Post-hardcore band Chiodos battled a devastating lineup change in 2009 when singer and frontman Craig Owens was "let go" from his duties. But the band rebuilt with singer Brandon Bolmer, formerly of Yesterdays Rising, and released Illuminaudio in 2010, the follow-up to 2007's Bone Palace Ballet, which debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Expanding on the keyboard-driven mega-force featured on the band's 2005 debut All's Well That Ends Well, Illuminaudio picks up where Owens left off, boasting the same layered harmonies and bellowing screams that made the band a staple of the genre. Illuminaudio also serves as the debut appearance of drummer Tanner Wayne, formerly of Scary Kids Scaring Kids.
