Chavez went silent in 1996, although they are keen to point out that they never did anything as dramatic as actually break up. This first new material in two decades is a nine minute reminder of Chavez’s swaggering indie-rock power: Cockfighters sounds just the right amount of nineties. 12” on Matador.

8/10 Tom Customer review, 22nd May 2018

As a fan of Chavez's two albums, Gone Glimmering (1995) and Ride the Fader (1996), I thought it was some kind of cruel practical joke when the band suddenly announced a new EP in 2017. One of hundreds of great but underappreciated 90's bands who never seemed to get their due, Chavez deserve a reappraisal and have been getting more acknowledgement, thanks in part of frontman Matt Sweeney's extra-curricular work with artists like Zwan, Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Johnny Cash.

The Cockfighters EP thankfully picks up exactly where Chavez left off on Ride the Fader with some high energy, intelligent melodic post-hardcore, "The Bully Boys" being a particular highlight. Hopefully these three tracks are here to whet our appetite for a forthcoming new album. We can but hope.
