Chevelle Announce Tour Dates

In anticipation of the release of their sixth album, "Hats Off To The Bull", Chevelle has announced a new string of dates, including a couple high-profile radio shows (dates listed below). Before kicking off their fall trek, the group will perform two special "Project: Occupy Chevelle" gigs; the first in their hometown of Chicago on Tuesday, Nov. 29 at Subterranean and the second in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, Nov. 30 at the Rock and Roll Hotel. On Thursday, Dec. 8 Chevelle will perform live on ABC TV's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" On Saturday, Dec. 10 the group will join Blink-182, Incubus, Bush, Social Distortion, New Found Glory, 311 and Young The Giant for the sold-out 22nd annual KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas show. They'll follow up the KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas gig with a stop by the nationally syndicated radio show "Rockline" on Monday, Dec. 12. Working with producer Joe Barresi (Queens Of The Stone Age, Coheed And Cambria), Chevelle made a conscious effort to incorporate new sounds and textures into their patented airtight anthems. As a result, "Hats Off To The Bull" features the group's most infectious, intriguing, and impressive offering to date. "We're evolving," declares vocalist/guitarist Pete Loeffler. "The album is different, and it's going to take some people by surprise." "Face To The Floor" - a song that taps right into the current state of the public's growing mistrust of economic systems - is emblematic of the band's progression. A grinding riff snakes through a hypnotic haze as Pete rails against the corporate corruption of Bernie Madoff on one of the most explosive hooks of the band's career. Fans can also pre-order the album via their website or iTunes. Those that purchase on iTunes also get an extra, exclusive track titled "Indifference". Signed limited edition laminates and album downloads are also available via the band's official eBay store. Chevelle tour dates: 11/29 Chicago, IL @ Subterranean 11/30 Washington, DC @ Rock and Rock Hotel 12/02 Clemson, SC @ Littlejohn Coliseum 12/03 West Palm Beach, FL @ Cruzan Ampitheater 12/05 New Orleans, LA @ House of Blues 12/06 Houston, TX @ Verizon Wireless Theater 12/10 Los Angeles, CA @ Gibson Ampitheater 12/14 Austin, TX @ La Zona Rosa 12/15 Tyler, TX @ Click's 12/16 Biloxi, MS @ Mississippi, Coast Coliseum Thanks for the report to Noisecreep.com.

    Not the most original band, but they are very consistent and I enjoy all their albums. Good stuff.

    You are right, they are not re-inventing the wheel. I do think the way they construct a melody is rather refreshing. The strangest part is, eventhough they aren't doing anything truly new, it doesn't sound recycled or copied either. I rather like them and look forward to the new album, just wish I could get to the DC show but alas, no.

    What? I saw them at the MO state fair when they opened for shinedown and they killed! In all fairness chevelle is one of my favorite bands, but they put on a hell of a live show, and you can tell they hardly use any vocal effects in the studio which is refreshing. Can't wait for the new album!

    I've seen them twice, once after Vena Sera, and once after Sci-Fi Crimes. If anyone was disappointed with them live during their Vena Sera tour, give them another shot. I think they needed time to mesh with the new bassist, and the second time I saw them they were incredible.

    They have become a MUST SEE live show for me now. I recently saw them on the Bush/Filter tour and chevelle fans blew them away, they were the only fun band of the night because the crowd actually MOVED during their set. Seen too many rock shows lately where idiots just stand and bob their head and hold up their stupid camera phone.....atleast with chevelle their is an awesome PIT and they sound amazing. Come back to MIlWAUKEE!

    I've seen these guys a bunch of times in Milwaukee and every time has been awesome. They aren't the most original band but every album is solid.

    I've seen them before. They were disappointing. Although the venue might have had some to do with it.

    Like someone above me said, not the most original band, but they ARE one of the few nu-metal bands who actually have a good sense of melody. I wouldn't listen to them on a daily basis, but I respect what they do and that they remind me of Tool or APC.

    Well the vocals were good but I thought the guitars were too distorted. I couldn't even tell they were playing "The Clincher." But like I said it could've been the venue choice. It was in a small club that holds like 500 people.

    That may be the case...running a 100 watt amp may be a little overbearing lol
