Chiodos Release ‘Thermacare’ Live Music Video from Dirt Fest 2012


The reunion of Davison alt-rock outfit Chiodos definitely made the Dirt Fest 2012 experience a memorable one. The band has commemorated their return to the stage by releasing this new video of ‘Thermacare’ performed live at the Birch Run Expo Center — check it out here!

Fans were all kinds of psyched about witnessing the original line up of Chiodos, including vocalist Craig Owens, back in action at last year’s Dirt Fest. Those who weren’t on hand for their big homecoming performance can now see some of what they missed via this video shot by David Alexander.

Chiodos perform ‘Thermacare’ in the video, which was shot on August 11th, 2012 at the Birch Run Expo Center, a song that’s had an interesting history to say the least. A demo version of the track was recorded with Owens in September 2009, just prior to his departure from the band. Though the demo was leaked later on, a new version with vocalist Brandon Bolmer (Owens’ temporary replacement) appeared on their 2010 album ‘Illuminaudio’ under the name ‘Stratovolcano Mouth.’

Though their original lineup reunion was short-lived — guitarist Jason Hale left the band in November 2012 — Chiodos are currently writing a new album with new guitarist Thomas Erak.

As for what Dirt Fest 2013 will bring our way, you’ll just have to wait and see. The festival, which will be bigger and better than ever, returns to the Birch Run Expo Center August 10, 2013.
