Careering into view like a raging typhoon, female-fronted Leeds based Chasing Dragons are due to release their new record, 'Checkmate' on 2nd June via Trash Unreal Management. Produced, mixed and mastered by Lee Batiuk (Deaf Havana); it's a sprawling beast that incorporates frenetic post-hardcore burst of penetrating guitars, thunderous vocals and a titan-esque rhythm section; all which entwine with moments of alt-Metal; hard rock with a defining punk undercurrent.

Drawing comparisons to Iron Maiden, Avenged Sevenfold, AFI and Aiden, Chasing Dragons are coming out of the traps making some noise and having already shared stages with Pendulum, InMe, Death Angel, The Sweet and Fearless Vampire Killers amongst others.

Their current EP 'Checkmate' is a real statement of intent. And they intend to grab you by the throat. To launch the EP officially, there will be two live dates in London and Leeds before the band head off on a UK tour.
