Chief Set to Release Modern Rituals (Domino Records) August 17th

Select U.S. Tour Dates Begin May 28th

Chief: Night and Day

Chief, a 4-piece from Santa Monica who formed while studying at New York University, returned to their home state after college to devote their time to the band. Signed to Domino shortly thereafter, they began recording in LA with Grammy-winner Emery Dobyns as producer. The result is one of the most stunning debut albums of the new decade. Modern Rituals is stuffed full of soaring melodies, shimmering guitars, heart-stopping harmonies and freewheeling melodic rock. The songs, bubbling over with both a heartfelt melancholy and a sheer exuberance, share tales of romantic disappointments, left lovers and floundering emotions.
