Chiodos Press ReleaseWith frontman Craig Owens appearing on the latest cover of Alternative Press--for the second time in less than a year (October 2007, September 2008)--Flint, MIís CHIODOS continue to gain momentum, almost a year after the release of their hugely successful second album BONE PALACE BALLET. Released in September 2007 on indie label Equal Vision Records, the album debuted at #5 on Billboardís Top 200 Album Chart. Critical praise for their compelling post-hardcore music--from outlets, including New York Times, Blender, Billboard, Hollywood Reporter, Revolver, Village Voice and UKís Kerrang! (see quotes below)--has helped bolster sales of the set to over 157,000 copies.

A mainstay on the road, with international appearances spanning clubs, arenas and major rock festivals, CHIODOS has announced their latest tour: a co-headlining fall U.S. trek with Motion City Soundtrack. Set to kick off September 22 in Louisville, KY, the band will bookend the tour with headlining shows across the continental U.S., Alaska and Mexico. Tickets for the tour go on sale to the public Friday, July 25, check www.myspace.com/chiodos for more information.

CHIODOS--OWENS (vocals), BRADLEY BELL (keyboards), PAT McMANAMAN (guitar), MATT GODDARD (bass), JASON HALE (guitar) and DERRICK FROST (drums)--have also announced they will release a special edition of BONE PALACE BALLET due out this fall; the CD will include brand new songs and a 30-minute teaser of their upcoming concert DVD, title TBA, coming in early 2009.

Not to be rude, but how is this going to happen with Craig in his current condition?

There was an article posted about this in the general forum, apparently he'll be ready by then.

I never really got into Chiodos. However, I love Motion City Soundtrack. Hit The Lights is okay. Person L, I've never listened to.

Fucking Motion City Soundtrack.

What ever happened to him?

RCCOLA 07/24/08 12:20 PM

Yeah, seriously how is this going to happen while the lead singer of Chiodos is severely suicidal? Screw touring and supporting the album, this guy needs to get help.
