Boston punks Chandos come from the same local house show scene as acts like Speedy Ortiz, Grass Is Green and Guerilla Toss. After going full DIY and putting out two self-produced EPs, the trio are now set to release their debut album, Rats In Your Bed, on January 27 via Carpark Records. (Pre-orders are on sale now.)
Today, the band are teaming up with AP to bring you an early listen to the album, which is streaming in full below.
“There's really no production on this record,” the band tell AP. “What you hear is all we have. When people find out we cut the record in such a short span (2 days), they're surprised and think it's cool that we didn't try to produce the album at all. But in reality, we just didn't have any money for it. In the end, I think it worked out for the best: The album is straightforward and raw, and we hope people can hear and see us for what we really are.”
