Mainman Dez Fafara recently said of the follow-up to 2002’s Dark Days: “This record was over 13 years in the making, and I promise it won’t disappoint. Rivals is solid through and through.

“There’s maturity and growth in the music, while still maintaining the true Coal Chamber sound, and delivering track after track of killer tunes. We had a great time working together on this record and I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do.”

Fafara resurrected the outfit in 2011 with founding members Miguel Rascon and Mikey Coxx. Bassist Nadja Peulan was recruited in 2013. Rivals features a guest appearance from Ministry mainman Al Jourgensen.

Tour tickets go on sale sale at 10am on February 27 (Friday).
