Vancouver-based hard rock power trio La Chinga have inked a worldwide deal with Ripple Music for the release of their fourth album Primal Forces, due out on October 6th. Stream their boisterous new single Light It Up on all streaming services now – or just check out the band’s new banger below!

La Chinga is a hard rock power trio with psychedelic powers sitting on the world’s edge in Vancouver, Canada. Drawing on influences from Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, MC5, and their own superbad habits, the band has established a beachhead with two albums on Detroit’s cult label Small Stone Records, the second of which, 2018’s Beyond The sky was described by our own Scott Adams as “Simply marvellous… Crazed wah-wah solos. Fuzz out the wazoo. Bonhamesque tubthumping. The Nuge!.. This is the real deal, brothers and sisters, you mark my words”, before spending four weeks at Number One on the Sentinel Daily Weekly Top Thirty Album Chart and hitting number four on our top 100 album survey for the year overall!

Their upcoming fourth album Primal Forces was written and recorded during the tumultuous times of riots, lockdowns and pandemic: a perfect ground for dystopian vibes to permeate the lyrics and album storyline. “The themes of love, sex, death, and hell in a handbasket, so why not go for it and go out with a bang are what drive this album to new territory for us,” says the band. The rock’n’roll is heavy, the riffs are flying and so is La Chinga. Madness, frustration, joy, terror and ecstasy all mingle in a rip-roaring fusion of electric hooks, hip-swaying grooves and choruses to be sung along til the world collapses!
