"Bombings bring song home"

A CD release party is being held this weekend for a local band whose new single is being unveiled in reaction to international events.

A song written in response to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11 is being released by a Langley band, in light of the bombings in London.

Chemical Sky was going to wait to release its second single, The Man Who Changed The World, but felt the time was right to unveil the song, due to recent events in England.

"London gets hit and we have the same feelings all over again," said singer/ songwriter Steve David. "It fits with what people should be listening to now."

The song is from Chemical Sky's self-titled debut CD, which is being launched at a release party at Langley's Liquid Nightclub and Lounge this Saturday, July 23.

The band, which also features bass player Tom Gourlie and drummer Angelo Petovello, recently released its first single Hang - a cover of a song by Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty - to radio stations across Canada.

David said Chemical Sky intended to promote the song well into the fall before releasing its second single, but plans changed when London was struck by terrorists on July 7. The band has now opted to release The Man Who Changed The World in early August.

The song was written in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on America, and is relevant again now: "It's a song that anyone would appreciate, as it intends to influence peace, not war," David said.

Debut CD released May 2005


Feeling a bit camera shy


Formed in 2004, Chemical Sky started laying tracks in the Fall of 2004 and completed the CD in the Spring of 2005. On May 24, 2005 Chemical Sky released the Debut CD and HANG written by Rob Thomas of Matchbox Twenty was the first single to introduce the Band to music fans. With the addition of BJ Engel and a strong follow up single "The man who changed the world", Chemical Sky continues to surge through the Music Scene as an up and coming Canadian Modern Rock band.
