Coal Chamber Signs With Napalm Records To Release New Album

Napalm Records is pleased to announce the signing of Los Angeles, California's Coal Chamber, which previously ended its career with a tumultuous breakup in May of 2002.

Following that breakup, the band reunited in 2011 and 2013 for a handful of festival shows as well as an extensive North American tour. Now all four members of Coal Chamber (Dez Fafara, Nadja Peulen, Mikey Cox, Meegs) have decided the time was right to begin work on a new album. The band is currently working on material, with a release slated for next year.

Dez Fafara comments: "How many times do you get a second chance at anything in life? We toured the world, it was insane and crowds came out in force and we had a blast! For this I'm so appreciative! Now..... It's time to release a NEW COAL CHAMBER RECORD! The Vibe between us all is positive AND we've assembled a killer team around us! Now with Napalm Records on board get ready for a heavy, explosion from Coal Chamber! We've evolved and so has the music, from the demo music I've heard you're gonna sink your TEETH into this! Stay tuned!"

Nadja adds: "It's been a long time coming but the wait is over! There are no words to describe how excited I am to be working on the new Coal Chamber record!!! I can't wait to see all your faces when we rock this album out! Stay tuned!!!"

Mike Cox commented: "This is the first time in a long time that writing and recording a record feels right. Extremely grateful and excited for this new chapter in the world of Coal Chamber!! New music from CC is something we can't wait to share with the many loyal fans that have stuck it out through everything!!! The evolution of Coal Chamber has begun!"

Meegs: "I'm so excited to be making music with my brothers and sister, and to the loyal fans who've been waiting for this! It's been a long time coming, but the pieces of the puzzle are finally aligned right. The friendship, the camaraderie, the vibe of the band is perfect now. Can't wait to unleash on the world!"

Napalm Records Vice President Thomas Caser also had this to say: "Rarely you get the chance to work with a band that has been a pioneer of a whole genre. We are thrilled and proud to get this chance with Coal Chamber! A new chapter of the band's history is being written and Napalm Records is committed to make it the most successful!"

Uh-oh. Better break out your fishnet arm stockings and your fingerless gloves and better shave your heads, except for those two braids in the front. Pioneers of what? Pretending-you're-insane? That was a garbage trend, and in all respect (?) Korn pioneered being fake-crazy and singing like a sissy. Ugh. You all can have your eyeliner and your boots with a million buckles on them, but I'm willing to leave this crap right where I left it. In a box in my mom's basement when I was 16.
