Chimaira Frontman Comments On New Lineup, Forthcoming Album


Chimaira frontman Mark Hunter recently opened up regarding the bands forthcoming album “The Age Of Hell” (due out in August through eOne Music) and lineup shifts. Speaking with Noisecreep on the latter, Hunter offered:

“It was huge deal, but we had to try and make it not be one. We then enlisted our longtime producer, Ben Schigel, to come in and play drums for the recording and also be the conductor of sorts. Here we are with a new album and some new guys in the lineup. We played our first show together last night and it felt like all of those bad things were supposed to happen. We wound making an album that we’re all extremely proud of and we’re out playing more shows. Look, we’re from Cleveland, so we only see the sun three days a year, but today I feel the sunshine [laughs]. It hasn’t felt this good playing in Chimaira for a long time.”
