The Chisel release new album ‘What A F*cking Nightmare,’ announce worldwide tour dates

Everyone’s favorite punk rabble-rousers, The Chisel, have released their highly anticipated new album, ‘What A F*cking Nightmare,’ out today from Pure Noise Records. Recorded by John Atkinson and produced by Jonah Falco (Chubby & The Gang, High Vis, Home Front) ‘What A F*cking Nightmare’ is a high-energy blend of Oi! hooks and hardcore stomp that’s sure to please fans of all things loud and catchy.

Emerging from the London punk scene, The Chisel have gained worldwide recognition as one of the most exciting new bands in the genre today. While their sound is rooted in aggression, it’s their ability to pack a melodic punch that’s allowed them to stand out from the pack. Across a whopping 16 tracks, the new record hones The Chisel into the keenest and most effective version of themselves.

Vocalist Cal Graham’s biting-yet-tuneful delivery allows the band to swing from eye-bulging raggers to triumphant singalongs that even the most faint-of-heart rock and roll fan couldn’t help but enjoy, and his bluntly powerful lyrics paint vignettes of everyday frustrations, class divisions, exploitive authority figures, and the camaraderie of finding like-minded people in a tumultuous world. The result is a truly essential punk album that grabs the listeners by the head and never lets go. This is The Chisel’s world and we’re just living in it. The band has also announced a lengthy run of US tour dates along with their upcoming UK and EU shows.
