SoCal Experimental Rockers CHRYSALIS and New Noise Magazine Reveal New Track “Thoughts Behind”

SoCal experimental heavy rock group CHRYSALIS will unleash their first new album in seven years, entitled Focus On The Center, next Tuesday, February 11th. Today, New Noise Magazine has the exclusive on the second new track to be released from the album, entitled ‘Thoughts Behind’. Take a listen to the track at New Noise here, and make sure to pre-order Focus On The Center via iTunes at this link.

 

Boasting an inspiring and eclectic sound that sets them apart from their contemporaries, CHRYSALIS will appeal to fans of various rock, hard rock, and metal sub-genres. Focus On The Center was recorded by John Miller and Kris Comeaux (Red Jumpsuit ApparatusLorene Drive), produced by John Miller, and mixed/mastered by Danny Concho (formerly of The Waiting Hurt).

 

CHRYSALIS formed in Barstow, CA in 2003. In 2006, CHRYSALIS released a full-length, self-titled symphonic metal influenced album at the height of the emo and post-hardcore scene. The 2006 release not only charted as one of the top all time sellers in the Gothic Metal genre on CDbaby, but also found a rabid foreign audience as streams in Europe steadily increased.

 

In addition to heightened sales, CHRYSALIS earned a spot on the Vans Warped Tour in 2009. Following the tour, the band shared the stage with the likes of Agent Orange, TSOL, A Day to Remember, Powerman 5000, Fear Before, Heavy Heavy Low Low, and The Apex Theory.

 

 

CHRYSALIS is:

“Yessi Burton” – Vocals, Studio Guitars, Keys

Gabe Gallego – Guitars

Chris Norris – Guitars, Vocals

Jared Sturgis – Bass

Billy Norris – Drums

The band came out swinging playing hundreds of shows before the release of “Fluorescent Youth” in 2010. Since then the band has been hard at work on what is poised to be their best material to date with producers Brandon Paddock (D.R.U.G.S., Panic at the Disco, The Used) and Taylor Larsen (Periphery).

In addition to being a part of the AP Tour last year, they have shared stages with the likes of Paramore, New Found Glory, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, and Good Charlotte. They have earned themselves spots on the Vans Warped Tour, Taste of Chaos, Bamboozle Festival, and SXSW Music Conference.
