|Since inception in 2004, CHANT live shows have consisted of a one-man drumming and vocal assault going head to head against a super charged set of triggered electronic-industrial programmed beats. Delivered by creator Bradley Bills, these shows quickly gained a reputation of matching the energy and emotion of a full-fledged band, landing support and touring slots for KMFDM, Pigface, Combichrist, Angelspit, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, and Lords of Acid. As CHANT continues to tour while supporting the latest album “Strong Words for Strong People”, fans will witness the intensity double with the addition of longtime friend and colleague, Kristopher Robin, joining the live line up.
Kristopher, drummer of San Antonio’s renowned Electro-Rock band ‘Guild’, will hit the stage to perform live keyboards, as well as lend his drumming talents to the intricate percussion that CHANT songs are known for. Die hard enthusiasts of Bradley’s solo performances and the unique way the show is presented need not worry… CHANT is not going to become a standard band by any stretch of the imagination:
“I’ve put a lot of thought into expanding the live shows for many years, and this is the right time and the right drummer. Kris and I have been working hard rehearsing songs and mapping out new drum set ups – new custom drum racks and sounds - this will definitely add to what I’ve been doing and bring everything to a whole new level!” – Bradley/CHANT
CHANT’s debut show featuring the new lineup is happening October 28th, 2011, in Austin, TX at The Elysium for the 2nd Annual Halloween event: Bloodbath – presented by Artstrada Magazine. Shows in Texas and surrounding states will follow throughout the Fall with additional touring in 2012.
