Justin attended Tonbridge School, and during his time there became a part of the school band Slice of Life in which he played the bass; the band even released a titled tape. After matriculating, he then studied at Durham University. Afterwards, he joined the band Peach – the metal band started in 1991, and supported the band Tool throughout their European tours. They released the album “Giving Birth to a Stone”, and also toured to support the album. However, they failed to land a major record deal early in their career.

Eventually, Chancellor moved to the United States in 1995, and then joined Tool full time. While the rock band was formed five years prior, he would replace their original bassist Paul D’Amour. He’s since helped the band record many albums, plus producing, and touring worldwide. He’s also helped them win three Grammy Awards. Their first album with Chancellor was “Aenima” released in 1996, since when Tool has become one of the most dominant forces in the alternative metal movement. A few of their other albums include “Lateralus” and “10,000 Days” which found critical and commercial success. Many critics have described Tool as a mix of art rock, progressive rock, and psychedelic rock. They’re currently working on a new album set to release in 2017 and have been continuing to tour each year.

Aside from his work with Tool, Chancellor also started the M.T.Void music project with Sweet Noise’s Piotr “Glaca” Mohammed. In 2004, he played bass for the band Isis on the song “Altered Course”. Two years later he also provided his music skills in the Isis song “Weight”.

Justin also started the store Lobal Orning with his wife in California, however it closed in 2008. Two years later, he worked with Intronaut for their title track “Valley of Smoke”. In 2012, he joined Fusion Syndicate in the song “In the Spirit Of…” Two years later, he was featured in their album “Prog Box”.
