The Chisel are back! The punk rabble-rousers have returned with the announcement of their highly anticipated new album, ‘What A F*cking Nightmare’, due out February 9th from Pure Noise Records. Recorded by John Atkinson and produced by Jonah Falco (Chubby & The Gang, High Vis, Home Front) the album is a high energy blend of Oi! hooks and hardcore stomp that’s sure to please fans of all things loud and catchy. To celebrate the announcement, The Chisel have shared its lead single, ‘F*ck ‘Em’. The livewire track follows previous single ‘Cry Your Eyes Out’ and highlights the band’s ability to channel catchiness and ferocity in equal measure. Vocalist Cal Graham discussed the new song saying, “the song’s about people who talk but don’t have much to say: gobshites and over-opinionated knobheads.” Emerging from the London punk scene, The Chisel have gained worldwide recognition as one of the most exciting new bands in the genre today. While their sound is rooted in aggression, it’s their ability to pack a melodic punch that’s allowed them to stand out from the pack. Across a whopping 16 tracks, ‘What A F*cking Nightmare’ hones The Chisel into the keenest and most effective version of themselves. Graham’s biting-yet-tuneful delivery allows the band to swing from eye-bulging ragers to triumphant singalongs that even the most faint-of-heart rock and roll fan couldn’t help but enjoy, and his bluntly powerful lyrics paint vignettes of everyday frustrations, class divisions, exploitive authority figures, and the camaraderie of finding like-minded people in a tumultuous world. The result is a truly essential punk album that grabs the listeners by the head and never lets go. This is The Chisel‘s world and we’re just living in it. The Chisel have also announced worldwide tour dates, including select dates and festivals in the US, lengthy runs in the UK and EU, and a special London record announce show set for Dec 7th.
