There is an excitement and electricity in The Chronics music that gets people up and dancing everytime. The music could be described as dance rock. The combination of catchy melodies and interesting lyrics at times tongue in cheek has created some pop rock gems.

Biography

In 2003 two singing/guitar playing brothers from Sydney, Jules and Greg Townley, left separate bands to join musical forces and embark on a magical journey of rock. Along the way they adopted two other brothers from different mothers, UK bassist Lee North and drummer Grant Colquhouon, and ended up as THE CHRONICS.

Since then The Chronics have ripped the floorboards of Sydney's finest venues with their infectious pop/rock tunes, steadily increasing their faithful followers, regularly gathering for a Chronic cleansing. The Chronics understand that people need a place to hook up, lube the liver, work on personal dance moves that frighten small children and generally unleash the beast within. Almost more of a community service really, a roving center for self improvement!

After three and half years of uniting in song and brotherhood, touching the masses, releasing two EPs (Feel This Way followed by Keys to your Mojo), and generally getting to know it! The Chronics feel it's time to cough up a mini album.

Their debut album, Switch Me On, is a tasty mixed bag carefully formulated to sooth all the senses. From cranking rock tunes that part your hair like "On Account Of My Lover" and libido launching dancehall numbers "Gun" and "Kill You On The Dancefloor," to the personal, lyrical introspective by Greg on "I Need Your Love"…possibly better kept to himself but he just couldn't help it!!.. the common thread through this album, as with past releases, is The Chronics' signature fat driving bass n' drums, lyrical adventures and contagious vocal and guitar melodies.

The Chronics' debut album Switch Me On is slated for release June 29th, with digital distribution through Orchard, available on iTunes, Bigpond Music and other fine on-line retailers world wide. The first single from the album "On Account Of My Lover" has already been christened by Sydney's Fbi Radio 94.5, recently being added to high rotation.

So smash the piggy bank and get ready to get your freak on with The Chronics in the car, at home, work, your local place of worship, or best place of all…at one of their many upcoming gigs.
