Georgia's THE CHARIOT will release its new album, "Long Live", on November 23 via the band's new label, Good Fight Music. The CD was produced by Matt Goldman (UNDEROATH, MYCHILDREN MYBRIDE, FOUR LETTER LIE), who previously worked with THE CHARIOT on "Wars And Rumors Of Wars" (2009), "The Fiancée" (2007), "Unsung" EP (2005), and "Everything Is Alive, Everything Is Breathing, Nothing Is Dead And Nothing Is Bleeding" (2004).

"This is easily my favorite material that we have ever written for an album," states vocalist Josh Scogin. "I believe it is the most passionate release we have ever done, as well as the most impulsive. All of our records have a very spontaneous pulse to them, the songs are always in a constant state of evolving and growing, but for the songs for 'Long Live', we literally just let go. It was a very natural process and I think that comes across in the music."
"Long Live" is a phrase that has preceded everything from revolutions and riots to heartfelt cheers and joyous celebration. When stated alone, those two words can be perceived as innocuous and tame, but pair them with a celebrated entity or righteous cause and they can conjure up the zenith of the human spirit. For THE CHARIOT to name its upcoming full-length album "Long Live", one could take the implications of the title on face value as a bombastic proclamation. For those that have experienced the group perform live, the new album title will instead resonate a deep and meaningful truth. For they have witnessed the harnessed whirlwind of crafted aggression and therefore understand that "Long Live" is not bravado, but the manner in which the band has and shall continue to flourish.
THE CHARIOT is:
Josh Scogin - Lead Vocals
