Paris, France pop-punk outfit Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! have released their new single “Taking Chances” today on iTunes. The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album Pardon My French, set for release April 30th.
“This song is one of my personal favorites and I can’t wait for people to hear it because it brings a different vibe to the album,” notes lead singer Bertrand Poncet. “We tried new things while writing this song, it’s lighter and more melodic but still very catchy. Also, the lyrics have a positive message about seizing life’s opportunities which matches with the band’s state of mind.”
Fresh off their routing with A Day to Remember, C!NCC’s fans can expect to hear the band play “Taking Chances” currently on their headline tour with label mates For All Those Sleeping, Upon This Dawning, and friends City Lights. After spending all of 2011 and 2012 on tour, stagebombing the U.S. and commandeering a slot on the entire 2012 Vans Warped Tour, an honor reserved for a select set of bands, C!NCC are ready to take it to the next level.
