Self-proclaimed “spooky metal” band Coal Chamber is reuniting for several Soundwave dates in Australia. According to singer Dez Fafara, who also fronts Devildriver, this will be your only chance to see the reunited band play live again.
Check after the jump for quotes from Dez Fafara, drummer Mike Cox, and guitarist Meegs Rascón.
Dez Fafara: “COAL CHAMBER is playing SOUNDWAVE Down Under! These reunion shows are for the fans that want to see us again as well as all the people that never got to see COAL CHAMBER. It is and always will be a very special part of my life, so these few shows are for those people and for us. If you’re not from Australia, better get a ticket now to come see this event!”
“This reunion will mark a decade since we last played together, so staring at my brothers on stage face to face will be an emotional rollercoaster for me,” adds guitarist Meegs Rascón. “Tears of joy would be an understatement to say the least. You know, all of us have gone through our separate journeys in life, but we’re coming back to rekindle this and throw the past in the past and put the future in our hands.
“Australia has never seen us, nor have we seen them. It will be an extraordinary exchange of energy and adrenaline. Hello Aussies, nice to meet you!”
Drummer Mike Cox adds, “Of all the great achievements COAL CHAMBER made in the past, getting back together after all we’ve been through will be the greatest achievement to date.”
“We’ve all grown up and put the personal past behind us now and are moving forward with these few shows in a spirit of friendship through music,” states Dez. “You must remember where you came from in order to know where you are going.”
