Chappaqua Wrestling share grunge-y new number ‘The Rift’

Chappaqua Wrestling have shared a brand new track in ‘The Rift’

Heavier and denser than anything we've heard from the band so far, it’s packed with swagger and gripping breakdowns - peppered with that unmistakable melodic heart. We like it indeed

Speaking about the track, Charlie Woods from the band explains: "The Rift’ is a track about conflict, acknowledging the increasing divisions within society, and calling out those that turn the blind eye. Events from the last year have got to a global boiling point and creatively this has taken us to the same place. It’s the most powerful track we’ve released so far, and it amplifies our perception on how the last year or so has felt. Lyrically it’s influence comes from the poem written shortly after the Peterloo massacre in Manchester; ‘The Masque of Anarchy’ by Percy Bysshe Shelley. It’s an old talisman for suppressed voices in this country, and some of its verses still clearly resonate today.”

It’s the latest track to be revealed by Chappaqua Wrestling, following on from ‘Football’ - unveiled earlier in the year
