CHRIS DALLEY is an American Drummer currently for the Implants which have been dubbed by the press as the new “Super Group” from Southern California.
The Implants, began as 5 musicians, friends, who have played shows together in their respective bands, (Strung Out, Pulley, Death by Stereo, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Ten Foot Pole) to form a new group as an outlet to release what everyone has been screaming for …something new
The collaboration began in 2011, One by one jumping on board with their unique mark that would bring life to 12 songs on their first Album "From Chaos to Order"on Cyber Tracks Label to be released May 7 2013.
IMPLANTS are writing and playing music on their own terms that is infused with different styles that defies being classified into any specific genre. With a large following from bands they play or have played with, the Implants have built upon that through social media, radio and press interviews plus several sold out shows resulting in pleas for more music and shows from fans worldwide.
Born in Covina, California, Dalley started playing the drums when he was 5 years old winning competitions until he started playing with several bands such as Lightweight, Homewrecker, and Zero Down with Jim Cherry (founding member of Strung Out) before joining Ten Foot Pole in 2004. In September 2006, Dalley was asked to join Death by Stereo.
Recognized as a "Pedigree" Punk Drummer that takes no "Prisoners", he still tours with Ten Foot Pole when his schedule allows and is best known as the relentless, full throttle, intense double bass drummer for the hardcore band Death by Stereo (2006-2009) and Voodoo Glow Skulls(2009-2012)
Dalley recorded all 16 tracks for the Death by Stereo CD, "Death is My Only Friend" in a mere 8 hours and has earned the reputation as the "go to drummer" for bands in emergency situations because of his ability to learn entire sets in 1 day. Zebrahead recruited Dalley to start their 2008 tour in Europe with a 1 day notice when drummer Ed Udhus injured his leg right before the tour and filled in on several songs for Jordon Burns of Strung Out when recording obligations prevented him from starting the 2009 Strung Out/Death by Stereo tour of Canada/US, playing with both bands. Dalley also played back to back sets at the Rio Rocks Festival in Belgium (2009) with Death by Stereo and Ten Foot Pole.
With several tours of the US, Canada, Europe, Japan and South America under his belt he has fans around the globe that continue to see what he will do next……..
