Challenging people's perceptions
They promise to save their craziness and inner demons for the stage as they prepare to play new material in Hull.
The Chapman Family, who hail from Stockton-on-Tees, say they want to emulate the work ethic of the likes of David Bowie.
This year has already been "incredibly busy" for the band and they have finished recording their latest single Adult, which is already available online.
Frontman Kingsley said: "Things have been hectic but that's the way we like it to be.

"In the past when we've had a lot of time between tours or recording I think we've relaxed too much and become a tad lazy.
"However, now I think we realise time is the one thing every single human being on the planet doesn't have on their side, so we're working at a more frenzied pace."
The alternative rock group first formed back in 2006 and the line-up also consists of lead guitarist Pop, guitarist Owen, drummer Scott and bass player Kevin.
Kingsley is also a graduate of fine art and juggles a "proper job" working in a gallery in Middlesbrough with his touring commitments.
He said: "This sounds incredibly glamorous and exciting, but essentially, all I really do is stop people from touching expensive works of art and answering the inevitable 'what's that supposed to be?'
"Some of my favourite conversations in the gallery are with people who come in thinking it's all 'modern rubbish' and I see it as a challenge to listen to them and try to suggest they look at things a different way.
"The band creates a similar challenge when we play gigs as we're not a conventional band in any sense – we want to challenge people's opinions of what to expect from a modern rock band.
"So, convincing people our odd little eccentricities are all part of what makes our band tick is sometimes quite difficult."
As The Chapman Family head out on tour once again, they are animated about playing a batch of new songs for the fans.
They also cannot wait to get to Hull, which they see as a second home and always stop off for chips with spice.
Kingsley said: "In the past couple of years we've never stopped writing new songs, but unfortunately we never really got the chance to get them exactly right and put them into our set.
"The audience can expect volume, intensity, heartbreak, romance and violence.
"We've never been ones to rest on our laurels, so this tour will, hopefully, give us a chance to showcase what we've been up to, and maybe prove we're not the miserable northerners we're often portrayed as by the music press."
