In a move that is sure to divide opinion, Coal Chamber (yes, THAT Coal Chamber!) have announced that they are working on new material, set to be released on Napalm Records in 2015. (I wonder if that sound I can hear is Suzi squeee-ing! – Ed)
“How many times do you get a second chance at anything in life? We toured the world, it was insane and crowds came out in force and we had a blast! For this I’m so appreciative! Now… it’s time to release a NEW COAL CHAMBER RECORD!
The Vibe between us all is positive AND we’ve assembled a killer team around us! Now with NAPALM RECORDS on board get ready for a heavy, explosion from COAL CHAMBER!” said Dez Fafara (also of DevilDriver). “We’ve evolved and so has the music, from the demo music I’ve heard you’re gonna sink your TEETH into this! Stay tuned!”
Following a 12-plus year breakup, the band reunited in 2011 and 2013 for festival shows and an extensive North American tour. Now, all four members (Dez Fafara, Nadja Peulen, Mikey Cox and Meegs) have decided the time was right to begin work on a new album.
“It’s been a long time coming but the wait is over! There are no words to describe how excited I am to be working on the new COAL CHAMBER record!!! I can’t wait to see all your faces when we rock this album out! Stay tuned!!!” ~ Nadja
“This is the first time in a long time that writing and recording a record feels right. Extremely grateful and excited for this new chapter in the world of COAL CHAMBER!! New music from CC is something we can’t wait to share with the many loyal fans that have stuck it out through everything!!! The evolution of COAL CHAMBER has begun!” ~ Mikey Cox
“I’m so excited to be making music with my brothers and sister, and to the loyal fans who’ve been waiting for this! It’s been a long time coming, but the pieces of the puzzle are finally aligned right. The friendship, the camaraderie, the vibe of the band is perfect now. Can’t wait to unleash on the world!” ~ MEEGS
