Chemical Transport have unleashed their brand new video clip for the single ‘Down, Down’, which was filmed by Gareth McGilvray (Calling All Cars, Closure in Moscow, Attack Attack) which is sparking public attention and just ahead of the band supporting US rockers Senses Fail on their Sydney date.
The concept of the video shows typical Australian teenagers having a dance, laugh and drink in a backyard, but no Chemical Transport will be complete without its mascot… the panda bear! “[The concept] was purely another excuse to have all the boys over and have a drink and laugh, ow and the ladies,” singer Arthur Adam says. “The band has grown up having house parties and backyard BBQ’s with all our mates and ‘Down, Down’ is written about partying so we put two and two together and made it happen”.

Having launched their debut EP titled ‘We’re Not Alone’ on April 24 through New Justice Records, the ambitious rock quintet, fronted by Arthur Adam (Vox), Jack Nisbet (Guitar), Ramzi Hajjar (Bass), Sebastien Fijac (Keyboard/ samples) and Mitchell Links (Drums), spent a total of eleven days recording their seven track EP at Electric Sun Studios with engineers Dave Petrovic (COG – Resonate), Shane Edwards & Matty Nichols. Mastering guru, Toby Learmont at Sony, then placed the finishing touches on the EP, allowing for Dave May at Synapse design (Anberlin, Karnivool) to take over and complete the eye-catching artwork featuring the band’s trademark Giant Panda mascot.
‘We’re Not Alone’ boasts an addictive blend of pop, rock and dance whilst still maintaining the bands original roots in 90’s grunge and nu-metal, to create a new kind of musicality and freshness within the commercial arena. The frequent, effective use of catchy riffs and layered melodies seems to instantly create a connection with the listener to which they can’t resist hearing it out until the very end.
Whether it is at home or on the sweaty late night dance floors, with heavy bass and even heavier crowds, the band have garnered an impressive Australian following thanks to constant and intense live performances. With the growing momentum amongst industry members and fans alike, don’t miss out on catching Chemical Transport tear up the stage supporting Senses Fail on August 14!
