The Chariot will soon film videos for the tracks "Drew Their Swords" and "Forgive Me Nashville." The videos will be filmed by Chariot frontman Josh Scogin, an amateur filmmaker. According to Scogin, the videos will "include many of the concepts touched upon in the album, lots of contradictions and mysteries. We're planning to make the video for 'Swords' pretty random, with quick shots and a bunch of different scenes, and the video for 'Nashville' to be an ironic, glorified performance video."
The Chariot have shot a video for their song “They Faced Each Other” from their new record, The Fiancee, which came out April 3. “The song defines our new record because of its energy,” says frontman Josh Scogin.
Instead of using standard video footage, the Chariot decided to create the clip entirely with still pictures. “I have done many short films and other small projects before using this method so I figured it would translate well into a performance video for us,” Scogin said. “Shooting the video took several hours in one night, however the lengthy process came when I had to edit down 10,000 photos into about 4,000. After three days of going through them and picking what needed to be used, it was done. Look for it soon.”
The Chariot's new album, "The Fiancee" hit stores on Tuesday, April 3 but you can check out a brand new song off the new album called "And Shot Each Other" at the band's PureVolume page.
In related news, The Chariot will be on hand for a special in-store performance at Volume CD Exchange in Chesapeake, Virginia on April 13th from 2-4 PM.

The band is part of Solid State's upcoming Young Bloods II tour.
As previously reported, Every Time I Die bassist Chris Byrnes has left the band, playing his final show with ETID this past weekend in Michigan at Dirt Fest. The latest rumors suggest that Keller Harbin, formerly of The Chariot, has subsequently taken his place.
Lambgoat contacted Byrnes yesterday and he confirmed his departure and had the following to say:
"The split was amicable, but something that I had to do. For the sake of not stirring up controversy I won't go into the details. All I can really say is that it was not an easy decision to have to make. I truly wish those dudes well and know that the success that they achieved prior to and during my time with them will only continue."
