In October Chevelle will bring their brand of heart-thumping drums and dark-overdriven guitar riffs back to the UK in support of their new single ‘Hunter Eats Hunter’. Taken from their latest album ‘La Gárgola’ the track will be released on 20th October ahead of the band’s upcoming 3 date UK tour. These shows will see the band taking in Manchester, Birmingham as well as returning to London after last year’s sold date at the Islington Academy.
Chevelle were last seen on these shores earlier this year where they delivered an exhilarating performance at Download Festival, following the release of their latest album.
Released at the start of June through Epic – Sony Music, ‘La Gárgola’ (Spanish for The Gargoyle) was described as ‘ a sonic reinvention for the band’ by front man Pete Loeffler [guitars, vocals], ‘I don’t want Chevelle to sound like every rock band out there, I wanted to create something fun in a dark way.’
‘La Gárgola’ debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 album chart in the U.S becoming the band’s highest charting album. Produced by Joe Barresi [Queens of The Stone Age, Tool, Coheed and Cambria] songs like ‘The Damned’ and ‘Jaw Breaker’ characterize the prevailing feel of ‘La Gárgola’.
Formed by the Loeffler Brothers in Chicago, IL in 1995, Chevelle has sold over four million albums, including their major label debut ‘Wonder What’s Next,’ which went platinum. In their nearly 20-year career, they have notched twelve top ten rock radio hits in the U.S, including the chart-topping singles ‘Send The Pain Below,’ ‘The Red,” and ‘Face to the Floor.’
The band are represented by U.S management company In De Goot Entertainment, who recently opened an office in London and also take care of artists such as Halestorm, Black Stone Cherry, Theory of a Deadman and Shinedown.
