Napalm Records is pleased to announce the signing of Los Angeles, California’s COAL CHAMBER, a band that stood as leaders at the forefront of new genres, constantly reinventing their sound and not fitting any mold except their own. With sold out tours, and millions of records sold, COAL CHAMBER owned the Scene from the mid nineties until their tumultuous breakup in May of 2002. Now they have returned to take their place at the top where they once were and intend to be there for years to come. Call it what you want, “The Return”, “The Second Coming of”, but no matter what you call it, be prepared COAL CHAMBER to rule again.
Following a 12-plus year breakup the band reunited in 2011 and 2013 for Festival shows as well as an extensive North American tour. Now all four members (Dez Fafara, Nadja Peulen, Mikey Cox, Meegs) have decided the time was right to begin work on a new COAL CHAMBER album.
COAL CHAMBER spoke about their new record and signing with Napalm Records:
“How many times do you get a second chance at anything in life? We toured the world, it was insane and crowds came out in force and we had a blast! For this I’m so appreciative!
Now….. It’s time to release a NEW COAL CHAMBER RECORD! The Vibe between us all is positive AND we’ve assembled a killer team around us! Now with NAPALM RECORDS on board get ready for a heavy, explosion from COAL CHAMBER! We’ve evolved and so has the music, from the demo music I’ve heard you’re gonna sink your TEETH into this! Stay tuned!”
~ Dez Fafara
The band is currently working on the new material that they hope to release next year. More info regarding the new album will be revealed soon.

The English Psychedelic Stoner band ALUNAH has completed the recording for their upcoming third studio album, due for release in September 2014 on Napalm Records.
Singer & guitarist Sophie Day on the upcoming album: “After an intense and inspiring week spent at Priory Recording Studios in Canwell with Greg Chandler, we have now finished recording our third album. Having worked with us on our past albums as well as fronting the majestic Esoteric, Greg shares our vision and understands where we are coming from in terms of sound and songwriting. We have spent the last few months writing and reworking the songs over and over again until we were all happy, and have pushed ourselves in terms of playing/singing technique. To hear the songs sounding as we envisioned them is wonderful, and hugely rewarding. Tony Reed will begin the mixing and mastering process in the next few days, and we cannot wait for you all to hear the end result.”
Check out some photos of the band at work in the studio here.
