Chelsea Grin is an American deathcore band from Salt Lake City, Utah. Formed in 2007, the group is signed to Artery Recordings and have released two EPs and two full-length albums.
Chelsea Grin was originally formed by Alex Koehler and former band mates. The band's first members were Koehler, bassist Austin Marticorena and lead guitarist Michael Stafford. Marticorena introduced Andrew Carlston to Chelsea Grin and assisted in rewriting their songs as well as the creation of new material. This writing process lead to the tracks on their first release, a self-titled EP that was streamed and released online through iTunes, then released in Compact Disc format worldwide on July 27, 2008. The band released the songs "Crewcabanger" and "Lifeless" as singles, both of which were received well by listening audiences on Myspace
