Kelsey and the Chaos' new single Life Goes On is a ray of light in a world full of dismally mundane love songs. This upbeat tune displays a new attitude that the young band have come to live by.

"This song is all about picking yourself up, dusting yourself off and moving on." Says Kelsey Merritt, front-woman of Kelsey and The Chaos,"I want everyone who hears it to be uplifted and motivated to come out of life's trials stronger than ever."

Kelsey and the Chaos have seen their fair share of adversity, but in turn, a much greater share of success. Life Goes On is the first taste of new music, not to mention a new musical direction since the band's release of "Shut Up and Deal" in 2009 through Tragic Hero Records.

"We started out playing heavier rock music, which you can clearly hear in our first single, Wrapped Around Your Finger, says Kelsey. "It wasn't until myself and the band began writing after the release of 'Shut Up and Deal' did I realize how heavily influenced we were by the fun, no holds barred pop music of so many generations."
"Life Goes On" was released on December 15th 2009, and is currently being spun over 150 times a week on numerous Top 40 Stations across the United States.

Since their formation in 2008 at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA the band has built up quite a resume and an active fan base as proof of their hard work. They have toured supporting Forever the Sickest Kids (2x), The White Tie Affair, The Rocket Summer, Just Surrender, Sing It Loud and more, as well as spending 2008 and 2009 on the Vans Warped Tour.

"I went from being in class every day, to touring the country. The guys and I have grown up listening to these bands and now we were sharing the stage with them. There is nothing cooler than that." says Kelsey of their recent touring experience.

Further proving their commercial viability, the band was named one of the 100 Bands You NEED To Know in 2009 by Alternative Press Magazine. Their song Where We Are was featured on the season finale of "The Real World: Brooklyn" as well as spots on "Keeping up with the Kardashians". The band also performed at a highly publicized MTV2 event in New York City in early 2009 hosted by Chris Carraba (Dashboard Confessional) and received rave reviews from him for their performance. MTV2 also ran commercial spots for the band for a week following the battle, which exposed the band to an even broader audience. 2010 is a new year for Kelsey and the Chaos, and they look to continue to add to their resume.

"We are so excited for the rest of 2010," says Kelsey. "I cannot wait to show the world what this project has to offer."

Kelsey and the Chaos will be playing the Kevin Says Stage on the 2010 Vans Warped Tour-July 6th-31st
