Having completed a triumphant headline run on this summer’s Van’s Warped Tour, Chiodos have entered the recording studio this week to begin work on their forthcoming new album. The band have chosen producer David Bottrill (Tool, Muse, Stone Sour) to helm the new record which will be tracked at Dreamland Studio in Woodstock, NY.
The new Chiodos album will be released in 2014 through a newly created, band label imprint via Razor & Tie.
The new album will feature a re-solidified band line-up comprised of founding members, Bradley Bell (Keyboard / Vocals), Pat Mcmanaman (Guitar), Derrick Frost (Drums), and Matt Goddard (Bass) who reunited with charismatic, founding font man, Craig Owens (Vocals). The album will also serve as an introduction to the band’s newest member Thomas Erak (Guitar / Vocals) formerly from The Fall Of Troy.
Chiodos’ Craig Owens comments, “We’re excited to be working with Dave Bottrill on this new Chiodos record. Some of the records he’s done have influenced the band and helped us define what we’ve become. Muse, Tool, and Silverchair are all at the top of our list, and it’s amazing to be working with someone that’s already been a part of our history, indirectly. So for the next two months, we’ll be hiding out in the woods of upstate NY, in a hollowed out Church turned studio – creating what is to be the next chapter of this crazy Chiodos journey. ”
Chiodos’ Bradley Bell adds, “One of my favorite aspects of being a musician is the experience that comes along with going into the studio. It’s one of those things you can’t really plan for and just have to let the music and relationships take you down their paths organically. To be able to do this with this group of guys is going to be very exciting, and we get the pleasure of working with David Bottrill to top it off, whom I’ve been a fan of for years.”
Chiodos’ Thomas Erak also adds, “I personally am excited to start my journey with the band, in regards to songwriting. This album should give me a new area to peruse in terms of guitar work.”
