about

WHY YOU GET THIS COOL THING FOR FREE:
Once upon a time, Glee (the TV show) and Chevy (the carriage manufacturer) decided to sponsor the Superbowl. But they had so many promotional videos to release, and only the the most heroic band in all the country would suit as background music. That's when Chasing the Sky arrived. Glee and Chevy were so grateful that they rained money on the band. In turn, the band paid off their recording debts and decided to give you the album for free. THE END.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THIS COOL THING:
“It's no wonder Chasing the Sky promises to become 'the soundtrack to the most intimate moments of your life'. Its carefully crafted, high-energy sound pulls from modern pop-rock and indie influences, and often veers into ballad territory, featuring soaring vocals and heartbreakingly beautiful lyrics that aim to reveal each listener's story.”
-On the Rise: Bands that are Going Places , Revue Magazine

“[The Empty Chair is] a worthy album to check out ... Chasing the Sky meshes incisive alt-rock with pop hooks amid somewhat moody lyrics that flow together well. ”
-John Sinkevics, The Grand Rapids Press

"What makes [Chasing the sky so appealing is] ballad-heavy music with varying degrees of rock. 'A Certain Degree' brings the work forward on almost a 90s alternative rock foot ... 'The Glass Winter' almost channels a band like The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus ... 'Beautiful, Broken Thing', 'Satellites' and 'William' (Forever Lost)” usher the listener out on an impressive note.”
-West Michigan Noise

"Chasing the Sky's new album, The Empty Chair, is one you should not miss. All the tracks are obviously well written with story in mind. They stand up beautifully against the bands they look to for inspiration such as 30 Seconds to Mars, Paramore, MuteMath, Third Eye Blind, and the Beatles. Kudos to Chasing the Sky for making it happen."
— Melanie Coker, Behind the Velvet Curtain
