Action Friend

Action Friend’s third album (and first for Chant) was produced by Toshi Kasai (Melvins, Tool, Mike Patton) and features original members Jeremy McLean and Paul Alexander along with John Schuller (Master Musicians of Bukkake, Earth) and Mark G. Thornton (God Of Shamisen). ‘bon•ho•mie’ finds the band in top shape, digging deeper into their singular, genre-hopping brand of rock music.
