Don’t Stick Around: THE CHARIOT Release New Music Video

Who doesn’t love The Chariot? I mean, I know I do. There is a perfectly sound reason why One Wing didn’t land on my year-end list in 2012: I listened and listened, but I couldn’t completely take in the album. One Wing is amazing and I see that now. If you listened to One Wing, you know that the albums first track “Forget” is especially powerful. It’s hard hitting and aggressive and it rules. Well, The Chariot has released a music video for “Forget” and it’s pretty cool also.     Continue reading

THE CHARIOT To Release Film Based On ‘One Wing’

The Chariot’s Josh Scogin recently came out and revealed that a film inspired by their wonderful new record One Wing is in the works. The frontman is reportedly teaming up with videographer Kevin Custer to put together a short 20-25 minute based on the album. The duo hopes to have the project finished in the coming months and have it featured at upcoming film festivals. I wonder how it will turn out. Until I get to witness this masterpiece (crosses fingers) I will continue to listen to One Wing nonstop.
