Chevelle (band)

Chevelle is an American rock band formed in Grayslake, Illinois, in 1995. The band was originally composed of two brothers, Pete Loeffler (lead vocals and guitar) and Sam Loeffler (drums and percussion), along with Matt Scott (bass and backing vocals). Scott was replaced by Sam and Pete's brother, Joe Loeffler, in 1996. When Joe left the band in 2005, Geno Lenardo subbed in as the touring bassist until he was replaced by Pete and Sam's brother-in-law, Dean Bernardini. Bernardini departed from the band in 2019, and in 2021, Kemble Walters joined the band as a touring bassist.

HistoryEdit

Early years (1995–2003)Edit

Chevelle formed in 1995 in Grayslake, Illinois, when brothers Pete Loeffler and Sam Loeffler started enjoying and learning to play music.[1][2] Pete started playing guitar and singing while Sam began playing drums in their parents' garage.[1] Bassist Matt Scott was also in the band until 1996.[3] Their youngest brother Joe Loeffler joined the band replacing Scott.[1][2] Each of the band members were self-taught musicians.[2][3] The name Chevelle came from the band members' passion for fast cars.[4] It was also a car their father liked, the Chevrolet Chevelle.[5] The band started playing small outdoor concerts and clubs around Chicago, Illinois, with Joe being only 14 years old.[1]

Chevelle recorded a seven-track demo known as The Blue Album, released in 1998.[3] The band played small concerts for the next three years until they were signed on to Steve Taylor's Squint Entertainment,[1][2][3] a contemporary Christian music label.[6] The band recorded with Steve Albini for 17 days in Electrical Audio studios and released its first full-length album, Point #1 and in 1999.[2][3][7][8] Two singles were released from the album with accompanying music videos, "Point #1" and "Mia".[2][9] The songs received GMA Dove Awards in 2000 and "Point #1" in 2001.[10] The album received an award for "Hard Music Album" in 2000 by the Dove Awards.[11] The album was well received by Phantom Tollbooth and HM Magazine,[12][13] yet was criticized for its repetitive song structures by Jesus Freak Hideout, a Christian music website.[8] The band's label at the time was going through legal troubles as Word Records was attempting to wrestle control of Squint from Taylor.[2] This caused uncertainty with the band's future.[2] Discussing the legal battle, bassist Joe Loeffler stated "we weren't sure if anything was going to happen after that, it was pretty crazy."[2]

Chevelle toured as support to bands such as Sevendust, Machine Head, Filter, and Powerman 5000 in this period.[1][3] Squint Entertainment closed down in 2001 and the band signed with Epic Records in 2002.[1] In 2002 Chevelle released its second studio album Wonder What's Next on Epic Records.[3][14] The band released the single "The Red", which reached No. 3 on the Mainstream rock charts, and the video was played in regular rotation on MTV.[15] Wonder What's Next soon peaked at No. 14 on the United States Billboard 200 album chart.[16] Brian O'Neil of AllMusic stated the album "offers uniqueness not often heard in more commercial fare, no mean feat."[17] Chevelle released two more singles from the album, "Closure", and "Send the Pain Below", the latter of which reached the No. 1 position on both of the mainstream rock and modern rock charts.[15] Wonder What's Next was certified 2× platinum by the RIAA with excess sales of one million copies sold in the United States alone in 2003.[18][19]

In 2003, Chevelle performed at Ozzfest, where the band recorded and later released its first live album, Live from the Road, and a live DVD, Live from the Norva.[14][20] The band toured Europe with Audioslave in early 2003, and later in the year they played on the Music as a Weapon II tour with Disturbed.[20][21] On the tour with Disturbed, Chevelle appeared on the tour compilation album, titled Music as a Weapon II, featuring the songs "The Red" and "Forfeit".[22] Keith Miller of EvangelSociety.org was critical of Chevelle for touring with Ozzfest with bands such as Cradle of Filth, who he claimed incorporated strong satanic and anti-Christian themes into their lyrics.[23] In 2004 Sam Loeffler said, "It's something that's probably going to follow us around forever and that's fine. It's pretty simple. We originally signed with a record company that was backed by Word (a Christian label housing John Tesh and Amy Grant), so [Point #1] was in Christian bookstores. It was really an accidental thing."[23][24] Sam also told the Chicago Tribune, "Our faith is still extremely important to us, but it's also very personal. None of us feels being a rock band on stage should be a pedestal for preaching."[25]

Line-up changes (2004–2010)Edit

This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In) was recorded in early 2004, and was released in September 2004.[14][3][26] The album debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200, and was certified gold by the RIAA six weeks later.[16][27] Johnny Loftus of AllMusic described the songs on the album as "strong dynamically, but sound predetermined — they don't separate from the general loud rock malaise."[26] The song "Vitamin R (Leading Us Along)" was released as the first single from the album and reached the No. 1 position on the Mainstream Rock chart.[15][3][28] Two other singles were released from the album, the titles of which are "The Clincher" peaking at No. 3 on the Mainstream rock chart, and "Panic Prone" which peaked at No. 26 on the same chart.[15][3] Before the album's release, Chevelle received attention when "The Clincher" was featured in the video game Madden NFL 2005.[29]

