CHRON GEN were never typical of the bands they shared stages with in the early 80’s – their sound was always different – more melodic, powerful and considered, although it would be fair to say that the promise for much more was never realised; expectations never met . . . . . until now.

Their latest album, “This is the Age” is well titled – It is Chron Gen’s coming of age. The contemporary production combines a diverse collection of thought provoking lyrics and classic song structures to create an audio experience that matches the energy of their live performances.

This album isn’t reserved for the punk old guard. Far from it – it is 21st century rock that will appeal to music fans of all generations and genres. It is fresh, different and exciting. Every song deserves its place on the album, although there are many stand out numbers, such as Maybe Baby, Jump and Love this City.

1919 formed in December 1980 in Bradford and set about recording heavy, melodic, intense dance music with no frills and pretentions. The band were an early contributor to what became the Goth genre. (Gods and Alchoves) 1919 had chart success with the singles “Caged”, “Repulsion” and “Cry Wolf” as well as the 1984 LP “Machine”, and recorded two Peel Sessions.

Earlier this year released their second full-length album ‘Bloodline’ on Westworld Recordings.
