Chiodos have premiered a new video on Guitar World, discussing their new guitarist, Thomas Erak (The Fall Of Troy). “We’ve always just kept in touch,” says Craig Owens. “He’s a very honest guy, and he’s not afraid to be confrontational—and I really love that about him.”

The video features new song clips and some pretty rad footage of Erak shredding on an unplugged guitar. “These guys together have always been something that I’ve admired, and kind of in the back of my mind, wanted to be a part of,” Erak says, “and now I am, so it’s kind of Surreal.”
