During a recent interview with Pierre Gutiérrez, Chimaira’s Rob Arnold revealed that the band were planning to play another “Chimaira Christmas” concert this year. The guitarist went on to say that they were also discussing the possibility of new music as well.
Arnold said of the following:
“We had the next ‘Chimaira Christmas‘ show, which was gonna be Christmas of 2020… [It[ had been booked, but it hadn’t been announced yet. We weren’t gonna announce it until probably mid-summer… We had already even started talking about setlists and stuff like that. And then along with that came the talks of ‘hey, why don’t we start writing some music and just start putting some riffs together and sending them back and forth?’ and that didn’t really get out of any infancy stage. There aren’t any songs or anything yet that are in the archives or anything like that. That never really lifted off. Because right at that same moment is when COVID hit. And obviously everybody had to make huge adjustments right then. And just everything was put on hold. A few weeks later the show was cancelled…”
He also added:
“All I can say is maybe we’ll try for next year. Hopefully this time next year, everything that should have been happening right now will be happening, but I can’t say—no one can say.”
