London based band, Chasing Deer, with a surging social media following, are joining the movement with their new project and album, ‘Hands On’. Chasing Deer are holding a special album launch show, November 22 at London’s Bush Hall, aimed at a completely inclusive audience of both hearing and deaf people.
The sound system is set up so that the deaf audience can ‘feel’ the vibrations of the music while lyrics and speech are also interpreted on stage for all the bands and signers will also welcome people at the door, on the merch table, at the bar and throughout the venue, all of which has never been done for an unsigned bands show before!
