Equal Vision recording artists CHIODOS are primed up and ready to deliver Bone Palace Ballet, the follow-up to their critically and commercially-hailed debut All’s Well that Ends Well. Set for release on September 4, 2007, the new album takes Chiodos into new and uncharted territory, with a legion of fans following very close behind. Sales of their previous album have topped 170,000 and still continue to blow off shelves. Cocked and loaded, Bone Palace Ballet is gearing up to be bigger, better and even more spectacular.
Produced by Casey Bates (Fear Before the March of Flames, Gatsbys American Dream) and mixed by David Bendeth (Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Paramore), this album takes off with the raw unrestrained power that marked All’s Well That Ends Well and harnesses it into a powerful behemoth of controlled and carefully orchestrated beauty. From the classically-manic piano/prog-rock stylings of the opening track “Is It Progression If A Cannibal Uses A Fork?” to the aggressive stutter-rock of “Bulls Make Money, Bears Make Money, Pigs Get Slaughtered” to Craig Owens’ drastic vocal jumps in “If I Cut My Hair, Hawaii Will Sink”, Bone Palace Ballet loses none of their earlier work’s diversity while retaining the very thread that makes Chiodos a force to be reckoned with.

Chiodos had a very media-heavy 2006 and first half of 2007, appearing in Blender, SPIN, New York Times, Billboard, and countless times in the pages of one of their biggest supporters, Alternative Press. While their powerful album turned heads a full 360 degrees, their incendiary live shows packed in the crowds and propelled the band into a live phenomenon. Currently headlining the 2007 Vans Warped Tour, the band will be announcing their own national headlining Fall tour shortly.
Bone Palace Ballet is slated for release September 4, 2007 on Equal Vision Records.
