Chevelle

Chevelle is a 3.8 alternative metal band from Grayslake, IL. They formed in 1994 with the members of Sam Loeffler, Pete Loeffler (brothers) and Matt Scott. Matt was later replaced in 1996 by Joe Loeffler as bass player. On July 10, 2005, Joe was fired because of “irreconcilable differences”. Geno Lenardo (Filter) filled in until August 2005, when Dean Bernardini (brother-in-law to the Loefflers) became the new bass player of Chevelle.

Chevelle is a 3.8 alternative metal band from Grayslake, IL. They formed in 1994 with the members of Sam Loeffler, Pete Loeffler (brothers) and Matt Scott. Matt was later replaced in 1996 by Joe Loeffler as bass player. On July 10, 2005, Joe was fired because of “irreconcilable differences”. Geno Lenardo (Filter) filled in until August 2005, when Dean Bernardini (brother-in-law to the Loefflers) became the new bass player of Chevelle. Inspired by the lurching riffs of Helmet and the soft/loud vocal styling of Tool, Chicago-based trio Chevelle’s aggressive, heavy sound is all about mounting tension exploding into raw guitar bursts. They started out playing parties and outdoor events, which quickly led to bookings at Chicago clubs when youngest member Joe was just 16. Chevelle released their first studio album, entitled Point #1, on May 4, 1999. Chevelle recorded a demo known as TheBlueAlbum, and played small concerts for the next three years until they were signed on to Steve Taylor’s Squint Entertainment. The band recorded for 17 days in Electrical Audio studios, and in 1999, Chevelle released the album Point#1, which was produced by Steve Albini. Chevelle released their second studio album, entitled Wonder What’s Next, on October 8, 2002. Released three years after Point#1 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 by the nextsummer and their second single, 'Send The Pain Below', was a number one hit on modern rock and mainstream radio. Chevelle released their third studio album, entitled This Type Of Thinking (Could Do Us In), on September 21,2004. The album debuted at number eight on the Billboard 200, and was certified gold by the RIAA six weeks later. The song 'Vitamin R (Leading Us Along)' was released as the first single from the album and reached the number one position on the Mainstream Rock chart. Two other singles were released from the album, 'The Clincher' peaking at number three on the Mainstream rock chart, and 'Panic Prone', which peaked at number 26 on the same chart.Chevelle released their fourth studio album, entitled Vena Sera, on April 13, 2007. The album was recorded with producer Michael “Elvis” Baskette, whom the band previously worked with on both This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In) and Wonder What’sNext. VenaSera debuted at number 12 in the Billboard 200 with Chevelle being the only rock band in the Top 15. Chevelle released their fifth studio album, entitled Sci-Fi Crimes, on August 31, 2009. The album was recorded with producer Brian Virtue. The band’s brand new single, 'Jars', was the No. 1 most added track at rock radio and the single is quickly becomingone of the band’s biggest hits to date entering the Top 20 after only two weeks. Chevelle spent seven weeks co-producing Sci-Fi Crimes with Brian Virtue (Jane’s Addiction, 30 Seconds To Mars, Deftones) in Nashville, Tennessee. « hide
