It’s been nearly 12 years since the initial release of what would be the last album by the late Minneapolis-based 12 Rods.

This aptly titled last epic, Lost Time, perfectly defines and captures how great this band was and how truly ahead of their time it’s members were. For Minneapolis, a city fueled on such great music, both 12 Rods and Lost Time have gone down as some of its finest.

We are very pleased to announce Chigliak’s third release, Lost Time by 12 Rods. Lost Time will be release on vinyl and digital January 20, 2015.

Continue reading here and don’t miss you chance to catch the band’s reunion show at First Avenue in Minneapolis, Friday, January 16, 2015 at 8:00pm. Tickets on sale now.

Chigliak is a record label devoted to releasing extraordinary albums that were never commercially released. We, at Chigliak, believe the records we choose to put out are very deeply special and deserve to be in the homes of listeners who may not subscribe to the notion that life changing music is both popular and current. Some of our records were locally released and never put out on vinyl. Some of our records will be new recordings from Artists whom we simply can’t live without on vinyl. Artists such as Amateur Love, Sarah Siskind, and 12 Rods have albums that we plan on releasing in our first year of vinyl releases, all with digital downloads.

We plan to have great exclusive media content on our website for Chigliak subscribers, such as unreleased tracks and never released live video.

We all have that band that changed our lives, that you feel like not nearly enough people have heard. This is Chigliak’s modus operandi; be changed and enjoy.
