CHON announces upcoming tours with Circa Survive and The Contortionist

By on March 31, 2015

Prog-rock foursome CHON has officially announced their upcoming tour with The Contortionist, set to kick off on May 9th in Kansas City, MO! CHON recently released their new full-length album Grow! Following the success of two independently released EP’s, CHON signed with Sumerian Records (Asking Alexandria, Crosses, Animals as Leaders) to create this highly anticipated new album.


When a band has the ability to paint a mental picture of their surroundings using only the color and texture of their music, magic happens. CHON, made up of Mario Camarena(guitar), Nathan Camarena (drums), Erick Hansel (guitar), and Drew Pelisek (bass), creates that magic, captivating listeners with bright tones, infectious rhythmic groove, and complex guitar sorcery – furthering an illusion that the listener is there with the band on the beach, feet in the sand. Guitarists Camarena and Hansel lend their unique styles to the concept of “virtuoso,” seamlessly blending jazz and fusion influences with a contemporary fashion, and their signature “chill” factor sprinkled on top.


No strangers to the road, CHON has previously toured with Animals As Leaders and After The Burial, and have graced the lineups of notable festivals such as Skate & Surf Music Festival, South By So What?!, and Sunset Strip Music Festival. With credible touring already under their belt and a full schedule ahead of them, CHON is ready to raise the general population’s morale up a notch with Grow.



CHON officially released their new full-length album Grow on March 23, 2015. Stream Grow on ARTISTdirect, here: Purchase Grow on iTunes, here: For more information, please visit:
