CHON confirm U.S. album release trek

California prog rockers CHON are planning to unleash a new self-titled album on June 7th through Sumerian Records.

“We really wanted to make songs with more simplistic structures, but also the craziest parts we’ve ever had musically,” says guitarist Mario Camarena in an official statement. “I think our music is already so weird that when the structure is also crazy, it can be hard to follow. I really wanted this album to appeal to people who maybe don’t listen to this style of music.”

In support of the upcoming release, the band will embark on an album release tour in late spring, and running through summer, with help from DOMi and JD Beck.

The 21-city foray launches on the west coast and eventually heads east for a stop at NYC’s Irving Plaza on June 21 [TIX], plus gigs in Philly, Boston, Cleveland, and more.

CHON are also scheduled to play Indio’s ‘Coachella’ and Atlanta’s ‘Shaky Knees Music Festival’ in the next few weeks.

All upcoming dates can be viewed below, along with a stream to CHON‘s new single “Peace.”