After the release of the album, the youngest of the brothers, Joe Loeffler, was dismissed from Chevelle.[30] Due to different stories from the band members, it is unclear whether he was fired or left the band of his own accord.[30] Pete and Sam stated the following on the band's official website: "After three years of non-stop touring and recording, Joe is taking a break to be home with family. We'll miss having him on the road with us, but as his brothers and bandmates we respect his decision and are looking forward to getting out there and playing for the fans. See you on tour." However, according to Ultimate Guitar Archive, Joe said he was fired.[30]

The band supported This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In) with a headlining tour that included opening acts such as Taproot and Thirty Seconds to Mars, and continued playing small tours in 2005 with Geno Lenardo from the band Filter.[20][3] In 2006 Chevelle supported Nickelback for an arena tour across the United States, with a new permanent bassist, the Loeffler brothers' brother-in-law and longtime friend, Dean Bernardini.[20][30]

In 2006, the band recorded their fourth studio album titled Vena Sera. The album was the first album Chevelle recorded with Bernardini.[31] Vena Sera was released in April 2007, debuting at No. 12 on the Billboard 200, and sold 62,000 copies during its first week of release.[3][32] The title of the album translates to "vein liquid" in Latin, representing the blood Chevelle put into making the album, according to Pete.[33]

Corey Apar of AllMusic states that "Vena Sera probably won't disappoint fans, and it didn't, if for the sole fact that it basically sounds just like Chevelle's other albums". He noted that the song "I Get It" "has a relatively lighter underbelly than the rest, which is a nice change of pace, but it's ultimately too little, too late".[31] "Well Enough Alone", the first single from the album, was written about the departure of Joe Loeffler, and reached No. 4 on the Mainstream rock charts.[15] Chevelle toured with Evanescence, Finger Eleven, and Strata during March and April 2007, followed by a headlining tour with the latter two bands in May and June.[20] The second single from the album, "I Get It", was released on June 12, 2007, and a video for the song debuted on MTV on November 27, 2007.[34] In July of the same year Chevelle toured Australia as a supporting act for the band The Butterfly Effect.[35] On the tour in Australia, Chevelle's band manager Rose died of cancer, much to the distress of the band.[33]

On May 9, 2007, during a show in Fort Worth, Texas Chevelle's trailer containing all of the band's equipment was stolen from the hotel at which the members were staying.[36] The band posted a notice saying, "Most items are labeled 'Chevelle' and if you notice anything suspicious on eBay or other online resellers selling 'authentic' Chevelle items... guitar, basses, drums, amplifiers, risers, backdrops, tee shirts... please call the police..." A month later in an interview, Sam Loeffler stated, "Of the 14 guitars, we got two of 'em, and then we got some amplifiers back and our monitor system. So it's really, I mean it's cool because it's kind of like Christmas, only really weird. People have been calling us and saying, 'Hey, I bought this or that', and you know, we're just doing our best to buy it back from them. And certainly the issue is not a money issue, it's about having the pieces of gear that you did all your records with."[36]

In 2009, Chevelle entered a studio in Nashville, Tennessee with producer Brian Virtue. Sam Loeffler stated, "We have spent a lot of time making these songs something different from past records without losing the core of our passion. We are a hard rock, melodic band and it's still what drives us as musicians."[37] The new album, titled Sci-Fi Crimes was released on August 31, 2009, peaking at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 album chart with sales of about 46,000, the highest entry onto the chart to date for the band.[3][38] The album was praised by Jared Johnson of AllMusic for taking a step in a new direction in regards to the lyrics.[39] Pete Loeffler normally wrote lyrics about personal subjects, however on Sci-Fi Crimes, he wrote of stories including apparitions, conspiracy theories, and erratic sleeping conditions.[39] The tour following the release of Sci-Fi Crimes was in the late 2009. Opening for Chevelle on this tour was Halestorm, Adelitas Way, and After Midnight Project.[40][41]

Recent activity (2010–present)Edit

In January 2011, Chevelle released a live CD/DVD comb:, Any Last Words.[38] The release was part of Chevelle's ten-year anniversary as a recording band. As a special offer for fans, part of the pre-order package included a T-shirt and the fans' name in the 'thank yous' part of the album booklet.[38]

At the end of 2011, Chevelle released Hats Off to the Bull, their sixth studio album.[42][43] The album's first single was titled "Face to the Floor", which reached No. 3 on Billboard's Rock songs chart.[44] The album debuted at No. 20 on the Billboard charts and sold 43,000 copies in its first week of release.[45] Joe Barresi, who produced Hats Off to the Bull said of the album, "Rather than simply subscribing to a tried-and-true formula, they made a conscious effort to incorporate new sounds and textures into their patented airtight anthems. As a result, Hats Off to the Bull is one of the group's most infectious and impressive offerings to date."[45] AllMusic reviewer Gregory Heaney stated the album is "Heavy and dramatic, the album is packed full of tightly coiled, muscular riffs, giving the album a controlled feeling more like a slow burn than an explosive, cathartic release."[42]

