Chore Biography

Chore are a Canadian alternative rock band that formed in January 1995. They released three albums on the Sonic Unyon indie label in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada: Another Plebeian in 1997, Take My Mask and Breathe in 1999, and The Coastaline Fire in 2002.

Their video for the single "General Warning" won a "Best of the Wedge 1999" award from broadcaster MuchMusic, while the video for "The Hitchhiker" saw airplay on MuchLOUD and MTV's 120 Minutes. The songs "The Hitchhiker" and "Burr" were both featured in an episode from the first season of Fox's 24.

"Chore's sound is not unlike the dissonant, jazzier side of Helmet, a phat, low-rumbled metal juggernaut with lots of skate street cred, sporting songs that confound as hard as they rhythmically destroy." - CHART magazine

Chore disbanded in April 2004. Lead vocalist Chris Bell continued to produce music under the moniker Alive and Living, until recently joining Mitch Bowden and David Dunham to perform in Don Vail and The Priddle Concern, along with Bill Priddle (formerly of Treble Charger).

They will reunite for shows in December 2010.
