Last Call Chernobyl releases record

Metal behemoths have a busy weekend ahead


Last Call, in a rare moment of quiet
  • Last Call, in a rare moment of quiet

It's safe to say Last Call Chernobyl is busy: Performing July 5 at Spread the Metal Fest, as well as July 8's eight-hour long bonanza, Give'r Fest, outside the Pavilion, releasing a new EP, a Maritime tour in July with Montreal's Derelict, working on a music video and finishing up a second full-length album. But one thing's off the to-do list with the release of the EP, Set Adrift, Tuesday, July 10. The band has a limited run of CDs for the fests, and hopes the complex, powerful sound of Set Adrift sets the stage for the full-length. Despite such an intense sound (think growly thrash metal), the group is always up for a laugh. "I feel most metal musicians have a Superman/Clark Kent thing going on where they're incredibly different offstage and enter an alter ego while performing," says bassist Jason Szeto. "It's also usually very trivial things that make us laugh, when we're offstage and hanging out you're probably going to hear us cackling over something." Get in on the good times this week. —Stephanie Johns
