******* The 2011 New Mexico Music Awards has nominated our song "Chasing A Disaster" for "Song of the Year" *********
Exploding out of Albuquerque, NM comes Chasing Disaster. The band tears up an extremely unique, retro-contemporary rock sound that is fronted by Cody Bond, who belts smooth and melodic, yet hyper-powerful, vocals (somewhere between Robert Plant and Jeff Buckley). Always by his side, Cody is complemented by the fluidly multi-talented song-writer, guitarist, vocalist and pianist, Yigal Cohen. Adding feul to the fire is lead guitarist David Kinkead bringing amazingly melodic leads reminiscent of of Vivian Campbell and Brian May. Fueled by pure style and intensity, Michael Gatten delivers the beat with pounding, straight-up rock ‘n’ roll flavor. Bassist Jon McMillan holds the groove together with an amazing musical foundation based in the complexities of jazz and high energy rock.
After releasing their debut 2011 EP, Bullet For a Rose, the band quickly rose to the top of the local Albuquerque rock charts on Reverb Nation. They have been Featured Artists for Windows Media Player, Reverb Nation and SAS Music & More. They were also highlighted in their local publication, The Albuquerque Journal. What is most important to Chasing Disaster, however, are the fans and feedback they receive from them.
