San Diego, California’s CHON has just released the first single “Sleepy Tea” off the their highly anticipated new full-length album titled HOMEY due out June 16th through Sumerian Records. View it HERE. The (mostly) instrumental progressive-rock act recorded the follow up to 2015’s GROW at Palmquist Studios in Los Angeles with producer Eric Palmquist, who is known for his work with heavyweights such as Thrice, The Mars Volta, Mutemath, and Bad Suns.
The band comments; “We’re super proud to show everyone our new album HOMEY. This time we tried a lot of new things out that we’ve always wanted to do, one of which being the chance to collaboration with a bunch of our favorite artists of all time, so this is a special album to us. The loose concept behind the name HOMEY comes from the music being inspired by where we live in Southern California. We rented out a space literally right in front of the beach to write / jam during the writing process of this album so that naturally had an impact on how the songs came out. A lot of magical moments went into the creation of this thing, and we hope you feel em.”
In other news, CHON is excited to announce their headlining tour in support of HOMEY featuring special guests Tera Melos, Covet, and Little Tybee. The Homey Tour will be kicking off on June 2nd at The Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, CA and wrapping up on July 1st at the House of Blues in San Diego, CA.
