Chevelle

Inspired by the lurching riffs of Helmet and the soft/loud vocal dynamics of Tool, the Chicago-based trio Chevelle formed in1995 with an aggressive, heavy sound. Comprised of brothers Sam (drums), Pete (vocals, guitar), and Joe Loeffler (bass), theband began playing parties and outdoor events, which quickly led to bookings at Chicago clubs when youngest member Joewas just 14 years old.

Inspired by the lurching riffs of Helmet and the soft/loud vocal dynamics of Tool, the Chicago-based trio Chevelle formed in1995 with an aggressive, heavy sound. Comprised of brothers Sam (drums), Pete (vocals, guitar), and Joe Loeffler (bass), theband began playing parties and outdoor events, which quickly led to bookings at Chicago clubs when youngest member Joewas just 14 years old. In 1999, Chevelle released their Steve Albini-produced debut album, Point #1, on SquintEntertainment. Three years later -- and following tours with bands like Filter, Sevendust, Powerman 5000, and Machine Head-- the band had inked a deal with Epic and issued Wonder What's Next, released in August 2002. The album went platinum bythe following summer, propelled in part by its second single, "Send the Pain Below," which became a number one hit onmodern rock and mainstream radio. Main stage dates with the annual Ozzfest tour followed that summer, and 2003 brought aconcert album, Live from the Road.

Chevelle returned in the fall of 2004 with their third full-length effort, This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In), and with itcame another hit song, "Vitamin R (Leading Us Along)." Joe parted ways with his brothers in July 2005 and was replaced onbass a month later by Dean Bernardini. Chevelle remained a family affair, since Bernardini was the siblings' brother-in-law.With the new member came a new found energy and optimism that replaced the internal bickering of the past, and the guyscarried that spirit into 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 which werefilmed and released on DVD titled "Any Last Words". In 2011, Chevelle announced that they were taking a break from touringto head into the studio to record their 6th album "Hats Off to the Bull" which spawned the US Rock chart topping single "FaceTo The Floor" to much acclaim which set them back on the map. Chevelle are to release their 7th album in 2014 titled "LaGargola" which is said to move them closer to their roots in terms of heaviness and style. The first single from the album titled"Take Out The Gunman" has been released. « hide
