The first single from Faction, the riff filled Like Gravity, has enjoyed considerable success on UK radio since its launch a few weeks ago. If you are yet to experience it, or even if you have and you would just like to enjoy it again, you can check the video for Like Gravity out below:
As previously mentioned, Chasing Dragons will release their very first full length album, Faction, on the 5th of October. This follows an enormously successful Kickstarter campaign earlier this year where the Hunters (as the Chasing Dragons fans are known) from across the UK and beyond helped the band to reach over 200% of their original target. Faction will be the first new music to surface from Chasing Dragons since their 2016 EP Faction:Prologue. Pre-orders for Faction are now available at the following link – Pre-order Faction Now!
The band are absolutely delighted to finally be able to spread the word of their new album. Here’s frontwoman Tank’s thoughts about the upcoming release:
“We can barely contain our excitement for this next chapter of our band! ‘Faction’ is finally here.. after three years in the making and a lot of hard work, we’re finally ready to share it with the world and we can’t wait.”
Since the release of their previous EP, Chasing Dragons have been heavily active in the UK live music scene, playing shows and tours with the likes of Stone Broken, The Qemists, Skid Row, SikTh, InMe, Diamond Head, Aaron Buchanan and The Cult Classics, Courage My Love, Skarlett Riot, Theia and lots more. They’ve also hit the stage at a number of festivals including Bloodstock, Hard Rock Hell and several of their spinoff festivals like HRH Sleaze and HRH AOR, SOS, Rockmantic and most recently Amplified Festival.
The release of Faction will see Chasing Dragons once again hit the road for a full tour, details of which will be announced very soon. The world of Chasing Dragons is going to be an enormously exciting place to be in the next few months, and this is one band you will not want to take your eyes and ears off. Big things are coming, just watch this space.
