For the Times You Feel Dead or Alive
Chosen X was formed late 1999 as something for the original members to do for fun on the weekends. As time went on it became more evident that this was not just going to be a weekend thing. The band played their first show in June of 2000 and over the next year recorded two EPs independently. They played at many shows locally before they grabbed the attention of Circle Productions in late 2001. The next year they recorded their EP with Circle Productions, entitled 'The Moment Is Gone'. That summer they toured the country for a month playing multiple venues and festivals. All during the rest of the year they played many local shows with local bands as well as some touring bands. The year 2003, however, would prove to be the busiest year for Chosen X. They were in the process of writing music for their first full length album when Circle Productions dissolved in mid-2003. Unfazed by this turn of events, Chosen X decided to move on independently again. They continued to write music and play shows in the local scene with such bands as Copeland, The Rocket Summer, Denison Marrs, Anberlin, Justifide, Celebrity, Pillar, Philmore, and many others. On March 23, 2004, the band released their first full-length album, 'For the Times You Feel Dead or Alive.' In late 2005 Chosen X decided to call it quits due to personal issues of several band members.
