The Art of Chaos sound is 'alternative' in the truest sense of the word. Vocalist Brian Torres describes the sound best. 'It's anthemic alt rock meets lyrical confessional pop. There are a lot of electronic textures, and the sound is often very lush. I want to bring atmospheric ambience to that melodic space. It's a fusion of ethereal elements with mainstream rock.' Art of Chaos formed in Los Angeles in 2005. That same year, Torres and his band mates released their first EP Lucid, and they quickly began to garner a Southern California fan base. After two years of playing locally, they released their follow-up Crimson and Catharsis. That same year, they entered an MTV2 Battle of the Bands and conquered all challengers. As winners, Art of Chaos performed at the San Bernardino stop of the Projekt Revolution tour, and were so well received that Linkin Park personally invited them to open up seven more dates on the second stage. Art of Chaos slayed that summer alongside Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, H.I.M. and Taking Back Sunday, evolving their live show and winning fans in every city. The band shared the stage with some of the best and brightest acts in modern rock and they held their own, further carving their place in the genre. At the end of 2008, Art of Chaos shifted from it's original format. Brian's bandmates began to pursue other endeavors, but he soldiered on under the Art of Chaos moniker. The fans have always fueled Art of Chaos. From showing up to every show to tattooing the band's name, this fan base is truly diehard. They're also going to be very satisfied with the new music. Currently, Torres is crafting his next Art of Chaos album with producer Lee Miles (Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Tickle Me Pink, Puddle of Mudd) and the results see Torres elevating to the next level as a songwriter and vocalist. Ultimately, the name describes it all. It's really about triumph from within for Torres. 'Art of Chaos reflects the task of finding the strength to keep yourself going. There's still room to believe in positive childhood ideals. Make art from chaos. The music comes from taking dark, negative or harsh aspects of life and then finding the more beautiful and positive aspects within those things and chasing them. I want to give people that catharsis and help them feel like they're not alone in this overwhelming universe. To me, that's one of the greatest gifts that I can offer the human experience.'
