Chess at Breakfast

Indie-Alternative
Progressive Indie Rock

Blending elements of progressive rock and indie psych, Chess at Breakfast imposes manic hooks and tenacious rhythms over lyrical themes of despair and disillusionment. Their electrifying live performances embody an angsty disposition, powered by high voltage and dark humor.



The band consists of vocalist/guitarist Caleb McFadden, bassist Justin Daggett, and drummer Mike Davis. Formed in the summer of 2016, the trio spent the majority of that fall working on their debut EP, The Gutshalls. Following the release of their singles "Pushing Daisies (On Your Day Off)" and "Paper Crane" in 2018, Chess at Breakfast worked tirelessly preparing for the release of their debut LP, Wealthcare. Wealthcare was released in May of 2019 and since then, the band has been building hype in their home state of Colorado while writing and recording their sophomore album.
