Recorded by John Atkinson and produced by Jonah Falco (Chubby & The Gang, High Vis, Home Front) What A F*cking Nightmare is a high energy blend of Oi! hooks and hardcore stomp that’s sure to please fans of all things loud and catchy. “Bloodsucker” follows “Those Days,” “F*ck ‘Em” and “Cry Your Eyes Out” (which have drawn attention from the likes of Stereogum, BrooklynVegan, Revolver, Alternative Press, and more), and provides two minutes and fifteen seconds of melody, ferocity, and a big dose of personality. Vocalist Cal Graham explained the new track, calling it, “a song about that one punisher who doesn’t know when to fuck off, torturing you with their drivel.”

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. 

This week The Chisel are hitting the U.S. for a sold out show in NYC at Bowery Ballroom, followed by an appearance at Baltimore’s Disturbin’ The Peace Festival. Then next month the band will be kicking off lengthy runs in the UK and EU. See full itinerary below.
