?> Attackhead - Old School Thrash for the Masses!
Mark will be donating a custom guitar to Covenant House CA.
Posted 11/12/2014
Mark Chapman of Attackhead, Southern California Thrash Metal band, has stepped off the stage on several occasions to give back to social causes.  Early in the foundation of Attackhead, the band endorsed the Melanoma Foundation.  The Internationally touring band has also performed free of charge for the U.S. Military on multiple occasions.  In 2012, Mark worked with Spear Guitars to donate a guitar to Fallen Blue, a cause supporting Police Officers killed outside the line of duty.  Mark has volunteered time to speak to youth groups about his career as a police officer and his position as the front man of Attackhead.

Over the next few months Mark and his wife, Cheryl Chapman of Silly Dog Art Glass will not only donate time to a great cause, but Mark will donate one of  his Ibanez Guitars to the music program at the Covenant House CA.   Covenant House California (CHC) is a non-profit agency whose “mission is to reach out to at-risk homeless youth living on the streets and offer them hope and opportunities to turn their lives around”. The agency has developed a solid program where recording artists such as Nikki Sixx, founder and bassist of Mötley Crüe, has launched “Running Wild in the Night,” a fundraising initiative for Covenant House California. - See more at: http://covenanthousecalifornia.org/running-wild-in-the-night-pg.php

Mark and Cheryl Chapman will begin their volunteer time on November 25th where they will serve over 300 kids for their Thanksgiving party.  Following, both Mark and Cheryl have scheduled time to present information and classes.
Cheryl Chapman of Silly Dog Art Glass will be teaching a holiday ornaments class at The Covenant House on December 9th.  Cheryl Chapman’s art can be seen throughout the San Bernardino Mountains, from Crestline to Big Bear and at fine art shows throughout Southern California and at her website at www.sillydogartglass.com.  Mark Chapman and Cheryl Chapman have worked collaborative in the past on multiple projects most notably the 2012 album cover of “Voices in The Dark” by Attackhead. 

Mark will speak to youth about his career as a Police Officer.  Mark Chapman served in Law Enforcement for over 17 years. In 2006, he medically retired following an on duty shooting for which he was awarded the Medal of Courage. He now leads Attackhead in the music business and around the world performing in ten countries and on festivals as large as Hell and Heaven Festival in Mexico. Besides donating his Ibanez guitar, Mark Chapman has also engaged Dunlop to donate strings, picks, straps, etc to the program.  Mark Chapman says “Dunlop has been great to work with and provides a top quality product”.
