Midwestern post/alt-metal outfit CHROME WAVES – uniting former members of Wolvhammer, Nachtmystium, Abigail Williams, The Gates Of Slumber, Amiensus, and more – makes its return with a new lineup and their debut album, A Grief Observed, currently in its final stages for release in early 2019. Well in advance of the album’s release, the band has issued several teasers of what is to come, including a new trailer, the first single “Burdened,” and a non-album cover of Slowdive’s “When The Sun Hits.”
Founding member Jeff Wilson offers, “CHROME WAVES is a band that has always been in the back of my mind and something I knew would take priority when the time was right. With circumstances in 2018 being as they are, I’m now free to focus all the energy I was spending on other projects on the one that’s been the most personal to me all along. I would put this new material up there with the best that I’ve been involved with over the last ten or twelve years or so, and with this new revamped lineup, I’m very excited to see what 2019 holds for us.”
Now in its final stages, A Grief Observed is engineered by Niko Albanese and the band’s James Benson and Jeff Wilson, with artwork by Wilson. The album will be released on Wilson’s own Disorder Recordings label on LP, CD, and digital formats on March 1st, 2019.
