Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! share song success secret

Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! reckon sharing writing responsibilities on their latest album has made them a better band.

The Corey Taylor-approved French outfit worked with a number of producers while working on third album Get Lost Find Yourself, which was released in May via Fearless Records.

Frontman Bertrand Poncet tells TeamRock Radio: “On this record we tried different and new things. We co-wrote some songs with different producers from America. We got lost in the process and found ourselves better in the end.

“Before this one we did everything ourselves – we wrote our own songs and this time we said, ‘Let’s try something else.’”

He continues: “I’ve heard that for a lot of bands it doesn’t work. But we are very open-minded. We took their best ideas and put in our own ideas and it’s mix of good stuff. I’m very happy with how it sounds.”

And on whether co-writing with people outside the band is frowned upon within the rock scene, Poncet adds: “I feel that working with other people isn’t cheating. You need more people. It’s just making things work.”

CNCC played the Maverick Stage at Download today (June 13).
