Maps Tour America
- Words: Fred Miketa
James “Maps” Chapman has made quite a name for himself in the UK. The pop-gaze protégé has already headlined a sold-out show at London’s ICA Theater, performed at the acclaimed Leeds and Reading Festivals, and enlisted Sweden-based artist The Field to remix the second single, “You Don't Know Her Name,” from Maps' debut album We Can Create. Now, Mute’s new one-man army is heading out West.
For one week, Chapman will infect a few select cities (with the first date opening for Blonde Redhead) with his textured guitar-driven anthems. Unlike his album, however, he’ll have some back-up with a full four-piece band. Put on earplugs and a helmet, because space rock is back!
"You Don't Know Her Name" is out July 31 on Mute.
