Chuck Coles (also known as Chuut Coles) (born 20 March 1980 in Scarborough, Ontario) is a Canadian musician. He was the guitarist for heavy metal band Brown Brigade[1] and the lead singer, guitarist, and "band leader"[citation needed] for the band The Organ Thieves.

Before joining Brown Brigade, Coles was a member of Canadian pop punk band Cauterize from 2005 to when it disbanded in 2007; he played his last show with Cauterize on October 19, 2007 while already a member of Brown Brigade. With Cauterize, he played on the albums Paper Wings (2005), and Disguises (2007) with its added acoustic EP Unmasked. Coles's addition to the band as lead guitarist provided for stronger three-guitar melodies on Disguises, particularly on the re-release of Closer.[citation needed] Prior to joining Cauterize, he played in local punk, hip-hop, reggae band Murder Culture.[citation needed]

Coles formed the southern/hard rock band The Organ Thieves[when?] with Brown Brigade band-member Dave Baksh and former Cauterize band-member Matt Worobec. Coles sings lead vocals, plays lead guitar, and writes most of the lyrics and guitar melodies for the band.[citation needed] The Organ Thieves released their first EP, God's Favorite Sons, in March 2009.

As of 2013 Coles has been rhythm guitar for the Creepshow. In 2017 Coles did a small southern Ontario tour opening for Against Me!. Currently he fronts Chuck Coles and the United Snakes.
