dateline, May 26th... On this fine day, we send birthday wishes out to Chimaira frontman Mark Hunter, who turns 27 today. As this is being written, Mark is backstage at the Agora Theater in Cleveland having pre-show cocktails with In Flames and labelmates Killswitch Engage (In Flames and KsE are winding down their co-headline tour run). Hookers and blow for's a birthday... As for Chimaira, they will be off to Europe as soon as you can say "June." Hell, did you know? Chimaira will even be hitting Greece on this trip. True. Check our TOUR section for all upcoming dates. For those of us in the states, our next look of Chimaira will be in the form of a new video, that being for "Power Trip." The band shot the video with Lex Halaby out in San Francisco earlier this month. What to expect of the new video? It's a studio-type performance, "(but there's) something about it that makes it a bit special," tells Mark Hunter. We'll see what he means soon enough. And yes, we do realize this is the 2nd Chimaira update hey, it's Mark's birthday. That being said, Happy Birthday once again, Mark. Enjoy the show tonight.
