Announces Spring 2015 Headlining Shows

Watch Visual Stream For “Story” 

On Earmilk, Here:



**Physical Pre-Order Packages For Grow Officially On Sale**



**Set To Kick Off National Tour With Circa Survive On March 16th**


“They are able to illustrate a narrative using frenetic double bass hits, flams and paradiddles 
paired with ice picking guitar riffs that would make Claudio Sanchez of Coheed and Cambria weep.”
“They play optimistic instrumental music with progressive chord changes and a deep, bouncing 

groove…super fast, super clean music pours out of the young four-piece.”

San Diego, CA – March 2, 2015 – Prog-rock foursome CHON has announced a string of Spring 2015 headlining shows! In addition to these shows, CHON will be supporting Circa Survive on a national tour through 25 cities, which is set to kick off on March 16th in Raleigh, NC. CHON recently teamed up with EARMILK to exclusively premiere a visual stream for their new track “Story”! “Story” is the first single to release off of CHON’s debut full-length album Grow, which is set to drop on March 24th. Following the success of two independently released EP’s, CHON signed with Sumerian Records (Asking Alexandria, Crosses, Animals as Leaders) to create this highly anticipated new album. Watch the visual stream for “Story” on EARMILK, here:


When a band has the ability to paint a mental picture of their surroundings using only the color and texture of their music, magic happens. CHON, made up of Mario Camarena (guitar), Nathan Camarena (drums), Erick Hansel (guitar), and Drew Pelisek (bass), creates that magic, captivating listeners with bright tones, infectious rhythmic groove, and complex guitar sorcery – furthering an illusion that the listener is there with the band on the beach, feet in the sand. Guitarists Camarena and Hansel lend their unique styles to the concept of “virtuoso,” seamlessly blending jazz and fusion influences with a contemporary fashion, and their signature “chill” factor sprinkled on top.


No strangers to the road, CHON has previously toured in direct support to Animals As Leaders and After The Burial, and have graced the lineups of notable festivals such as Skate & Surf Music Festival, South By So What?!, and Sunset Strip Music Festival. With credible touring already under their belt and a full schedule ahead of them, CHON is ready to raise the general population’s morale up a notch with Grow.


CHON is set to release their debut full-length album Grow on March 24, 2015. For more information, please visit:
