Chevelle Set Album Release and Kimmel Appearance

10/28/2011
.
Chevelle have set a December 6 lease date for their new album Hats Off To The Bull and they will celebrate the release with an appearance Thursday, December 8 on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" (12/11c).

The first single from this their sixth full-length album will be the track "Face to the Floor." "It's an angry song," says lead singer Pete Loeffler.

"The lyrics are about all the people who have been taken advantage of. I reference Bernie Madoff and his Ponzi scheme. He raked people over the coals, stole and is a terrible person. One day, these people have everything, and the next day it's completely gone."

This summer, Chevellehunkered down in a Los Angeles studio with producer Joe Barresi [Queens of the Stone Age, Coheed and Cambria]. During the sessions, nothing was off limits, and boundaries were non-existent. Rather than simply subscribing to a tried-and-true formula, they made a conscious effort to incorporate new sounds and textures into their patented airtight anthems. As a result, Hats Off To The Bull is one of the group's most infectious and impressive offerings to date.

"We're a melodic hard rock band, but we wanted to expand on what that means. It's really important to be aware of what you've done already," says drummer and Pete's brother Sam Loeffler. "We never want to write the same song twice. Pete writes 300 days a year. Joe encouraged us to try different instruments and techniques and he pushed us to continually play everything until it was right too. There are so many nuances as a result." Those nuances come through loud and clear as a talk box echoes through the hard-hitting title track, reverb adds schizophrenic vitality to "The Meddler," and an organ colors the acoustic "Won't Be Left Out" with ethereal flourishes.
