Regardless of member changes, the rising pressure of the band's past success, or life's constant obstacles redirecting their path, Chiodos has once again created an album that pushes boundaries and allows the music to speak for itself. Illuminaudio is an honest, raw representation of hope, strength and optimism. "We put an incredible amount of thought, time, sacrifice, emotion, and stress into the process of making this beautiful monster," states Bell.

A five piece that dug its heels into the dry desert sands and refused to relent, blessthefall planted themselves amid the chaos of competition in January of 2004. Drummer Matt and guitarist Mike formed a band with sweeping dreams and untainted visions. Early on, with friends playing as interim members, the band gained regional recognition by winning local battle of the bands contests, spurring them to continue forming the enterprise, despite the member changes that young bands typically face. Temporarily secure in their line up (with Craig's vocals and Jared on bass) they spent the next year focused on evolving as musicians and refining their sound. Though they drew from bands like Underoath, Alexisonfire, and As I Lay Dying, aspects of pop, hip hop, rap, and even R surfaced in their songs if not through Craig's vocal reach, then through the beats and rhythms that surfaced in their music. Being one of the youngest bands in the area, blessthefall were added to bills with other notable local artists such as Greeley Estates and Scary Kids Scaring Kids.

By October the line up was complete when Eric was added on guitar, complementing the band's progressing sound. As the older bands were away from Phoenix touring and recording, blessthefall took advantage of the musical drought the Valley was in. They confirmed their capabilities by selling out show after show at the local venues. Ultimately, they were responsible for shutting down Neckbeard's (a well known local venue) in January 2006. Doors were permanently closed after the employees failed to maintain capacity due to the hundreds of kids outside trying to force their way into an already sold out show where blessthefall was headlining. They continued to share the stage with other established artists, often drawing a bigger crowd then those more reputed. You can catch them on the entire 2007 Vans Warped Tour on the Smartpunk Stage. Their debut full length His Last Walk will be released on Science Records on April 10th, New Balance 730

With positive vibes flowing between the band and producer, the studio was transformed into a creative sanctuary. Away from the pressures of daily life and touring, the band was able to hone in on their skills and emotions to create a sound that truly represents who Chiodos is today. "He was truly inspiring in a lot of waysfrom New Balance Womens 880v6 pushing us in our writing to digging deep inside of us to helping us realize what our true sound is," Bell describes of the experience.

Seamlessly intertwined with the band's signature haunting melodies and grandiose vocals, is a bolder, more striking contrast between delicate piano work and intense, bellowing screams. With the core composers of the music still at the heart of Chiodos, fans can be reassured that they will hear the sound that they have grown familiar with over the years. Bell explains, "Even if the lineup had stayed the same, I feel that the direction of sound would've turned out similar.
