Hertfordshire second-wavers CHRON GEN are back with their first new album in 32 years!
Having reformed to play Rebellion in 2013 and still featuring long-serving members Glyn Barber, John 'JJ' Johnson and Roy Horner, the band have recently returned from successful dates in California and Las Vegas. Now signed to Westworld Recordings, they're set to issue This Is The Age on 16 September.
Storming out of Letchworth at the tail-end of the 70s, Chron Gen made instant headway when their Puppets Of War EP reached the Indie Chart top five. The next two singles on Step Forward and Secret did the same, with their 1982 debut album reaching a respectable 53 on the national Albums Chart. Selling out London's Lyceum under their own steam, they were also included on the now legendary Apocalypse Now Tour alongside THE EXPLOITED, DISCHARGE, ANTI-PASTI and THE ANTI-NOWHERE LEAGUE.
Chron Gen play the following dates....
Sun 10 July Club 85, Hitchin
Sat 16 July Hairy Dog, Derby (Punks Against Cancer)
Tue 2 Aug Gibus Club, Paris
