The Skinny: Chasing Claymores is a three piece alternative pop-rock outfit from San Diego, California whose members, growing tired of being in failed band after failed band, came together in order to do things the way they want them done. Their music blends together several different influences including rock, punk, pop and emo to create the specific sound that each member couldn’t in their former respective bands.
Chasing Claymores will celebrate their fifth anniversary this July and are about to release their brand new EP Hindsight’s 20/20. The five new tracks show a real progression from the band’s previous material and might remind you of acts the likes of Four Years Strong, A Day to Remember and/or New Found Glory. Currently there’s a real buzz surrounding the guys in their hometown area of San Diego, plus they’ve established a substantial following playing on the Vans Warped Tour and 91X Wrex the Halls. Want to check the hype? Here, for totally free download, is Chasing Claymores’ “Lightning in a Bottle,” a song and band you’ll probably be hearing a lot more of.
