Heading Out To The Highway

Posted on February 12, 2008

Well, the summer touring season officially starts today for Chimaira, as the band is packing up and hitting the road…TODAY. First stop, Toronto. Yes sir, Canada is the spot for the first two dates on their tour with In Flames and Soilwork, and then it’s back to the U.S. for the rest of July. First date of the tour is June 26th. After that tour, it’s onto the 2nd half of Ozzfest for Chimaira, starting July 31st. With the trip ahead, Chimaira frontman Mark Hunter was kind enough to write the following words for us: “What’s up fellow Chimairians?? We are stoked to get back out on the road again, and damn do we have a long ass schedule ahead of us. We are really excited about this next tour, all 3 bands we are touring with are fucking amazing, and we are fans of all of them. It will be a fun time for sure – getting to jam and kick back with some amazing dudes and musicians sounds like a fun summer to me. What a cool way to spend July. Then we head on to Ozzfest…finally right? Looking forward to playing with KSE, Shad, Sworn Enemy and tearing it up for that Ozzfest crowd who are so desperately looking for some real metal to come back to that tour…no worries, the wait is over! Take care everyone and we will see you this summer! Oh ya, stop by the FYE and Jager tent after we play at Ozzfest so we can meet all of you. Late” And speaking of other bands that Mark is a fan of, make sure to check him out in The Battle Of The Month this July in THE VAULT. He will be giving his top 10 picks from the Roadrunner catalog, being pitted against KsE’s A&R Rep Mike Gitter. And last, we shall leave you with a quote of the day, as said by Chris Spicuzza from Chimaira after yesterday’s practice: “I’m sure our backs and necks are about to go through hell. It’s the first week of touring.”
