The thing you notice most at an Art of Chaos show is just how much they love playing. It is not just about making music for this Los Angeles-based alternative hard-rock band, it's more about having a conversation with their audience. Playing live gives these guys energy, and the audience picks up on that. The crowd becomes participants, and it fuels the band to dig in harder, take risks, and explore new ground. It's no wonder that Art of Chaos is building a strong following throughout southern California, Arizona, Texas, and the East Coast, delivering to audiences who are looking for something more in their hard rock.

Art of Chaos fuses nü-metal, alternative and hard rock influences to forge a sound uniquely their own. Founded just over a two years ago, the band includes guitarists Matt Ardisson and Miles Knowls, singer Brian Torres, bassist Jeff Sutton and drummer Dave Feldman. The five have been writing, rehearsing and gigging relentlessly, with well-received shows at the Hyundai Pavilion, Coors Ampitheatre, Shoreline Ampitheatre, Verizon Wireless Ampitheatre as well as shows at the House of Blues on Sunset Boulevard, The Key Club, Whiskey a Go-Go and the Troubadour.

The band just got done touring on the Projekt Revolution Tour with Linkin Park and My Chemical Romance after winning a contest against 135 of LA's top bands. The grand prize for winning the contest was the opening slot of the LA Projekt Revolution date at the Hundai Pavilion in Devore, CA; but after the members of Linkin Park saw Art of Chaos's over-the-top perform they quickly asked the guys if they could come along for more dates on the tour.

Art of Chaos… the name is an attempt to convey how these 20-something guys fight everyday to make sense of the world around them. But there's real chaos at play in their music, too – a constant tension between the hard rock rhythms, and deceptively simple melodies – that's always one step away from tipping the music over into pandemonium. When Torres sings, "Self-loathing and self-deprecating, looking in the mirror incessantly hating, Everything I was and everything I wasn't," it's moving. With the band driving beneath his vocals, it's jarring. Imagine Jeff Buckley or Thom Yorke writing for Tool or Linkin Park, and you begin to get an idea of what they're about.

Art of Chaos recently finished their second EP, "Crimson and Catharsis" which they hope to release in September. Armed with their new EP, propelled higher by their growing fan base, Art of Chaos is making waves in the LA music scene - one show at a time - with their infectious, inspired hard rock.

Art of Chaos is currently seeking representation and a label.
