about

This city ain't pretty... so who are we kidding?

Detroit's absurdest dirt-rock freaks, Chapstik, who have withstood long tenure in the rock n' roll underground, has reared it's ugly head(s) once again on their 3rd full-length effort, "Barnburner" on
Unfortunate Miracle Records.

The one time 3-piece lo-fi/garage-punk outfit from San Antonio, now turned 5-piece Detroit-based low-end assault, has marched against the mighty winds and evolved into a multi-faceted rock outfit now referred to as "The World's Angriest Party band."

Think of The Melvins and Turbonegro sipping tea together. Think Zeke and Speedealer in a stained and padded romper room. Think of a bull in a china shop, where the bull politely cleans up after himself.

This is the madness that is Chapstik. Detroiters can call upon references from Speedball, Mule, and Mog Stunt Team 5 to Thrall and former labelmates, Easy Action.

The band collaborated with Detroit-based illustrator, Guy Allen to conceive the design of the new record, and the record also features two tracks with Ross Westurbur (500 ft. of Pipe, Aquarius Void) on
Hammond B3 organ.

The energy of the "Barnburner" record is as sleazy and contagious as a truck stop hooker. From the pounding metal cadence of "Cream of Everything" to the triumphant rock riffage of "It's 8:05" and "Twat's it to Ya?," Chapstik proves it's sound is as raw as it comes, and it's intentions are rooted in rock purity.

about

CHAPSTIK Detroit, Michigan

By hurling fistfuls of thunder and speed, bands like Chapstik (in all their blue collar Thor glory) appeal to the baser self, the self that cannot resist the power of the head bang and the flashing of the metal sign -- the self that knows why it feels so good to be bad.

Chapstik is pure adrenaline.
