Chaos Order / Bio

Chaos Order is an American hardcore band from Memphis,TN. The act consist of Filsinger (bass), Austin Russell (guitar), Sam Davidson (drums), and are fronted by lead singer and lyricist Neal Bledsoe.

The bands debut studio album Regulus was self-released in January 2013. Recorded at legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis, TN and produced by Alan Burcham, the 6 song debut features the track "Reflection of Me," for which the group made a music video. Songwriting and regional touring spread over the next few months and by April Chaos was back in the studio recording material for their upcoming sophomore release "Vultures." Once again recoded at Ardent, with Burcham producing, this second effort is a faster, heavier, more energetic record, which displays the band moving in a darker and more melodic direction.

Chaos Order is an American hardcore rock band formed by Jared Filsinger in Memphis, TN in October of 2011. The act consist of Filsinger (bass), Austin Russell (guitar), Sam Davidson (drums), and are fronted by lead singer and lyricist Neal Bledsoe.

Upon it's inception Chaos Order chief song writing duties fell primarily to Filsinger. Now the music is written predominately by both Filsinger and Russell, w/ Bledsoe penning the lyrics. The hardcore foursome's sound is influenced by early hardcore punk, horror punk, and thrash metal. Russell's guitar playing style is punctuated by his fluidity of play, and high gain amp tone, releasing an aggressive upheaval of straightaway original hardcore riffs. Filsinger's shredding bass play is in part a lead bass style with melodic fills, countering Russell's guitar assaults. Davidson's drumming is intensely hard hitting while methodically arranged, playing a stripped down punk rock kit and only a single kick pedal. Neal Bledsoe's vocal performance includes traditional hardcore screaming, backed up with his natural ability to sing, capping off the bands unique cross-over sound. Chaos's music and lyrics are centered around the bands aesthetics of self-reliance, discipline, loyalty, empowerment, and personal growth. The groups live shows are noted for being intense and highly energetic, with fan participation on stage, and pit-indulgent crowds.

The groups debut studio album Regulus was self-released in January 2013. Recorded at legendary Ardent Studios in Memphis, TN and produced by Alan Burcham, the 6 song debut features two singles "Cross on the wall," which has seen moderate radio play both stateside and internationally, and "Reflection of Me," a track for which the group made a music video. Songwriting and regional touring spread over the next few months and by April, Chaos was back in the studio recording material for their upcoming sophomore release Overview. Once again recoded at Ardent with Burcham producing, this second effort is a faster, heavier, highly energetic output displaying Chaos Order ascending in a darker and more melodic direction.

In July 2013, the four piece struck a distribution deal with Fly The Light Records, allowing the band to focus primarily on music and their upcoming fall tour. Due out in October 2013, exclusively on vinyl, the label is releasing Chaos's second studio album Overview.
This release will be followed by more new material offered up only through vinyl and digital download, as the band has moved away from releasing anymore music via the cd format.

On Saturday July 13, 2013, the first ever Stage Dive To Save Lives charity music festival was held in Memphis, TN at 1884 (Minglewood Hall). Conceived in 2011 by Chaos frontman Neal Bledsoe, SDTSL is a benefit which sole function is to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. In addition to having St. Jude officially sanction the event, Bledsoe was able to secure several corporate sponsors including Guitar Center and WholeFoods. The event featured 10 bands (alongside Chaos Order) of varying genres from Memphis and surrounding areas. To date SDTSL has raised over $3,200 for the children of St. Jude.

Next for Chaos Order is extensive touring throughout the southeastern United States due to kick off early this winter.
