Chronic Chaos Celebrates
CD Release Saturday
by Bryan Nelson
Chaos, the Grant county based Melodic-Punk/Hardcore band, has been gaining
alot of ground in the central Indiana underground scene as of late. This past
year they have had the oppurtunity to share the stage with such Indie-Powerhouse's
as Agnostic Front, Sloppy Seconds, The Suicide Machines, Bigwig, Mustard Plug,
The Gadjits, The Casualties, and Rise Against. By supporting these acts and by
their constant touring schedule, Chronic Chaos, has started quite a buzz in and
around the Hoosier state.
Chronic Chaos consists of
Chris Swinney(Guitar), Aaron Glass(Vocals & Guitar), Troy Losure(Vocals &
Bass), and Jason Losure(Drums). Although their sound has been described as "too
punk for the metal kids" and "too metal for the punk kids",
Chronic Chaos seem to have found a place with both groups. With influences as
diverse as Thrice, Metallica, Iron Maden, Poison The Well, Tourniquet, Good Riddance,
and Bad Religion...Chronic Chaos combine many styles of Punk, Metal, and Hardcore
to create a sound that is all their own.
In May 2001 Chronic Chaos
self released their debut Full Length CD, Despite The Consequences. "DTC"
was recorded in Chicago, IL at Bombshelter Studios by Mr. Dan Precision of 88
Fingers Louie/Rise Against fame. The cd garnered rave reviews from Maximum
Rock ' N ' Roll, Superpunk.com, and many national zines. "Despite The
consequences" has since sold out of its initial 1000 unit pressing, after
two US tours and numerous local and regional shows.
In May 2002 Chronic Chaos
ventured back to Chicago to begin recording there new CD entitled, Wait To
Watch Me Burn. Over three months of recording, mixing, and mastering later....Chronic
Chaos have produced their best representation to date. The first MP3 single, "Climb
To The Top", has been floating around the top 10 in the MP3.com Punk/Hardcore
charts since July. Go check it out @ http://www.mp3.com/chronicchaos
Chronic Chaos plans on releasing
Wait To Watch Me Burn near the end of October, followed up immeadiately
with a full US Tour.
