Kaos call it a day “It has been an awesome ride spanning 25 years…”

January 1st, 2013


Well Kiddos…
All good things must come to pass, so the next and last KAOS Show will be held on Friday, January 18th 2013 at the world famous Slim’s in San Francisco, CA.With our good friends Potential Threat, Mystic Rage and opening the show Star Destroyer.
It has been an awesome ride spanning 25 years, playing with tons of kool bands, meeting a lot of great people, seeing the world, and TONS of support from family, friends, and all the rest. But now it is time to take a step back and let KAOS be…for no other reason except, it just feels right.

We cannot thank you all enough for the years of support and long hours of work, sacrifice, endless time and efforts that have been given to the KAOS engine.

First we would like to thank and give our deepest respect to the guys who have been a part of this metal family over the years. Joe Loescher, Jay Figueroa, Tom Lettier, Josh Valdez, Sean Boyles, Burton Ortega, Keven Gorski Albert the 3rd, and Paul Cowan, your contributions and music is forever carved in our name. And to James Humphrey, Shane Larson, and Shane O’Brien for filling in the gaps on our journey.

We can never forget those who worked on the inside and who devoted their time and effort. Michelle Murray for her dedication, love, countless hours promoting, managing and keeping us glued together. Nathan McLeod and Malevolence Records for believing in us and simply being a fan of what we have done. Melissa with Warped Records, Mario Perotti with, Tambre Bryant/Relentless Metal Records for opening the door to Europe, and Beth Risner for being there in the beginning of it all.

There have been some folks that have influenced, helped, believed and really made a difference for us and everyone involved along the way. Phil Demmel, Sean Killian, Rob Flynn, Joey Huston, Walter Morgan, Pascal Boland, Carl Fuli, Eric Mogridge of Epidemic and the boyz, Chris Collins, Tim and Brian Rodriguez , Jamie Jacoby,Louise and John Wilson,Jose Leite, Bruce Corley and family, Pete and Mystic Rage/Bands4Bands, Jimmy Arceneaux and the Stone/Omni Crew, Benny, Spandex Marco, Mark Keaton and the old Sharkbite Studios, Jon Torres, T shirt Mike M.

We have had nothing but good times full of mosh pits, beer, and whiskey along the way to seal the deal on this kaotic rollercoaster metal show. The stage lights are being dimmed, but the name and the music will live on. We are grateful and thankful for ALL OF YOU!!! The website we still be up for cd s and merch, comments, contact

KAOS premier new video/single “Internal Bleeding

February 15th, 2012

We are proud to announce the premier of our new video/single “Internal Bleeding”.

Last month, we teamed up with our friends at Tactical Lighting and Videographer Sergio Collazo at the Temple of Doom in San Lorenzo to shoot our first video. We took a very simple approach to this shoot. Just the band and the stage. Low and behold, it’s probably one of the coolest things this band has done. We are super proud of it and there is no better way than this to mark the new beginnings for KAOS. The release will take place on Wednesday February 22, 2012. Join the event here and share it with all of your friends!
