The Chemist has been hard at work crafting a debut album. Progressing onward from the well-received EP’s, The Wolves Howls Shatter The Old Glass Moon and Lullabies, the band recorded in Perth at The Wasteland with Matt Lovell and is currently entrusting the mix to the crafty ears of Burke Reid.
On the subject of the new material, front man Ben Witt says, “We blended electricity with the insides of a badly beaten blues & folk rock piñata to make a milkshake that is not dissimilar to cement or hair wax. You may not like it, but your dog will fucking love it.“