Also, a compilation album of band favorites called Stray Arrows: A Collection of Favorites, was released to stores on December 4, 2012.[46][47] The compilation includes 11 songs and a previously unreleased track titled "Fizgig".[46][47] The Best Buy version has 15 songs and the track "Fizgig".[46]

After wrapping up touring in support of Hats off to the Bull in 2013, Chevelle entered the studio to record their seventh album, re-teaming with Joe Barresi to produce the album.[48] Recording and production finished early in 2014, and the band announced on February 1 that the album, to be released April 1, 2014, would be titled La Gárgola (Spanish for "the gargoyle").[49][50][51] Lead singer Pete Loeffler describes that the album is about "the dark underbelly of American culture."[52] The first single from the album, titled "Take Out the Gunman", debuted on February 3 on the band's Vevo and YouTube Channel,[53] with the single being released the next day.[50][54][55] The other singles from the album are "Hunter Eats Hunter" and "An Island".[56][57][58] The album reached the top of the Rock Album chart in April 2014.[59]

In an interview with 105.7 The Point on May 23, 2015, the band stated that after their last show of their tour in St. Louis, they would focus on writing new material, and that future work would be moving in a heavier-sounding direction.[60]

On May 10, 2016, the band announced that their new album will be titled The North Corridor, which was released on July 8, 2016.[61][62] The first single from the album is "Joyride (Omen)" which became their fifth song to reach No. 1 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks.[63][64] The others two singles from the album are "Door to Door Cannibals" and "Rivers".[65][66] In October 2018, Chevelle released a compilation album titled, 12 Bloody Spies, featuring B-sides, covers, rarities, and remixes.[1][67][68][69] On September 20, 2019, Bernardini announced his departure from the band.[70][71]

In June 2019, the band announced that they entered the studio with long-time producer Joe Barresi.[72] Along with the announcement drummer Sam Loeffler said they have been writing material a year-and-a-half, meaning the process of making this album has taken longer than usual.[72] In an interview with KCAL 96.7's RadioActive Mike Z. in September 2019, vocalist Pete Loeffler stated:

"We went really dark on the last two [albums], really heavy and more metal. That’s personally where I like to be and I want to live on stage, but this record [Barresi] was like, ‘Let’s try to do some melodic stuff,’ so I went down that road."[72]

On November 8, 2020, the band released an acoustic version of the new song "Endlessly".[72] The band released a music video for their new song, "Self Destructor" on January 8, 2021.[73][74][75] The song is the lead single from their upcoming ninth studio album, Niratias (an acronym for "Nothing is real and this is a simulation")[76] which was released on March 5, 2021.[73][74][75] On January 29, 2021, the band released the second single from the album, "Peach".[77] On February 19, 2021, the band released the third single from the album, "Remember When".[78] On March 8, 2021, the band announced that ÆGES guitarist and vocalist, Kemble Walters is their new touring bassist.[79]

In a March 17, 2021 interview with Loudwire, Pete Loeffler states that despite the band selling over six million albums, they haven't gotten any money out of it. The money all went back to Epic. He blames it on signing a bad contract early on in his career.[80] On May 1, 2021, the band released a music video for the song "Mars Simula".[81][82] "Self Destructor" is included in the 2021 film, Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard.[83] The band toured in September and November 2021 in promotion of the album, calling the tour, "The Niratias Tour" [84]

Musical style and influencesEdit

Chevelle has been classified as hard rock,[1][2][85][86][87][88] alternative metal,[1][3][89][90] post-grunge,[1][91][92][93] alternative rock,[94][95] nu metal,[96] and indie rock.[1] The band's debut album Point #1 has been described as indie rock.[97] The band's most popular albums, Wonder What's Next and This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In), are both described as nu metal.[98][99]

Their primary musical influences as stated by the band members are Helmet, Tool, and The Cure.[100][101][102] Chevelle has frequently been compared to Tool throughout its career, specifically when the band released its music video for "Mia" featuring a claymation doll throughout the video, much like the Tool music video for "Sober" or "Prison Sex".[103] Pete Loeffler's singing voice was stated to sound a "tiny bit" like that of Tool's Maynard James Keenan, and the band's music has been compared to Tool's "dark" tone of music.[100]

Despite comparisons to Tool, many critics such as Andree Farias and Andy Argyrakis of Christianity Today and Robert Rich of The Daily Texan have stated Chevelle as having a unique sound to their music.[24][25][100] The Daily Texan described their music as "a kind of controlled chaos, a beautiful darkness, a gentle rampage of aural velocity", and drew away from the band's comparisons to Tool by stating "Tool have always embraced their experimental side and released scathing social commentaries and criticisms, while Chevelle write radio-friendly tunes with subtly deep meanings, but with overtones easily grasped by any listener."[100] Andree Farias of Christianity Today has reviewed Chevelle's first three albums, praising them as "commanding vocals over jolting guitars and chest-thumping bass beats."[24]
