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.
