The Chariot is an American hardcore band from Douglasville, Georgia, formed in 2003. The current lineup consists of drummer David Kennedy, vocalist and bandleader Josh Scogin, and guitarists Brandon Henderson and Stephen Harrison. The band has experienced frequent lineup changes since its inception, with Scogin being the only original member. The band plays an abrasive style of hardcore that does not adhere to typical stylings such melodic/abrasive dynamics and harmonic vocals. They have built a reputation around their powerful live performances, with Scogin's lyrics covering topics like materialism, personal struggle, current events, politics, and Christian themes. Their music has been critically acclaimed as something "that will melt your face and leave you wanting more."

The band was formed by Scogin shortly after he left his position of vocalist in Norma Jean. In 2004, a record deal was signed with Solid State Records and a debut album was released, titled Everything Is Alive, Everything Is Breathing, Nothing Is Dead, and Nothing Is Bleeding. The band has toured constantly since then. The Chariot released the Unsung EP in 2005, which was then followed by three successful studio albums: The Fiancée in 2007, Wars and Rumors of Wars in 2009, and Long Live in 2010. The band entered the studio in May 2012 to record their fifth full length album titled One Wing which was released August 28, 2012. - Wikipedia
