Chromatics – “Time Rider”

Chromatics – “Time Rider”

Fall came and went without Chromatics’ Dear Tommy — I guess Johnny Jewel changed his mind again — but we did get a few new tracks from the Los Angeles group in 2018, including “Black Walls,” “Blue Girl,” and “House Of Dolls.”

Today, the band is releasing a new song, “Time Rider,” and announcing a North American tour. Logic dictates that means Dear Tommy must be around the corner, but I’m not expecting anything! It’s the group’s first proper shows in five years, though. Their last live performance was when they showed up at the Roadhouse in Twin Peaks: The Return. Tickets for the tour go on sale on 2/22 at 10AM local time.
