Chiodos have brought original singer Craig Owens back into the fold and have signed to Razor & Tie. The Michigan band will release a new album through their own newly-created imprint under Razor & Tie. The band is now working on its new album.
The lineup is as follows: Bradley Bell, Pat McManaman, Derrick Frost and Matt Goddard, reunited with Craig Owens. The band's newest member is guitarist Thomas Erak, formerly from The Fall of Troy.
You can catch Chiodos on the main stage of the Warped Tour all summer long.
Owens said, "We're very excited to be working with Razor & Tie. The label is one that we as a band have looked to as a source of integrity filled rock music for some time now. Having our own imprint gives us the opportunity to be as creative as we choose, while also giving us a way to get it to the fans in a direct and focused way. This will be the first time we have released music together, since 2008. To say that we are anxious is an understatement."
Bell stated, "We're extremely excited to do the Warped tour again. It's a tour we first did seven years ago that helped define us as a band and as people. After writing new material for the past few months, it will be very relieving to get back on the stage again and play music for our friends and fans. There needs to be more labels like Razor & Tie out there. I feel like they actually understand the bands motives and will do what it takes to help us present our vision. It's going to be a fun adventure that we are about to embark on with them."
