Following the release of their latest album, ‘La Gárgola’ and an exhilarating performance at this year’s Download Festival in June, Chevelle have revealed the video for lead single ‘Take Out The Gunman’
Taken from 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,’ with heart-thumping drums and dark-overdriven guitar riffs.
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.
In October Chevelle will also play 3 UK shows taking in Manchester, Birmingham as well as returning to London after last year’s sold show at the Islington Academy. Tickets are on sale now.
