South Australian metalcore outfit, The Daily Chase are back with their second single, “Killjoy” off of forthcoming EP, ‘The Colour of Crisis‘, to be released Friday April 8.

“Killjoy” explores choices and ultimately being torn between living a good life and being tempted down a darker path when life feels to have lost its purpose. “Everyone can have an evil side, for someone with no purpose it can become uncontrollable,” explains the band. “We all make choices in life that define us as the people we are and the people we want to be.”

Once again the single has been produced, mixed and mastered by long-term collaborator Chris Lalic (Windwaker, The Last Martyr, To Octavia) and is a chugging addition to bands collection. Second off ‘The Colour Of Crisis’ EP after “Lotusland”, the new single had its first play on Wednesday via triple j and comes accompanied by a narrative-based video by Headstrong Films. Mirroring the track theme, the video tells a story of two best friends living recklessly and partying their life away until the pair decide to make a break from their idle life, turning down a criminal path to their ultimate detriment. Watch here.

Previous single “Lotusland” released early February and teased a sound influenced by drum and bass that builds on the bands metal foundations. The single has earned plenty of triple j Unearthed love, scoring track of the day early on as well as Unearthed rotation and a number of 4+ star reviews. The video has also been praised for its fierce undertones and dreamy digital visuals.

The Daily Chase is a five-piece metal outfit from Adelaide comprised of vocalist Rory Cuthell, clean vocalist and guitarist Marc Patterson, drummer Ben Heidrich, guitarist Jake McDonald and bassist Nic Wilks. Since their formation in 2015, the band has played countless shows across the nation and shared the stage with the likes of Escape The Fate, Make Them Suffer, Deez Nuts, Saviour, Confession, Dream On Dreamer and Turnover. The bands music has also been featured in Gold Medal X Games athlete Jackson Strong’s feature film ‘Headstrong 2’.

Having worked tirelessly over the last couple of years, the global pandemic brought time and space to the band in order to bring together their most exciting and innovative work yet. ‘The Colour of Crisis’ delves into intense sonic landscapes and experiments with genre bending hooks while still keeping the raw energy and heart of The Daily Chase.

With the brand new six track EP in their arsenal, The Daily Chase are ready to take 2022 by the horns and hit the stage with a plethora of new sounds and an exciting, modernised performance to boot.
