Coal Chamber have released some audio streams in recent months, but now we get our first glimpse at a proper music video. The song is actually the first single from Rivals, their first studio album in 13+ years, and comes out on May 19th on Napalm Records.
Vocalist Dez Fafara told Loudwire about the meaning of the song:
“‘I.O.U.’ touches on those feelings of you being ‘DONE’ with someone emotionally to the point of knowing you owe them NOTHING, no more time, no more feelings, no more phone calls or exchanges of any kind and the Christmas cards are not coming anymore so don’t check the mail!”
Coal Chamber released their self-titled debut album in 1997, broke up in 2003, and have slowly but surely reforming since 2011. Devildriver, Fafara’s other band, is still active, having recruited a new guitarist and drummer, and will have a new album out in 2016.
