Canadian band Chester Doom release new single ‘Anxiety’
Their signature double bass guitar has been compared to that of Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson, and they lash out at CHESTER DOOM’s “Anxiety”, their own ’90s sound. Modern active rock and classic rock anthems from the 80s, 90s and 00s.
“This is our first single since the release of our ‘Masks’ EP in June,” says bassist Glenn Arsenio. “The music has been on this track for over a decade, but we just couldn’t find the right voice for it. When we teamed up with (CHESTER DOOM singer) Josh Best in 2020, it was one of the first songs to put his stamp on it, and we’ve been trying to bring it to the world ever since.”
CHESTER DOOM has generated over 55,000 Spotify streams to date (January 2022) with funding from FACTOR and Music Nova Scotia. Their singles “Monsoon”, “Bleed” and “Boxcutter” received radio airplay in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Mexico and Brazil.
Chester Doom was born from the rugged edges and rocky beaches of Atlantic Canada and grew up on a steady diet of classic and modern rock. With music ranging from beautiful introspective ballads to hard-hitting acoustic swirls, their broad rock and alternative influences combine to create something truly special.
Powerful singer/songwriter/musician Josh Best is truly a force of nature: whether it’s tugging at your heartstrings or roaring like a Category 5 hurricane, he’s sure to leave a few jaws on the floor.
