Chamberlain's Moore Due to Release Debut


David Moore, formerly of indie rock outfit Chamberlain and hardcore punk band Split Lip, is set to release his debut LP, My Lover, My Stranger, on June 23rd. Unfamiliar with Moore or his former bands? This isn’t necessarily surprising, but without Moore’s influence the post hardcore sound would never have fully developed… I recommend starting with Split Lip’s 1995 LP, Songs You May or May Not Have Heard Before: Archived Music for Stubborn People.

But what about this solo project? Here’s what the press release said of Moore’s new sound:

Under Webster’s direction My Lover, My Stranger was completed in 2008. It is a lush musical departure for Moore, and its songs are filled with optimism and rejuvenation. From the opening anthem “Breaking You Down,” to the spiritually infused war cry “Jericho,” to the rhythmically rich love song “Corners,” My Lover, My Stranger seldom lets up. Moore’s vocals sound weathered and wise throughout, and the music takes on more melodic chances than ever before in his career. Due out this year, David Moore is sure to open some ears, and some eyes as well.

PS. Keep an eye out for the Chamberlain reunion coming through a town near you.

  1. Hello!

    I wanted to write and tell you about a new website for artists, musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers: I’ve been using the site as an artist and have my work there, and am trying to support it because I believe in it. Basically, the site allows artists from all over the world to connect, display their portfolios, and sell their work (with NO commission taken!). The site gives artists a FREE gigabyte of space to showcase their portfolios, allows you to stream audio and video works, lets you create live personal broadcasts, and translates any writing into ten different languages. If you could take the time to visit the site, and if you like it too, let your readers know about it, and even sign up yourself or link to it on your site it would be greatly appreciated! We are trying to make a go of helping out artists everywhere and are trying to get the word out, so please help us out if you like the site after checking it out! Thank you!

    All the best,
    Sarah at

  2. […] of seminal emo-core outfit, Split Lip, continues to morph his voice into something different. Due out on June 23, Moore’s debut full length is just one of several musical ventures he’s currently involved in. […]

  3. For the record, “Home to Me” is about a father and a son, not a romance. It is one of the best tracks on the album, for sure though. Cheers.

  4. Goyo, thanks for the info… If it’s about a father and son (as I can admit I previously did not realize) than I guess it IS a love song… right?

    Ok I tried… thanks for checking out the site, come back soon!
