The Chariot - Ink European Deal With Season Of Mist

Official press release:

"Season Of Mist just signed US mathcore act The Chariot in Europe! The Chariot are true artists whose determined passions lead them down winding pathways as they buck trends and avoid formulas. The noisy, rambling, shambling, Southern-fried, punk-infused, heavy hardcore band has long rejected the conventions of the genre that surrounds them by refusing to conform to established structures. The Chariot's sound and presentation owe more to At The Drive In, Refused, Nirvana or even The Sex Pistols in spirit and vibe than the formulaic processed sounds of their contemporaries."
