Chevelle new tour/album to be so good it’s criminal

placeholder image

    Chevelle, the band behind such hits as “Vitamin R (Leading Us Along)” and “Send the Pain Below”, is a group who has quietly and with minimal controversy (or at times interest) ruled the modern rock charts for the better part of the entirety of the 2000s. Often indistinguishable to many fans from the screamy, Tool-lite bands of years past, the band hopes to emerge bigger and louder with a new album and subsequent tour.

    To be released on August 31st, Sci-Fi Crimes will be the band’s rock with a side of smarts follow up to the somehwat-smash hit Vena Sera. To get their claws into the ear drums and playlists of the angsty youth of America, the Chicago-based band has plans for those about to rock.

    On top of the tour and album (which was produced by Deftones and Jane’s Addiction genius Brian Virtue), the band will be releasing two videos with two endings of their first single “Jars”; version one hits MTV2 and MTVU on August 25th, with version two available on Yahoo the next day. And if that weren’t enough, the band will play a 30-minute set on September 3rd at the LaSalle Power Company to fans who purchase their album. Head here for more details.
