U.K. I’m No Chessman hard rockers are back with “Alive”, a brooding and driving tune. Fuzzy bass and punchy drums fuel this production that reaches the apex during the chorus when guitarist/frontman Michael Rockett belts “still feel alive” with an abundance of power for such an incredibly hard to reach note for most vocalists. I’m No Chessman are a powerful rock group still on their way climbing ranks through other alternative hard rock artists. “Alive” is the closing track on their most recent EP Amateurs which is their first EP release since 2013. Looking forward to what comes next for I’m No Chessman.
I’m No Chessman is an alternative rock band creating original music in Bournemouth, Dorset, UK. Together since 2013, the group wears its modern rock sound well, writing sleek, grooving songs that still pack the needed punch and crunch of proper post rock.
The band was formed by by guitarist/vocalist Michael Rockett and guitarist/pianist Jason Wheeler, who first met in school almost twenty years ago. The lineup has shifted a bit over time but the current roster of Rockett, Wheeler, bassist Aaron Roberts, and drummer Jez Lee is the strongest one yet. 2018 will be a big year for I’m No Chessman, one that should lift the group out of the underground and into the world at large.
The chatter from the UK underground about I’m No Chessman is strong and positive, not surprisingly. The band has both the hooks and power to grab a much larger audience and many insiders expect it to do nothing less. 2018 will be a big year for I’m No Chessman, one that should lift the group out of the underground and into the world at large.
