Chilean/Canadian thrash hybrid SOCIAL ARSONIST will be hitting the road for dates across British Columbia and Alberta for the month of May, which will then be followed by a tour of Chile and a return to Canada to perform at the Loud As Hell festival in Drumheller, AB (full dates listed below).
Formed in Chile in 2009 by bassist Dario Zuniga and guitarist Manuel Morgado, the two musicians were unable to locate the perfect vocalist in their home country and turned the World Wide Web. Finding Canadian singer Cayle Charlton, the duo worked with him for years via the internet, honing their material before taking the ultimate step of relocating to Canada.
With a full line up in Vancouver, BC, the fiery crucible of Chilean thrash met the icy cauldron of Canadian metal to create an explosive storm built on a foundation of classic thrash and modern metal resulting in two releases. Their 2016 full length ‘Duality of Perception’ and 2014 debut EP ‘De-Evolution of Thy Self’ both demonstrate the hardship of the band’s sound that is aggressive, fast, intense, catchy and disruptive.
Bassist Dario Zuniga reveals that SOCIAL ARSONIST are inspired by subjects beyond metal clichés.
“The whole album carries the Social Arsonist aggression and message of rebellion and anguish against the institutionalization of society plus we have a wide range of influences, including a South American flavouring that everyone seems to enjoy, and coming from South America just to play our music in Canada, we put a lot of effort and passion into our performance!”
