BioCHANT is the mad-scientist driven…tribal-drum-infused… explosive industrial show from Austin, TX that has spent the last few years touring the US, leaving a trail of smashed up drums, trash cans, and satellite dishes in the dust. Drummer and performance artist Bradley Bills created CHANT while drawing on influences of excess and mayhem – mixing world music and street percussion with industrial electro-synth sound designs – presenting a display of self-abuse and punishing drumming that caught the attention of The Butthole Surfer’s Jeffery D. Pinkus and Pigface ring leader Martin Atkins immediately! Both collisions led to an inventive CD/DVD demo release ‘CHANT:Beginnings’ (Pinkus) and a very ambitious, independently released debut album ‘That Which Divides’ (Atkins). Since inception in 2004, CHANT has supported Pigface, My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, KMFDM, Combichrist, The Genitorturers, Angelspit, Black Light Burns, God Module, & Ego Likeness, has contributed to the Pigface album “6″, supplied drum programming for Curse Mackey’s (Evil Mothers) score to the Tabula Rasa video game soundtrack, and landed slots on the side stages of the New Orleans Voodoo Music Festival in 2007 & 2008! For CHANT’s new album “Strong Words For Strong People”, Bradley teamed up with Chris Telkes (Nocture/The Razorblade Dolls) and produced a record full of pummeling militant beats, eerie dissonance, and relentless grooves. With drumming originating from a washing machine, garage door, and high powered grinders – SWFSP takes the listener through a heart pounding barrage of well crafted noise and addictive hooks, illustrated by the hand screened posters and custom art packaging that is incorporated into each copy. Touring in 2011 – CHANT continues to build a reputation as a hard working, up and coming, inventive act within the national underground scene. Today is the day.

Nothing prepared us for the power that rolled as Bradley took the stage... the energy of a CHANT show is aggressive, emotional, and moving.
