This is what they call a DIY band: Chalk Talk. And they're good at it: within months of forming, the band recorded a six-song demo 'Killing Spree', threw together a dozen copies on their own and hit the road for a week-long Northeast tour. They're now in the midst of a self-booked, month-long tour, taking them across the Eastern half of the United States in support of their latest release The Food Chain.

The Food Chain, which the band, in co-operation with Canadian label L'oeil Du Tigre, has made available on CD, 7", and cassette (love!), consists of two brand new tracks and two reworked songs from their original demo Killing Spree. With subject matter ranging from sexual frustration to the monotony of suburban life, and melodies taking cues from the power-pop sensibilities of Weezer and blink-182, The Food Chain is both relateable and widely accessible. Next up for Chalk Talk is a series of dates throughout Quebec in mid-August, marking the first foreign shows for the band.
