“ROCKET-FUELLED” FEMALE-FRONTED UK hard rock four-piece, Chasing Dragons, are lining up their ranks of fans with their fresh, energetic performances proving their ability to capture the audience. Combining a mix of hard-hitting riffs with raw, powerful vocals, catchy hooks and chemistry second to none, they have been described as a female-fronted mix of the likes of Avenged Sevenfold, AFI & Aiden, with an onstage energy and presence of bands far more established than themselves. With their chunky headbangers, sweeping guitar licks and influences taken from the likes of Brody Dalle, Jettblack, Halestorm, Reckless Love, Heaven’s Basement and many more, the band is steadily building their army.
Since forming in 2011 the band have shared stages with many different bands, at as many venues and festivals as they can sink their fingers into including Pendulum, InMe, Death Angel, The Sweet, Fearless Vampire Killers, The Dead Lay Waiting and more. They have been seen rocking out at Rock and Bike Festival, Highway To Hell, Leeds Fringe Fest and many of the LGBT Prides around the UK. Chasing Dragons have shown their ability to adapt their performance to whatever comes their way.
“…coursing riffs and some killer hooks that you hear once and find yourself humming all the way home… Fronted by the inimitable Tank (and boy, can that girl sing) Chasing Dragons are a definite force to be reckoned with…I can say without fear of contradiction is that Chasing Dragons are all about fun… Channelling too much energy for the cramped confines of the Empire’s stage, Tank took the phrase “music to the people” to a whole other level, getting down off the stage and up close and personal with the audience.
…Chasing Dragons are an excellent live band and were, for me, the high point of MF2012..” ~ Cack Blabbath
The band released their debut EP “Take Flight For A Firefight” in Jan ’12, with production from Graeme Atkinson (Fightstar, Take The Seven) and Carl Bown (While She Sleeps, Trivium). Their single "Hindsight’s A Bitch" (Jan ’13) is also available to view on Youtube alongside acoustic track, "It’s Bravery, Honestly".
“…it’s rare that you come across a band with so much commercial potential as Chasing Dragons; I really can see them hitting the dizzying heights of Kerrang! magazine front covers and top 20 album sales..”
~ Ashley Battye, Leeds Music Scene
Chasing Dragons are gearing up for the release of their second EP “CHECKMATE.” in May 2014.
The band will be touring the UK and beyond throughout 2014, be sure to catch them at a city near you…
