Chiodos will release their third full-length album, Illuminaudio, on October 5th, 2010. The album will be the debut Chiodos recording for new lead vocalist Brandon Bolmer (formerly of Yesterday’s Rising) and drummer Tanner Wayne (formerly of Underminded and Scary Kids Scaring Kids). Alongside Bolmer and Wayne are established Chiodos members Bradley Bell (keys), Jason Hale (guitar), Pat McManaman (guitar), and Matt Goddard (bass).
With the core composers of the music still at the heart of Chiodos, fans can be reassured that they will hear the sound that they have grown familiar with over the years. Bell explains, “Even if the lineup had stayed the same, I feel that the direction of sound would've turned out similar. We don’t feel like our vision was lost or compromised in any way throughout the writing process.”
With grandiose, haunting melodies and delicate piano-work contrasting intense, bellowing screams and powerful guitar leads, Illuminaudio proves Chiodos to be just as brilliant as ever before. Bell adds, “We put an incredible amount of thought, time, sacrifice, emotion, and stress into the process of making this beautiful monster. I believe all of that will shine through the music as soon as people press play.”
Illuminaudio was written over the course of 15 months and was recorded just outside of New York City at The Machine Shop, with producer Machine [Lamb Of God, Every Time I Die, Cobra Starship].
