Caleb Skips Chemistry – Battles Begun

Caleb Skips ChemistryCaleb Skips Chemistry, Newcastle’s highly charged, hard-rocking energetic four-piece, will be releasing their debut EP Battles Begun to steaming audiences up and down the NSW coast-line this Spring/Summer.

After years of relentless gigging and achieving countless milestones along their journey, the band can be incredibly proud of this EP as it firmly establishes them as the premier act within their musical realm.

This brand new release shows the maturity of a band who have grown together for five years, firstly as brothers and secondly as musicians. The Battles Begun EP explores Caleb Skips Chemistry’s artistic vision of exuberant, youthful music with hard hitting lyrical content and themes.

“To be completely honest with you, I wasn’t sure how our fans would react to these songs we were producing.” said Caleb Skips Chemistry drummer Tom Campbell, “They are darker, and more sinister then our early releases … this is a lot to do with our growing as people. As a band we couldn’t stand back and let atrocities happen without stamping our say on these issues!”

Battles Begun, which features 5 tracks ( including a blood-boiling intro), is a vivid exploration of one bands searching for social equality. The issues tackled in this EP range from Paedophilia within fundamentalist church groups to conspiracies within leading government establishments.

Conceived within the bands hometown of Newcastle, Battles Begun is engineered by Gareth Hudson ( Vaudeville, Fictions, Amy Vee) and produced by Caleb Skips Chemistry themselves. “We took full control of our sound, while working with Gareth to achieve maximum results”. The title track ” Battles Begun” was engineered by Terry Latham and produced by Tom Williams ( Room 24, Broadway Mile ) and recorded at Impromptu studios.

With their Battles Begun launch tour virtually underway within weeks, Caleb Skips Chemistry are reeling and ready to get this battle started!
