He Has Entered The Twilight Zone

Chaser Eight says:

We are so excited to announce the final piece of our Chaser Eight puzzle. We have searched high and low for the perfect fit and we finally found him. Ladies and gentlemen please join us in welcoming our new drummer, Eliav Nachmani. This year is going to be insane. We are getting ready to share so many amazing things with you and we are so glad to have Brennan, our new bassist, and Eliav along for the journey.

Been Lost Dreaming

*AUDRA* says:

On January 27th, 2017 we released our second Naked collection, Been Lost Dreaming. Naked for us means something completely different than it does for most people. Playing off the album art cover from our full length LP, Chaser Eight, we decided to call all our acoustic versions of songs Naked. See, the LP had a picture of a naked side boob on the cover. And when you combine that with people calling acoustic versions of songs the  "stripped down version,'' BOOM, you get Chaser Eight Naked. Our first Naked collection featured four songs from the LP. This Naked collection features three brand new songs.

We are especially excited to release this collection because not only are these songs brand new for our listeners, but we also recorded and produced the entire collection ourselves in our home studio. That's right. After working through the arrangement of the songs and nailing down the ideas, the talented Pat Walsh put on his engineer/producer hat and took to his DAW to bring you what you hear today. So these songs are emotional and have an emotional connection to us.

So we really hope you'll take a listen to the three songs by clicking this link: Been Lost Dreaming

And then you can buy them here: ChaserEight.com or iTunes

Bill, I Love You So, I Always Will

Chaser Eight says:

It's the end of an era. Our beloved bassist and friend, Billy Wang, has decided to move on from Chaser Eight and start a life without a bass in his hands. It comes as a great shock to Pat and *AUDRA* as they have been playing in a band with Billy since they were 15 years old. We love Billy very much and wish him all the best in the future. And he better make it to some shows too!

But with the passing of one, comes the joining of another. Everyone please help us in giving our new bassist, Brennan DiLernia, a HUGE Chaser Eight welcome. He is in for one crazy ride and we have a feeling he's going to fit right in. 

Bye, Bill! Hi, Brennan!

The Spinal Tap Problem

*AUDRA* says:

We would like to welcome our newest member and newest friend to Chaser Eight, Dennis DeMorro a.k.a. Double D! Full disclosure, he has been a part of the band since April, but we've been so busy gigging that we haven't had the chance to officially announce him on the site.

As time goes on and we roll on, band members will come and go. And, as it seems in this band, much like Spinal Tap we keep losing our drummers to things like spontaneous combustion or choking on vomit that isn't theirs. Shit happens. But we hope we get to keep this gem for a long time because not only is he an amazing drummer, he's a damn cool guy to hang out with as well.

So all you Crazy 8s out in the world do us a huge favor and warmly welcome Double D to the Chaser Eight Family!

The Band Also Known As a Rocket Ship

Aaron says:

It’s been almost a year since I joined this rocket ship known as Chaser Eight. I refer to it as such not just because of the speed in which it’s gaining momentum, but also in the context of the extreme heat and passion that burns deep within all the components involved. I have been a guitarist since the age of 12 and throughout the years I played around on the keys a bit too. Even though I've played the keys here and there, it was never with any of the intensity required to be up to par with the likes of the members of Chaser Eight. It has been a sobering and challenging endeavor to make those black and white keys match up to the rocking style Pat and *AUDRA* bring to the stand.

As a musician, with my main instrument of choice being guitar, playing the keys is a whole different animal. Yes, they both have the same notes possible, and yes, the format of the piano is more uniform. All that aside, one must take in consideration the methods and the patters to each animal. For those of you who are not musically inclined I’ll give a simple example: Scales on a guitar basically have the same pattern in a given key signature i.e. A minor. If you want to play in B minor, just move up two frets and play the same pattern, boom. You want to play C minor? Move up one fret from B minor. D minor? Two from there and so on and so forth. But for piano it's not that easy. For every different key signature you play in there is a different combination of black and white keys needed to make it fit. It’s not just black and white, but alas, I will prevail!

I do like the opportunity and the challenge entrusted to me by my band mates and I look forward to expanding my skills to compliment the rock tones created by the five of us. I am, at the core, a guitarist and get many chances to play on stage. However, as time rolls on, my core will assimilate keys into the whole of being a rock musician with the awesomeness known as Chaser Eight. If you have heard us, that's great; you have an idea what we’re about. If you have seen us, you know what we’re about and how we rock. And if you haven’t done either of the two, well shame on you! This rocket ship is not slowing down for anyone. So climb aboard and take a ride up to the stars with us. Full speed ahead! Hope to see you there.
