Alternative Press Spotlights Chamberlain Reunion

huge thanks to the entire Alternative Press staff for their support!

Web exclusive: A conversation with David Moore of Chamberlain

Fate's Got A Driver in 1995 marked a major transitory time for SPLIT LIP, a defining band of the '90s hardcore movement. The band changed their name to CHAMBERLAIN amidst a vocal re-recording of their sophomore full-length and moved from hardcore territory into something characterized far better by melody and restraint. Chamberlain would endure more surprising transformations over the course of the years that followed, but Fate's Got A Driver remains a diamond-in-the-rough album for '90s underground music. This week, Doghouse Records shed deserved spotlight on the album with a vinyl reissue, pressed on colored wax, including a few bonus tracks for good measure. While the band have a spate of reunion shows planned in support of the reissue along with the release of the book Burning Fight: The Nineties Hardcore Revolution In Ethics, Politics, Spirit, And Sound by Brian Peterson. BRIAN SHULTZ recently spoke with Chamberlain frontman DAVID MOORE about the band's history, the reunion and his long-gestating solo record.
