I like to consider myself still somewhat young, the type of young that will consider going bungee jumping but will blame a hangover for not following through and steps aside to let the others risk their insurance premiums, so it’s weird to think that the first time I heard Chiodos was back in 2007, when I was starting college, and now I’m out of college, and these goobers are still pounding out fresh music.

Post-hardcore phenoms Chiodos are back at it! Recently signed to Razor & Tie, a label renowned for its killer roster and stellar recordings, and who are set to release this sextet’s new album, Devil, on April 1st, 2014. With a large North American tour (see all dates and buy tickets here) lined up, we wanted to chat with the band and learn more about this new effort. Thankfully we snagged some time with Chiodos lead guitarist and back vocalist (and frontman for The Fall Of Troy) Thomas Erak to learn more about the gear he holds dear!
