Chief Sign To Domino, Ready Single And Album For Release

Domino Records has announced new signing Chief. The band are heading out on tour and the label will be releasing their single "Night & Day" on 10" on June 22nd. "Modern Rituals," the band's full-length release will follow on August 17th.

The story of Chief is one of two coasts. Though Evan Koga, Mike Moonves and brothers Danny and Michael Fujikawa were all born and raised as sons of Los Angeles, they left for New York University, worlds away. It was in New York that they first got to know one another as collaborators, rumbling through a number of semi-serious projects and solo ventures before feeling swept away by a small run of songs Koga had penned and presented to them. He had written them under the name Chief, a moniker the brothers Danny and Michael opted to keep the day they first formed their trio. It was on New York stages that they honed their songs and found their sound, a thoughtfully melodic update on summer and road records past. Natural, timeless songwriting for times that change too quickly.

In early 2009, Chief started to migrate home to the City of Angels for good.
