The Chewers are Travis Caffrey and Michael Sadler, two freaks who crawled from the woods of West Virginia to taint the water of the Nashville underground. Once there they began to hammer out an idiosyncratic brand of avant-garde rock’n’roll, and infused it with a wry and deadpan sense of humor.

They are now ready to launch their new album Dead Dads, a complex and jaggedly groovy work, although sadly during the time it took to bring the album to term, both Chewers’ dads died. Their deaths deeply affected the birthing process, and became embedded in the dark, irreverent musical mutant that burst forth.

Take a listen to King Cockroach, which features underground legend and long standing MM fave Johnny Dowd, as well as the title track below.
