About Chasing Dragons // Painting Rockets, Turbyne, Freakshow

Line-up -
Chasing Dragons
Painting Rockets
Turbyne
Freak Show

"Careering into view like a raging typhoon, female-fronted Leeds based Chasing Dragons are a sprawling beast that incorporate frenetic post-hardcore bursts of penetrating guitars, thunderous vocals and a titan-esque rhythm section; all which entwine with moments of alt-metal, hard rock with a defining punk undercurrent.

Unafraid to step outside their realms of metal riffery, their new EP "Checkmate" launches you headlong into the full throttle rock and whips you on a journey fused with thick molten riffs dripping with an underlining harmony which then slips into moments of soft melancholia, frantic bass lines and unrelenting guitar pushing it to the limit. They tease you with a sense of mischief, surrounded by a cacophony of rage, defiance and riffs so meaty they could move mountains. Reaching deep inside, they grab your heart and soul and rouse you to stand up and be counted; do not be bound, do not be tied town – fight and fight to survive.

Chasing Dragons are unrelenting, rocket fuelled rock and roll that you can see Lemmy tipping his Stetson to in approval in the distance somewhere.

Drawing comparisons to Iron Maiden, Avenged Sevenfold, AFI and Aiden, Chasing Dragons are coming out of the traps making some noise and having already shared line ups with the likes of Skindred, The Blackout, Funeral For A Friend, Glamour Of The Kill, Pendulum, Silent Screams, Betraying The Martyrs, InMe, Death Angel, The Sweet and Fearless Vampire Killers amongst many others, ‘Checkmate’ is a real statement of intent. And they intend to grab you by the throat."

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Chasing Dragons // Painting Rockets, Turbyne, Freakshow are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
