With Easter fast approaching, Good Friday (April 2) this year will also mark the highly anticipated release of Sydney rockers, Chemical Transport’s debut EP titled We’re Not Alone through New Justice Records.
From the press release:
The self proclaimed anti-scenesters fronted by the charismatic Arthur Adam, Jack Nisbet (Guitar), Ramzi Hajjar (Bass), Sebatstien Fijac (Synth) and Mitchell Links (Drums), spent a total of eleven days recording their seven track EP titled which was recorded at Electric Sun Studio’s with engineers Dave Petrovic, Shane Edwards & Matty Nicholas (COG), mastered by Toby Learmont at Sony Mastering and artwork created by Dave May at Synapse (Anberlin, Karnivool) which encompasses the bands trademark Panda Bear.
We’re Not Alone boasts an addictive cataclysmic collision of pop rock and dance, whilst still maintaining the bands original roots in 90’s grunge and nu-metal, to create a new type of musicality and freshness within the commercial arena. The continual use of catchy riffs and layered melodies instantly creates a connection with the listener to which one cannot resist!
To accommodate the release of We’re Not Alone, the band has geared up to unleash their first single and film clip ‘Down, Down’. The clip filmed by Gareth McGilvray (Calling All Cars, Closure in Moscow, Attack Attack) will surely spark public attention when it is released on TV/Radio in April.
Whether it is at home or on the sweaty late night dance floors, with heavy bass and even heavier crowds, the band have garnered an impressive Australian following thanks to constant and intense live performances. With the growing momentum amongst industry members and fans alike, Chemical Transport is now set to tear it up venues across the nation.
