’s music is a blend of cultural influences that pays tribute to their council estate roots. In the space of a few short years, the four-piece have amassed a dedicated fanbase that has propelled them into the stratosphere of the UK indie music scene. From debut performances at some of the best UK festivals (Isle of Wight, Y Not, Truck, The Great Escape), to sold out nationwide tours & landing support slots with The Rifles, The Skinner Brothers and The Clause. The lads have been tipped as one of the biggest breakthrough bands on the scene by press, promoters, radio & anyone who see’s them live. 

Formed in their pre-teens, the multi-instrumentalists have a multicultural background that has inspired their sound. Brothers Tyler (songwriter/frontman) & Dion (drums) were born and raised in Nottingham with Nottingham with Scottish and Caribbean heritage. The Chase are a melting pot of the musical genres that the boys were exposed to when growing up. With cousin Luke on the bass and keyboard warrior/co-writer James, the result is a sound that is both uniquely British and undeniably infectious. 

From The Beatles to Oasis & The Specials to Damien Marley, if you listen to the music you will hear the unmistakable impact their upbringing has had on their songwriting and performance. As a frontman Tyler is equal parts rugged, glam and real. By day he is a labourer on a building site, but by night he is on stage in a leopard print shirt bringing out strong Marc Bolan vibes that draw in any audience. He best describes his fashion sense as “Champagne taste with a lemonade budget” – which is the most accurate thing we have ever heard. 
“Our live show is theatrical, full of personality & showmanship, I couldn’t do it any other way. We want to get the crowd involved, we love it when they’re singing the tunes back at us, it’s all part of the experience for us and them.”
