New Chevelle in September

2009-06-11 by Jom STAFF | 34 Comments
Chicago-based Chevelle have inked Sci-Fi Crimes as the name for their forthcoming studio album with a target release date of September 08, 2009.

Speculation has been rampant that the record will be Chevelle's heaviest yet, but drummer Sam Loeffler has gone on record to claim the following:

I think that production-wise it's different in that we used a lot more vintage amplifiers and things like that. I don't know that it's really a heavier record than any of our others. I actually think it's probably the opposite. But it's certainly still driving, melodic, hard rock music.

The record's first single, entitled "Jars," will hit active rock radio in two weeks.

As reported earlier, Chevelle will hit the road with Staind, Shinedown, and Halestorm this summer for the "Stimulate This!" tour, whose tagline is "Wall Street Got Its Bailout; Now You'll Get Yours." In short, tickets are being offered for less than $40, and in some venues, less than $10.

Along with "Jars," Chevelle has been playing "Sleep Apnea" and "Letter from a Thief" live, and it's expected that these tracks will make Sci-Fi Crimes.

I just started getting more into them, funny...

They're actually not that bad, they remind me of that kind of slower sludgy rock/metal/whatever

Hell yes! I was wondering when this was going to come out. Chevelle is one of those bands that seems to get better and better with each album. Vena Sera is one of my favorite albums ever, and I can guarantee that this new album will not disappoint. Heavier is good for Chevelle.

Based on their history, this should be a pretty solid album. I always liked these guys.

For the record, Wonder What's Next > Vena Sera >> This Type of Thinking. (don't have Point #1)

I will very likely enjoy this, seeing as how I know of just 3 or 4 songs from them that don't do anything for me.

They got a new bassist during Vena Sera. I believe it is their brother in law, so yeah, that guy is probably still not wearing a shirt lol.

Will more than likely be fairly predictable, yet solid and enjoyable as usual.

I wish they would lose their overly tweaked production and get back on track with records like Point #1.

I'd actually like to see them go back to the chorus-less stuff of the first two albums. Great production is a good thing, idk about "overly tweaked".

Vena Sera had more interesting guitar parts. Hopefully their use of "vintage amplifiers" will combine the gritty sound of the first couple albums with the more thought out instrumental parts. Yay for bassist with a shirt, Joe Loeffler seemed like a douche bag.

heavier chevelle will rock, most likely. hate to see them with staind though.

I've seen some of their studio updates for this album, and it's looking pretty great :]

I think these guys rock, I have the last 3 albums and there isn't a single song that I don't enjoy in some way.

I've been sitting here for 5 minutes trying to think of something to say.
This is just going to be amazing.
I don't like to use the word Epic, but I have nothing else to say except this is going to be freaking Epic.

Great production is a good thing, idk about "overly tweaked".

The production is so tight on their last two albums (compared to their first two) that it would choke you purple.
