Chavez announce first new record in 20 years (listen to “The Bully Boys”)
90s mathy alt-rock greats Chavez are getting ready to release a new EP, which will be their first new record in 20 years. (The band have played reunion shows and its members have been involved in various side projects). The three-song EP is titled The Cockfighters will be out on January 13 via Matador.
The first single is out out now and from the opening squall of a riff, "The Bully Boys" harkens back to the Ride the Fader glory days. Fuzzy, earworm-y lead guitar riffs overlay a crunchy backbone and cacophonous rhythm section. It's good to have these guys back. Listen to "The Bully Boys" below.
