Chaser has released first single, “The Breaks”, from upcoming album


Chaser, the melodic punk band out of Southern California, has released the first single and music video, “The Breaks,” from their forthcoming album ‘Small Victories’, out June 28.

Produced by Cameron Webb (NOFX, Social Distortion, Motorhead, Pennywise), “The Breaks” features an upbeat tempo with catchy melodies. As the chorus reads, “Well, that’s the breaks…we’re all one mistake away,” sometimes life doesn’t go as you had planned. But when you make the best of the hand you’re dealt, it’s never too late to change your fate. Unleash your positive mental attitude with this hopeful punk rock song reminding us to keep going no matter how often we stumble.

Homegrown in the heart of the SoCal punk scene, Chaser is passionate, energetic, and melodic punk rock with a positive vibe. Their infectious and heartfelt performances always leave you wanting more.

Comprised of Mike LeDonne (vocals), Jesse Stopnitzky (bass/vocals), Bill Hockmuth (guitar) and Davey Guy (drums), Chaser are 4 close friends that share a deep love for this music and hope to make a difference with it.

For the last 5 years, Chaser toured internationally, playing the biggest punk festivals in Europe and Canada. They quickly developed a reputation of a “can’t miss” live show and rightfully earned main stage festival time slots.

The album title, “Small Victories,” holds a special meaning for us that we felt compelled to share with our listeners. In life, we are continuously presented with challenges, each to our own degree. Managing our personal struggles, we tend to beat ourselves up when the outcome is not as perfect as we envisioned. Instead, let’s learn to appreciate and revel in the small wins that occur on a daily basis. They each carry weight and over time, have the potential to add up to greatness!”

The cover art was drawn by Sebas Theriault of Sterio Design. It depicts rough seas representing the everchanging highs and lows, and ebbs and flows of life. We’re all navigating these waters trying to weather the storm and reach stable ground. Through it all, just remember, we steer our own ship and we control our destiny. We’re not flawless, we’re only mortal, but we’re all in this together.”

The Breaks is the first single of the new album from Chaser “Small Victories” to be released on June 28 via SBÄM Records and Double Helix Records.
