Single: Broken Jaws
Released: 5th May 2014
Label: Trash Unreal Management
On 5th May Chasing Dragons return with their new single ‘Broken Jaws’. Charging in like a raging typhoon, the female-fronted Leeds based metallers channel infectious mountainous riffs, an earth shaking rhythm section with Laurie ‘Tank’ Carnan’s vocals powerfully exclaiming “We’ll shout our war cry to the hordes, we’re starting fires and ending fights and breaking jaws, not ashamed of who we are” over a juggernaut of explosive hard rock .
‘Broken Jaws’ is a call to arms, standing side by side, fight for what you believe in and with the razor-sharp guitar lines of Mitch Sadler tearing through the song like a man possessed, the meaty bass lines of Ant Varenne alongside the apocalyptic drumming of Katie Bullock adding some muscle creating a beast of a return
You can hear it here:
This will be followed by their new record ‘Checkmate’ which will be released on 2nd June via Trash Unreal Management. Produced, mixed and mastered by Lee Batiuk (Deaf Havana); it’s a sprawling beast that incorporates frenetic post-hardcore burst of penetrating guitars, thunderous vocals and a titan-esque rhythm section; all which entwine with moments of alt-metal, hard rock with a defining punk undercurrent.
Drawing comparisons to Iron Maiden, Avenged Sevenfold, AFI and Aiden, Chasing Dragons are coming out of the traps making some noise and having already shared stages with Pendulum, InMe, Death Angel, The Sweet and Fearless Vampire Killers amongst others, ‘Checkmate’ is a real statement of intent. And they intend to grab you by the throat.
