It’s time to stuff yourself with candy corn and existential dread once again, so Chat Pile’s here kick off this October with a new video for the song “The Mask.”
The track is from the band’s latest record, *God’s Country, *out now via The Flenser. Influenced by nu metal, sludge, noise, industrial, and more, their super unique sound is captured perfectly in this brief and furious song.
Chat Pile consists of Raygun Busch (vocals), Luther Manhole (Guitar), Stin (Bass), and Captain Ron (Drums). Stin expands on the track’s meaning in an exclusive with *Revolver *about the video:
“We have a very good friend who wrote a book loosely inspired by the killing spree committed by Roger Dale Stafford in Oklahoma in the late ’70s. Raygun based the song on the book, so it’s a bit of a ‘picture within a picture’ take on the events that took place. It’s one of the most outwardly dark songs on the album for sure.”
Chat Pile will be on the road for the later part of this month, with some shows featuring other artists like KEN Mode, Scarcity, and Planning for Burial. Be sure to catch them if you happen to be one of those lucky folks in the cities below.
