Hailing from Toronto, Ontario, the Northern manifests one of the finest contemporary metal acts on the scene. Amidst the agonizing grooves, labyrinthine time signatures, dazzling fretwork and ruthless vocals, this five piece symbolizes a new dimension of modern metal.


The Northern is a rock band from New York City and is composed of brothers David Chalk and Jimmy Chalk, Jonathan Seale, and Jason Burger. The Northern was founded in 2007 and released their first record If I Could Meet the Architect on April 22, 2008.

Tastefully blending Chris Thile's lyrical sincerity, Ryan Adam's introspective wordplay, and Coldplay's unabashedly hopeful anthems, The Northern was formed in the woods of Garden Ridge, Texas as brothers Jimmy and David Chalk began recording their debut release "If I Could Meet the Architect" in the summer of 2007. Just weeks later, The Northern recruited Venezuelan-bred multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Seale from New York University's "school of rock", the Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music.

The Chalk brothers' natural chemistry became an undeniable alchemy as The Northern rapidly generated a strong following in New York City's Greenwich Village with high profile shows such as Barack Obama's Washington Square Rally in September of 2007. The Northern's unforgettable live performances and songs have garnered accolades from NPR, NYU's Washington Square News, and St. John's University's Torch newspaper.

The Northern is now recording their first full-length record to be released in April 2008.
