Chain

Ian Svenonius' current outfit Chain & the Gang released Minimal Rock n' Roll and while it purposefully lacks production flourishes, it's got no shortage of style and attitude. (Those have been Svenonius' calling cards since the start.) Stream the whole thing and watch the "Devitalize" video below.

Chain & the Gang will be on the road soon, touring with Baltimore party-starters Ed Schrader's Music Beat. Dates include a NYC stop at Baby's All Right on July 29. Tickets for that show are on sale.

All dates are listed, along with the album stream, below...
