Chore – ‘Aloha’ | Overblown Track Premiere


The Coastaline Fire vinyl re-issue is out November 18 via Label Obscura.

In 2002 Ontario’s Chore occupied the heavier side of Canadian alternative rock. Ploughing through a sound influenced by the heft of Helmet and the nuance of Fugazi, the group nurtured a somewhat rabid fanbase in Hamilton. For their third album, The Coastaline Fire, the quartet became a quintet with the addition of Mitch Bowden on guitar and vocals, which received critical acclaim upon its release. Now, the Canadian Label Obscura will re-issue the album on an extremely limited run of 300 copies.

Utilising off kilter harmonies and cool chunky turn of the century distortion, they combined their powerful, intellectual sound and tasteful rock sensibilities with a unique trace of Middle Eastern melodicism on album highlight ‘Aloha’. The track showcases their melodic and balanced approach to post-hardcore, and sees them emerge like Helmet’s Canadian spawn with their own distinctive flavour. Overblown is delighted to re-present the track, and its original performance based music video, to celebrate the re-issue of The Coastaline Fire.
