CHANT â€“ the tribal-infused apocalyptic drum project created by Bradley Bills from Austin, TX â€“ spent the last decade solidifying its mark in the Industrial Rock world with a constant US tour schedule supporting everyone from Pigface to Combichrist, Psychic TV to Orgy, and landing tours with My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult & Lords of Acid.
CHANT gained an international audience following 2013 dual US tours with KMFDM and a 2014 European tour with Die Krupps (for which Bradley also served as drummer for the headlining Krupps) and the momentum has led to a partnership with WTII Records for distribution (Nail â€“ US / Planetworks â€“ EU/UK) to release CHANTâ€™s eagerly anticipated 3rd album, as well as an unprecedented, never before occurrence of being invited by KMFDM for a 3rd tour this summer on the 2015 KMFDM/CHANT Salvation Tour.
The new album, titled â€˜Brave New Apocalypseâ€™, set for release on July 18th, is described as having CHANTâ€™s signature tribal driven sound, immersed within a modern take on classic industrial - full of punk rock DIY venom, grinding guitar blasts, haunting noise loops â€“ with an added mixing assault from the Ultra Heavy Beat creator Sascha Konietzko (KMFDM).
Adding fuel to the fire, CHANT will make their UK debut at this summerâ€™s Infest UK Festival alongside acts such as Project Pitchfork, Mind In A Box & Cocksure.
CHANTâ€™s high energy, live show won critical acclaim with Industrial & Rock Publications as a show â€˜simply not to be missedâ€™ by ReGen Magazine and â€˜2013 Live Show of the yearâ€™ by Coma Music Magazine. The unique tribal drumming echoes STOMP/Street Drum Corps and blends a NIN/Nitzer Ebb spirit if classic Industrial Rock. CHANT is regarded as highly original, both in and outside of the Industrial genre, completely honest and 100% passionate, leaving audiences elated after seeing them live.
Since inception, Bradleyâ€™s subversive DYI style of art and mixed media continues to provoke thought and turns heads: CHANTâ€™s controversial music video NEED triggering censorship by Youtube.com and other media outlets in 2012 and the 2011 video â€˜Revoltâ€™ has become a fan anthem â€“ commenting on the NWO and NSA overreach that this new generation now speaks out against. Fans enjoy a close relationship with the entire band and each show brings on a new member of CHANTâ€™s Revolution Army.
CHANT enters this summer 2015 with a new album, a full US tour, UK festival shows â€“ and a recharged, ramped up live show like never before! Brave New Apocalypse is not stating the end of the world is imminent by any means. For CHANT - itâ€™s just beginning.
