CHAOS COMMUTE BERLIN-BASED PUNK-ROCK DUO TAKING BACK THE SCENE WITH STRONG POLITICAL SONGS – AND A NEW ALBUM FOR THIS WINTER.
About the track: Times of drastic changes question many societal conventions. Many minorities finally find their voice. The opposition reacts: backwards is the only way. In 1973, a military coup happened in Chile, second home of singer Camilo. Many in his childhood still wanted dictator Pinochet to come back. They wanted the good old times back. This can be applied to today’s populist politicians as well.
About the album: “Fairytales and Nightmares” makes Hard Rock soft again. The twelve tracks on CHAOS COMMUTE’s debut album are as emotional as they are brutal. Between a raging self reflection with a feature by RICHIE RAMONE, casual condemnation of gentrification, a beautifully yearning ballad an angry anti-fascist anthem, singer and guitarist CAMILO BETANCOURT and drummer JULIAN SCHMAUCH are on the run AND on the hunt on these earworms. “Fairytales and Nightmares” – CHAOS COMMUTE tell stories about getting back up again, about relationship drama, about left-wing utopia and right-wing hate, about confessing love and being overwhelmed by the flood of daily news and information. As dirty the riffs are and as rough the sound is, acting all manly is not what CHAOS COMMUTE is about. The sound of the band is riff-laden, oscillating between Punk and Rock, with experimental moments in between. It is pure emotion and invites you to freak out. On “Fairytales and Nightmares”, CHAOS COMMUTE are standing on the shoulders of giants, but with a message.
