Fire Sale!

Hey Punks! We are having a sale over in the shop. We’re basically asking you to pay postage and the rest is free. Snap up a bargain.

2016 and beyond: A new hope.

It’s no secret that 2016 has been an exceedingly horrible time, on a global scale, and for most people, on a deeply personal level. For us, as a band, and a couple, it was almost insurmountable. We struggled as artists and friends, and ultimately, we divorced. In the wake of that, we were forced to evaluate what this little band meant to us, and whether we could continue it, artistically, emotionally. And then Orlando happened. And then the election happened. And today, the LA Weekly wrote this about us. We didn’t solicit it, it took us by complete surprise. But they are right. Anyone, everyone, who can make music during this time of massive threat to human rights and freedoms, should be doing so. Music has always given us a voice, a strength, some comfort and a lot of passion. Thanks, LA Weekly, for including us. We hope we are able to live up to the potential you see in us. – Kev & Jay, The Chew Toys.

Carson Daly appearance now up on VIDEOS page

A year ago we turned up on the Carson Daly show. We just added the video to our VIDEOS page.

An update of sorts!

Sorry we’ve been so quiet! We’ve been doing other things for the past year – Jay went back to school (and is just finishing up any time now), and Kevin wrote a novel (which will come out in May 2017). So Chew Toys had to take a little break. However, we are demoing a new single this week, and will be going into the studio to record it in the summer. Live dates to follow…

Holiday Shopping Spectacular

Yeah, yeah, you know we hate Xmas. We do. We ignore it. But not everyone can be so lucky, so if you HAVE to do Xmas shopping, we’ve dropped the prices in our webstore. Go nuts, and get a dildo-eating grizzly shirt for Granny at a discount price.

See you next year!

Hey everyone! We just wanted to say thanks for some amazing support in 2015. We’ve played some amazing shows, met a lot of wonderful people, been on TV, drank beer and hung out. It’s been epic. Right now, we’re taking a little breather. Jay’s back in school, and Kev’s in Australia. We will regroup and return early in 2016. Have a wonderful winter.

Long Beach This Sunday!

We are playing Alex’s Bar (the bar from True Blood, vamps) on Sunday! Time and details to come, but mark your calendars.

A show with Clutch The Pearls!

We have been playing shows with our dear, dear friends Clutch The Pearls for nigh on three years, and we’re super stoked to play with them on Saturday Sept 12 at the Lyric Theater in Silver Lake. They’re celebrating the release of their debut single. It’s fucking awesome and you can buy it there, on the night. The show is $5.
