“Terrifying and thrilling in equal measure, the debut album from the Oklahoma City sludge-metal band is a vivid rendering of the towering piles of poison littering America’s psychic landscape.” – Pitchfork

Oklahoma City’s Chat Pile released their debut LP for The FlenserGod’s Country, at the end of July and the band is continuing their forward momentum with the release of a curious new music video for album single “The Mask.”  The video premieres today via Revolver Magazine alongside a Q&A with bass player Stin where he waxes rhapsodic about his not-so-secret love of nu metal.  Additionally, Chat Pile will be making rare appearances along the east coast later this month, closing out October with a hometown show and an appearance at No Coast festival — check out tour dates listed below.

In just a couple of years, Chat Pile have made nothing short of a profound impression on the underground music discourse. Formed in the spring of 2019 by Raygun Busch (vocals), Luther Manhole (Guitar), Stin (Bass), and Captain Ron (Drums), the noise-rock quartet would release two EPs that same year, titled This Dungeon Earth and Remove Your Skin Please. Spurred on by both a hearty run of live performances and a swiftly growing online fanbase, Chat Pile became a staple name among its genre contemporaries thanks to its hellish synthesis of noise rock, sludge, industrial, and mid 90’s nu-metal. In 2020, the band would sign with San Francisco underground music label, The Flenser, to put out their critically acclaimed debut full-length, God’s Country.
