'To Love Once More' is a bit of an anomaly in Chauncey's world. For a Boston-based band that worked hard to garner critical acclaim in the early 2000s by slaving over every note, every song, every gig...this EP just…well...just kind of happened.
In 2005, Chauncey decided to take an indefinite break. After spending two months, stretched over the course of a year, recording their 2nd record, "My Radio (Everything I Know)," with legendary engineer, Steve Albini, the previous 5 years of touring, showcases, and dashed hopes had taken their toll. Folks were tired, disillusioned with the music industry, ready for a change, and as it does for everyone, life happened.
Fast-forward 9 years to 2014.
A casual suggestion is made: "Guys, why don't we get together, play some tunes, have some beers...but let's do it in the studio, just for fun. No pressure, no agenda. Whaddya say?"
This 5 song EP was born out of that concept: One rehearsal. Little to no material. Sketches. Riffs. Hopes. Excitement. Of course, this could end badly. Limbs broken, feelings hurt, a terrible fall. It had been 9 years after all.
Full of energy and renewed sense of purpose, Chauncey is proud to present what may be their best work to date. We hope you enjoy listening to the new EP as much as we enjoyed making it!
