HAUNT Release Video for Second Single "Chimera;" New Album Golden Arm To Be Released Next Month
California traditional heavy metal masters HAUNT have premiered the music video for their second single, "Chimera," via Decibel Magazine. The band's upcoming ninth album, Golden Arm, is due out May 5 via Iron Grip Records and Church Recordings. Decibel scribe Addison Herron-Wheeler writes, "The new song is a slice of classic NWOBHM riffs brought into the modern day by furious drumming and sharp production."

"'Chimera' is all about using your imagination," says frontman Trevor William Church. "In music, we must always keep our imagination running wild."
Recorded by Church and produced, mixed and mastered by Darren Trentacoste, Golden Arm is a new beginning for the leather-clad metallers.
Founded in 2017 as the solo project of Church, HAUNT has quickly become the face of the new wave of traditional heavy metal. Since the band's kickstart six years ago, the heavy metal titans have released eight studio albums and multiple extended plays, including two splits, while also touring with bands like Satan, Unto Others, Night Demon, and others.

Dubbed a "prolific songwriter-shredder" by Rolling Stone, Church continues to champion what was once a bygone era of heavy metal. Featuring guitar solos by live guitarist Andy Lei, Golden Arm proves Church is still at the top of his game.
Golden Arm releases May 5 on digital, vinyl and compact disc via Iron Grip Records and on cassette via Church Recordings.
