DEKALBThe House Café heralds the return of almighty juggernaut The Chariot at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 8. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door. This is an all-ages show.
The Chariot formed from the rubble of frontman Josh Scogins prior venture, Norma Jean. Blazing their way across America, the Atlanta foursome carved a niche in the modern metal scene by delivering blistering, raw power during their notoriously chaotic live shows. The group has finalized its lineup (for now) and The Chariots sound reflects a more cohesive identity, keeping a firm grasp on the integrity of a real musical experience, free from the reins of overproduction and monotony.
The bands constant touring in support of their debut album, Everything is Alive, Everything is Breathing, Nothing is Dead and Nothing is Bleeding (Solid State Records), has earned them a large fan base, helped along by the release of the Unsung EP, which featured reworked tracks and hometown concert footage. Hot off the road from a national tour with P.O.D., The Chariot is headlining Solid State Records Young Bloods II tour, also featuring August Burns Red, Destroy the Runner, Twelve Gauge Valentine and Inhale/Exhale!
