Artist Profile

The Chads

Sudbury, Ontario

Formed in 2008 when lead singer / bassist Shawn Kosmo and guitarist Cody Foreman were only 15 and 16. After a few years in between drummers, they met punk at heart / sweetheart Brady Middaugh, and have since been one of the fastest punk bands around. The Chads are known for their frantic live shows and their in-your-face speed punk style. Their debut LP, recorded and produced by Rob Seaton of Statues, features 17 blazing punk zingers that will be released sometime in 2011.
