“CHIMAIRA is hard at work writing number six, being domestic, and making moves that will ensure awesomeness in 2011,” states vocalist Mark Hunter. “As you may have read, we are not exactly done touring yet. After all, we just released a new DVD. We hit up our agent and some killer bands, and came up with the ‘BLUE COLLAR BRAWLER TOUR’; 10 shows in 10 awesome cities. After that, we will switch our energy and start preparing for CHIMAIRA CHRISTMAS 11. This will be your last chance to see CHIMAIRA live for a while, so I suggest you do so. 2010 has been another amazing year for CHIMAIRA, and we can’t wait to end it on a high note with these shows. See you all there. We look forward to the party.”
CHIMAIRA CHRISTMAS 11 will take place on December 30th, 2010 at the House of Blues in Cleveland, OH. The band will be joined by special guests Ohio Sky.

See you all out there!”
