Ex-Chelsea Grin vocalist Alex Koehler resurfacing in new band?

In 2018, Chelsea Grin underwent a significant transition as their original vocalist and founder, Alex Koehler, stepped away from vocal responsibilities to prioritize his journey toward sobriety while grappling with substance abuse challenges. This pivotal moment also saw Tom Barber, who had originally founded the band Lorna Shore in 2009, leave his own project to assume the position of frontman for Chelsea Grin. 

For the most part, Koehler has kept a low profile but all that could be changing in the near future. In a recent interview with Wall Of Sound Taylor Barber, vocalist for Left To Suffer, was asked about his posts eluding to working with Koehler on a project.

Barber responded:

Not to spill his beans too early but he is making another band and so our project is kind of on hold for now but we are doing a little four song EP where he and I are doing split vocals. I think we have like three songs done. It's slow because I am on tour and he is recording for his new band that he has put together with the old guitarist of Chelsea Grin. It's pretty sick, I love Alex, he is one of my boys. I was honestly a fan of his for the longest time.

No further information is currently available about Koehler's current new band, however, you can watch the full clip with Barber below.
