Metalhead Media conducted an interview with CHIMAIRA on March 22 at 02 Academy 2 in Oxford, England. You can watch the chat below.
CHIMAIRA's current lineup is as follows:
Mark Hunter - Vocals Matt Szlachta (DIRGE WITHIN) - Guitar Jeremy Creamer (DAATH) - Bass Emil Werstler (DAATH) - Guitar Sean Zatorsky (DAATH) - Keyboards Austin D'Amond (BLEED THE SKY, THE ELITE) - Drums
CHIMAIRA's "Chimaira Christmas" concert on December 30, 2011 at the House Of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio marked the band's final performance with guitarists Matt DeVries and Rob Arnold.
CHIMAIRA in December released a free digital EP, "The Age Of Remix Hell", via Multiupload.com. The effort, as the title suggests, contains remixed versions of songs from "The Age Of Hell".
"The Age Of Hell" sold more than 7,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 54 on The Billboard 200 chart. The band's previous CD, "The Infection", opened with 15,000 units back in April 2009 to land at No. 30. This figure was roughly in line with the first-week tally registered by CHIMAIRA's 2007 album, "Resurrection", which shifted 16,000 copies to enter the chart at No. 42.
"The Age Of Hell" was released in the U.S. on August 16, 2011 via eOne Music; in Germany on August 26; and in the United Kingdom, Australia and the rest of Europe on August 29 through Long Branch Records.
