Michigan-based post-hardcore outfit Chiodos, featuring a recently reunited lineup of Craig Owens (vocals), Bradley Bell (keyboards), Jason Hale (guitar), Pat McManaman (guitar), Matt Goddard (bass) and Derrick Frost (drums), has announced a multitude of summer and fall tour dates and festival performances.
The upcoming shows will be Chiodos' first time performing with this lineup since 2009.
"Everyone seems really excited to be doing this again, which was something I honestly didn't think I would ever say at one point," explains Bell, one of the band's founding members. "Now it just feels right and we're looking forward to playing shows and making more music together.”
Owens agrees, adding, "It's crazy to think that it's been almost three years...and that in less than one month, we'll all be on the same stage together again. Until then, we are all just preparing for whatever may happen next with an optimistic view on it all; Thankful to be playing music we love, with people we respect."
A new teaser video featuring behind-the-scenes footage of their recent rehearsals has also been released today and can be found on youtube.com/chiodos.
Chiodos originally formed in 2001 and went on to later release two full-length records together with this lineup. Their first full-length album, All's Well That End's Well, was released on July 26, 2005, debuting at #3 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart and #164 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. Bone Palace Ballet, the band's follow-up full-length, was released on September 4, 2007 and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Independent, Alternative, Rock and Hard Rock Charts and #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. To date, the two albums combined have sold over 500k units worldwide. The band will be performing songs from both All's Well That End's Well and Bone Palace Ballet at the upcoming shows.
