Post-hardcore rockers Chiodos have had fans headbanging to their pulsing music even since their explosion onto the punk scene in 2004. Whether lead singer Craig Owens is crowd surfing or getting the crowd pumped up during songs like "Baby, You Wouldn't Last A Minute On The Creek," the frontman brings an intensity to their live shows that can't be matched. The band's powerful playing commands the stage, often provoking mosh pits that perfectly mirror the band's fire and intensity. Chiodos hits the road in 2014 with Emarosa on a headlining tour in support of their fourth LP Devil.
Michigan natives Chiodos met in high school in 2001 and began playing gigs at local all-ages venues around their hometown. Four years later they released their debut album All's Well That Ends Well, landing at No. 3 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart and earning opening spots on tours with Armor for Sleep and Matchbook Romance. Chiodos' sophomore LP generated even more buzz for the band, peaking at No. 1 on the Billboard Alternative chart and landing them gigs with Linkin Park and Nine Inch Nails. Despite several lineup changes, the band continues to make one hit record after the next — their latest is 2014's Devil — and they'll treat fans to another round of hit-filled sets during their upcoming tour dates.
