CHUMPED release “Name That Thing”

1 min read

It seems like Brooklyn’s CHUMPED are anything but that.  This fall they won hearts and fans with the release of their latest EP That’s The Thing Is Like…, which showcases their signature crunchy, melodic bummer-punk.  The band is set to release their debut LPTeenage Retirement on November 18th via Anchorless Records and today NPR Music premiered “Name That Thing” a new track from the upcoming album. Calling it “a catchy-as-hell pop-punk song with a wistful quality befitting a desire to cling desperately to youth. A dynamic vocalist here, guitarist Anika Pyle speeds through the chorus with an audible sigh,” it’s obvious big things lie ahead for the band.

Go here to listen!


Chumped formed in Brooklyn in 2012 and quickly began making a name for themselves in the Brooklyn DIY scene, combining 90s indie with pop punk to create songs that are energetic, reflective and just a bit gritty and sloppy in all the most endearing ways.  Their self-titled 2013 debut EP caught the attention of places such as Noisey, AV Club,Alternative Press and BrooklynVegan who were early to champion the young band and helped contribute to an ever-growing momentum and a busy 2014.  Chumped has announced new tour fall tour dates today, and will also appear at Fest 13 (all tour dates below).  Pre-order for Teenage Retirement is now available online via Anchorless Records.
