The Chameleons releases new live album via Metropolis Records!

Metropolis Records is thrilled to announce and welcome the legendary post-punk act The Chameleons (UK) to the roster.


Influential act Chameleons (UK) has joined Metropolis Records and announces a new release "Edge Sessions (Live From The Edge), coming out on April 15th. Chameleons (UK) will be touring the United States and Canada in 2022 with The Mission UK and Theatre of Hate.

"Edge Sessions (Live From The Edge)" includes seven classic Chameleons songs performed live in May of 2021 by founding members Mark Burgess and Reg Smithies, joined by more recent members Chris Oliver on guitar, and Stephen Rice on drums. Three additional bonus tracks of ChameleonsVox era live recordings round out this stunning release.

The Chameleons (UK) was formed in Manchester, England, in 1981, with vocalist/bassist Mark Burgess, guitarists Reg Smithies and Dave Fielding, and drummer John Lever (who quickly replaced founding member Brian Schofield). The band released three classic albums: "Script of the Bridge" (1983), "What Does Anything Mean? Basically?" (1985) and "Strange Times" (1986) before breaking up.

Many years later and after working in on their own music projects The Chameleons (UK) reunited in January of 2000 to prepare for three dates in May of that year in England. The acoustic-based "Strip" was self-released by the band as a limited edition release to coincide with these shows. While more European dates were added they played their first American shows in nearly 15 years. The band once again disbanded in 2003. In 2009, Burgess reunited with Lever as ChameleonsVox, performing and touring Chameleons material. 

As things begin to open up and the world finds some sense of a new normal, Chameleons (UK) signs with Metropolis Records announcing the "Edge Sessions (Live From The Edge)" performed live in May of 2021 by founding members Mark Burgess and Reg Smithies, joined by more recent members Chris Oliver on guitar, and Stephen Rice on drums.

"Edge Sessions (Live From The Edge)" will be out on CD, limited 2xLP and digital format on April 15th.
