From the cover of Alternative Press to a supporting slot on Linkin Park's 2008 North American arena tour, Chiodos has knocked the music world on its collective ear with the arrival of Bone Palace Ballet (Equal Vision Records). With a stunning #5 Billboard debut last September, the sophomore disc by the cutting edge Michigan sextet affirms what loyal devotees of the group have known all along: Chiodos is inexorable.

Anchored by virtuosic lead singer CRAIG OWENS, the Chiodos frontman possesses a wide vocal range that's evidenced by his performance on the invigorating, cabaret-laced "Is It Progression if a Cannibal Uses a Fork?" Owens' onstage persona is as stellar as it is unsettling, bolstered by the wordsmith's deeply poetic lyrics (Bone Palace Ballet takes its name from a collection of Chuck Bukowski poems) and the singer's ability to careen from a pitch-perfect melody to a blood-gurgling rant (see "If I Cut My Hair, Hawaii Will Sink").

Don't miss your chance to see a special solo acoustic performance with Craig Owens in the Pike Room on April 10.
