One of the things I love most about having the blog for the website is the ability to easily share these touring announcements and while this one came a couple of days ago, I had a stockpile of content lined up so here we are now with the latest from Chimaira. Dig in. I’ll return at the close.

CHIMAIRA will release “Crown Of Phantoms” on July 30th. With critical accolades already starting to compile, this is set to be some of the band’s best material to date. “Tracks like ‘No Mercy,’ ‘Plastic Wonderland’ and ‘Spineless’ are absolute slayers that will surely impress longtime fans and newbies alike, and bring that classic ‘I Hate Everyone flavor’ we’ve all grown to love.” – REVOLVER MAGAZINE
The band recently posted a video that reveals album artwork, track listing and 30 second song clips from their new album. CHIMAIRA also made headlines by way of crowd-funding a fan version CD/DVD where they more than doubled their initial goal via IndieGoGo.

Track Listing:
1. The Machine
2. No Mercy
3. All That’s Left Is Blood
4. I Despise
5. Plastic Wonderland
6. The Transmigration
7. Crown Of Phantoms
8. Spineless
9. Kings Of The Shadow World
10. Wrapped In Violence
11. Love Soaked Death

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Truth be told, I was never one of those dudes that followed Chimaira all that closely. Sure we’ve seen them on a few occasions and added the album review to the content presentation and while we’ve enjoyed those times catching them, I just didn’t get around to being a better follower of their stuff. It happens since there is just so much Metal hitting the streets week after week. With that said, I am happy to share the touring announcement because they are brutality at its finest on the stage and with a show hitting our own Gramercy Theatre, I’m going to try and do one of those cool ticket giveaway contests that we’ve been delivering a lot of recently. You readers can stay tuned for that notion but in the meantime should tell me what your thoughts are about this tour. That’s done down in the comments section below, and there is also a link to order the upcoming album.
