Chimaira’s fifth full album, The Infection, hits stores next Tuesday. But you can listen to it right frickin’ now: The album is streaming at the band’s MySpace page.
If their previous record, Resurrection, rocked your world, then you'll like the new one. It’s heavier than your mom in cement shoes.
The record itself is available in five different versions — from just-the-tracks CD/download to deluxe-full-metal-jacket package. Details are here.
The band is also sponsoring a Golden Ticket contest, which, according to the press release, “will give fans the chance to win a signature ESP guitar, a copy of Guitar Hero World Tour w/ guitar, or a trip to see the annual Christmas show live in the band’s hometown! Each prize will be assigned a ticket to be randomly placed in three of the previously announced CHIMAIRA box sets, which are available for purchase here.
The box set will be available on April 21, and there will be only 600 box sets produced, with the band signing the first 100! Additionally, the laminate included in the box set will provide a website link that CHIMAIRA will update regularly.
Box set features include:
-Metal Briefcase packaging
-Chimaira Infection Logo Flag
-CD/DVD Edition of The Infection (featuring the bonus track "Revenge" and a "Making of" DVD)
-"Syringe" USB in metal box featuring the bonus tracks "Convictions" and "Warpath", The Infection demos, Wallpapers, Buddy Icons and more
-Pick Pack (featuring signature picks of all guitarists)
-Booklet (featuring never before seen photos of the band in studio)
-Laminate (with exclusive website link)” —D.X. Ferris
