CHIMAIRA is offering fans the chance to put their own spin on the band’s newest video for “Destroy and Dominate.” Fans are encouraged to download the video stem files from chimaira.com/destroythevideo and edit their own version. The new versions can be uploaded to CHIMAIRA’s YouTube, and the band will hand-pick their favorite three videos. The grand-prize winner will receive the limited edition box set version of "The Infection" plus tickets to the band’s upcoming US tour! The second- and third-prize winners will receive tickets and/or CHIMAIRA merch.

Singer Mark Hunter commented on the contest: “We’re all really proud of what friend and director Todd Bell put together for ‘Destroy and Dominate’ but we were also curious to see what other people would be able to do with the video. We wanted to give fans the chance to have access to the footage and edit their own version of the video. We are curious to see some other takes on it. Fans can submit their video to our YouTube. We’re gonna pick the best one and give them one of our limited editon box sets. We’ll pick a winner July 10th.”

“I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with. I’m sure we’ll see some amazing, some funny and some terrible versions. We’re looking forward to seeing them all. I can’t wait to do my own version too, hell I might even use the footage to make a new Chimaira video!”

CHIMAIRA recently wrapped up a support run on the Music As A Weapon tour with Disturbed, and is now looking ahead to a string of headlining dates leading up to the Decimation of the Nation tour this summer with Hatebreed.

Eh, lots of bands are doing this now. I think it's interesting to see what people come up with and kinda cool of the bands to give out good source material for those people with time on their hands to play with.
