Posted on February 12, 2008

Hot from the RR US Press Office…. ALBUM #1 MOST ADDED ACROSS THE BOARD ON METAL RADIO CHARTS! VIDEO FOR “DOWN AGAIN” LANDS AT #6 ON CVC CHARTS PRISONERS REQUEST NEW ALBUM ON LOCAL RADIO STATION! New York, NY: CHIMAIRA’s new album The Impossibility Of Reason is making a huge splash at metal radio and video outlets. CHIMAIRA is everywhere on the eve of The Impossibility Of Reason’s May 12 release. The album claimed top add honors at metal radio, crushing the competition with a closed metal fist, as it scored #1 Most Added at CMJ and FMQB’s metal charts. The Impossibility Of Reason not only stole top add honors across the board. The album also debuted in FMQB’s Top 10 and CMJ’s Top 20 airplay charts, respectively. A community radio station, WIKB, in Iron River, MI, even received a letter from an inmate at a local prison, requesting that new CHIMAIRA songs be played on the station’s Saturday night metal program. Apparently, CHIMAIRA helps ease the monotony and struggle of incarceration. In other CHIMAIRA metal domination news, the band’s video for “Down Again,” which was lensed by Paul Brown, made a huge leap on the CVC Rock/AlternativeVideo Chart, landing in the plum position of #6 (above platinum-sellers Staind, Linkin Park & Godsmack). CHIMAIRA continues to terrorize audiences as it tours with Lamb Of God, Eighteen Visions, and Atreyu. The band heads to Europe next month with labelmates Spineshank and upon its return to the States, will hit the road again with In Flames and Soilwork. NEW CHIMAIRA ALBUM OUT ON MONDAY.
