Inspired by the lurching riffs of Helmet and the soft/loud vocal dynamics of Tool, the Chicago-based trio Chevelle formedin1995with an aggressive, heavy sound. Comprised of brothers Sam (drums), Pete (vocals, guitar), and Joe Loeffler (bass),thebandbegan playing parties and outdoor events, which quickly led to bookings at Chicago clubs when youngest memberJoewas just14 years old. In 1999, Chevelle released their Steve Albini-produced debut album, Point #1, onSquintEntertainment. Three yearslater -- and following tours with bands like Filter, Sevendust, Powerman 5000, and MachineHead-- the band had inked a dealwith Epic and issued Wonder What's Next, released in August 2002.

Chevelle returned in the fall of 2004 with their third full-length effort, This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In), and withitcameanother hit song, "Vitamin R (Leading Us Along)." Joe parted ways with his brothers in July 2005 and was replacedonbass amonth later by Dean Bernardini. Chevelle remained a family affair, since Bernardini was the siblings' brother. in-law.With the newmember came a new found energy and optimism that replaced the internal bickering of the past, and theguyscarried that spiritinto the recording of their next two albums, 2007's Vena Sera and 2009's Sci-Fi Crimes.

In 2010, the band celebrated its ten-year anniversary in the music business with a pair of live shows in Chicago whichwerefilmedand released on DVD titled "Any Last Words".
