BAND TOURING IN SUPPORT OF GRAVITY IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT; CD IN STORES NOW
MUSIC VIDEO FOR “WE’VE GOT POCKETS LIKE IT’S NOBODY’S BUSINESS” NOW ONLINE
Touring in support of its most recent release, Gravity Is What You Make It, the band is the first west coast ska-punk band signed to indie label giant Victory Records in over a decade. The album has been getting raves from tastemakers such as the UK’s Rock Sound who claims, “Amidst a sea of palm trees and beach shorts, SoCal’s Chase Long Beach are here to cheer us all up, injecting their hi-res, high energy ska punk sounds right into the heart of the deepest, darkest discontent.”
The band’s latest video for “We’ve Got Pockets Like It’s Nobody’s Business” was directed by KROQ DJ Kurt St. Thomas, who also helmed Brand New’s video for “The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows.” You can watch the Chase Long Beach video here!
Since 2002, the seven men and women of Chase Long Beach have been making a name for themselves with musical originality and creating a sound they can be proud of. Working hard from their home turf of Southern California and reaching out to live audiences around the world, the result has been a musical phenomenon and energetic live performance that speaks to their wide audience and provides the answer to the next wave of ska-punk sound.
Tour Dates After The Jump!
In their six years together, Chase Long Beach has released two EPs: Attack of the Fuzzy Things, (2004) and Chase Long Beach Hosts a Molotov Cocktail Party (2006), closely followed by their excellent full-length debut, LEBEC (2007), produced by Reel Big Fish front man Aaron Barrett. Barrett also makes as a guest appearance on Gravity Is What You Make It, as does Catch 22’s Kevin Gunther.
The members of Chase Long Beach pride themselves on their do-it-yourself work ethic and are entirely comfortable on all stages whether performing in youth centers, dive bars and national venues. The band has toured numerous times over North America and Europe, in excess of 200 dates a year.
