CHAVEZ ANNOUNCE FIRST NEW MUSIC IN 20 YEARS, SHARE NEW SONG "THE BULLY BOYS"


Matador Records darlings Chavez have announced that they are releasing a new three song EP, entitled Cockfighters, on January 13th. The band’s last record was the stellar Ride The Fader, released in 1996. The Ep was recorded in 2015 with John Agnello working behind the board.


Though the band have largely been inactive since that time, there have been sporadic reunion shows and half of the bandmembers have kept busy in and around music. Frontman Matt Sweeney has played in Billy Corgan’s supergroup Zwan,as well as with Bonnie “Prince” Billy and more recently he played bass on the Iggy Pop “Post Pop Depression” tour; guitarist Clay Tarver has worked as a screenwriter on HBO’s Silicon Valley; bassist Scott Marshall is now a film maker; and drummer James Lo works as a sound designer for contemporary dance.


Cockfighters EP Tracklist:


1. “The Singer Lied”
2. “The Blank in the Blaze”
3. “The Bully Boys”
