Chapel of Thieves (CoT) is Elysia Moon (vocals, guitar, keys), Justin (guitar), Ryan (guitar, vocals) and Todd (bass). They formed in early 2005 and have gained a well-deserved reputation as one of their areas most rockin’ bands.

CoT are from San Clemente, CA, which is on the South End of Orange County, however, they make very "un-OC" tunes. The band strings the fundamentals of punk, grunge, alternative and classic rock ’n’ roll together with a list of diverse influences including Sunny Day Real Estate, The Cure, Tool, X, The Smiths, and Minor Threat. These myriad influences give their music a unique hard rocking sound which gels so well with Elysia’s strong and distinct vocal stylings - making CoT a group standing apart from most hard rock bands.

In October, they released their first ep featuring 7 heavy-hitting songs. CoT was recently one of five bands nominated by the OC Music Awards in their "Best Hard Rock" category. The Award ceremony happens April 8th at The Grove in Anaheim, CA. Chapel of Thieves has plans to get back into the studio to record their debut full length LP which is slated for release later in 2006. We wish them the best of luck at the awards and can't wait to hear the next release.
