Chute is an alternative rock band from Washington DC. The band fuses together elements of classic rock, grunge, punk rock, and heavy metal to achieve their exciting sound. Released in the fall of 2011, the band's critically acclaimed debut album "Crooked Doses of Happiness" was heralded for combining pop sensibilities with crunchy riffs, powerful vocals, and hard driving rhythms.
The last three and a half years have been eventful to say the least. Despite some shuffling of the lineup, the band has kept up it's profile by playing all over the East Coast, including appearances at the Celebrate Fairfax Festival along side such renowned acts as Cheap Trick, Everclear, and Filter, performing regularly at the 98 Rock Noise in the Basement concert series, and rocking the Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD.
Currently, Chute is putting the finishing touches on an EP, to be released in the Spring of 2015. "It's taken us a while to get the new material together. We had a few false starts, but we are really excited for the fans to hear the new tunes. The wait is definitely worth it!", says vocalist Ben Bargman. Continues drummer Alex Vakhlis, "We've grown as musicians and people since the first record, and I think the music reflects that. The new songs are a natural progression. There's a real balance between stuff that's a little darker, to tunes that have some great melodies and really groove. I can't wait for the fans to hear these songs!"
The band has big plans for the rest of 2015, including shows all over the East Coast in support of the upcoming EP, shooting another music video, and more festival appearances. Stay tuned!
