La Chinga is a hard rock power trio with psychedelic powers sitting on the worlds edge in Vancouver, Canada. Drawing from Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, MC5, and their own superbad habits, the band has established a beachhead with Detroit’s Small Stone Records and a penetrating buzz across Canada.This autumn La Chinga will release their impending new full-length, Beyond The Sky, via Small Stone Records.
The follow-up to La Chinga’s 2016 critically-lauded Freewheelin’ full-length was captured at Vancouver’s fabled Warehouse studio with no-less-fabled producer Jamey Koch (DOA, Copyright, Tragically Hip). Opening track ‘Nothin’ That I Can’t Do’ sets the agenda for Beyond The Sky’s forty-five minutes of sublimely confident freedom rock, sometimes meaty and beaty (‘Mama Boogie’, ‘Death Rider’), sometimes glam-handed (‘Killer Wizard’), and occasionally even dirtbag pretty (‘Keep On Rollin’). When it all melts into a puddle of phased goo in the final bars of ‘Warlords’, the listener has been rolled, boogied, and otherwise supernaturally conveyed well beyond the sky, maybe even beyond ridiculous.
La Chinga’s Beyond The Sky will see release on September 7th on CD, LP, and digital formats via Small Stone. For preorders go to this location. Watch the video for ‘Killer Wizard’ here:
