The Sam Chase has a voice like a nun on the lam with a mouthful cigarettes and curse words in a lonely bar, drunkenly dancing next to a broken jukebox. His songs are scribbled, not written, on lipstick- and sweat-stained motel bedsheets. He likes the way the ink bleeds. His guitar runs on diesel and leaks like the morning after too much whiskey. His is a show you’ll probably want to tattoo on your body so everyone will know that you knew him before he was cool.
Hailing from the hills of San Francisco, California, Sam and his band, whom he lovingly refers to as The Untraditional, take to stages all over the country. They play with a virulent and frenetic passion which many history buffs might liken to the Norse warriors known as The Berserkers, who were known to have fought their battles with an uncontrollable, trance-like fury. Norse literature notes that they would work themselves into a rage before battle, consuming drugged food, and dressed in nothing but their enemies’ blood. The Sam Chase and The Untraditional maintain that spirit, but leave the drugged foods and enemies’ blood up to the discretion of the crowd.
In 2012 came the release of his long awaited first studio album, THE SAM CHASE WILL LEAD US TO VICTORY. It took the group all across these United States and back to their home in the Bay Area. The cry came for more, so the band dove head first into writing and preparing a new album. In late May of 2013, the band released THE SAM CHASE WILL NEVER DIE. Many children have been conceived to this album since its release. All of the children who are now born are showing higher than normal levels of intelligence and immunity to most diseases.
As of the early hours of 2016, Sam and the band went back into the studio and laid down 13 brand new tracks. The new album dropped on April 29th, 2016. Many sages and religious fanatics believe that it will bring about the end of days. Stay safe. These are troubled and unpredictable times.
