Biography

Grayslake, Chicago IL, United States (1994 – present)

Chevelle is an band from Grayslake, IL. They formed in 1994 with the members of Sam Loeffler, Pete Loeffler (brothers) and Matt Scott. Matt was later replaced in 1996 by Joe Loeffler as bass player. On July 10, 2005 Joe was fired because of “irreconcilable differences”. Geno Lenardo (Filter) filled in until August 2005, when Dean Bernardini (brother-in-law to the Loefflers) became the new bass player of Chevelle.

Inspired by the lurching riffs of Helmet and the soft/loud vocal styling of Tool, Chicago-based trio Chevelle’s aggressive, heavy sound is all about mounting tension exploding into raw guitar bursts. They started out playing parties and outdoor events, which quickly led to bookings at Chicago clubs when youngest member Joe was just 16.


Chevelle released their first studio album titled Point #1, on May 4, 1999.
Chevelle recorded a demo known as The Blue Album, and played small concerts for the next three years until they were signed on to Steve Taylor’s Squint Entertainment.[4] The band recorded for 17 days in Electrical Audio studios, and in 1999, Chevelle released the album, Point #1 which was produced by Steve Albini.


Chevelle released their second studio album titled Wonder What’s Next, on October 8, 2002.
Released three years after Point #1 and following tours with bands like Filter, Sevendust, Powerman 5000, and Machine Head — the band had inked a deal with Epic and issued Wonder What’s Next, released in August 2002.

    La Gárgola is such a great album. It gets better with every listen.

    @Jureiko Respectable opinion. Not everyone likes Chevelle but I don't know why Yello and Supermax are better bands

    I don't mean to be rude but seriously I don't get why you guys like this band. I like some of their big hits but the rest is so boring, generic and forgettable. And the singer copies Maynard Keenan so much it's fucking annoying.

    Saw them in Seattle two nights ago... just fucking AMAZING. Perfect performance and energy on stage. Pete's vocals are numbing. LOVE 'EM! Can't believe they played "Envy", kicked almighty ass.

    The CD player in my car stopped working so I've been forced to listen to the radio while driving for the past few weeks ... "Take Out The Gunman" is the best thing I've heard so far... This band is talented, I'm a new fan.

    I didn't like La Gargola at first. It was in your face hard edgy riffs that caught me off guard. but, after multiple listens it started to grow on me like their previous albums did (Sci-fi Crimes, Hats off to the Bull). I can honestly say this is their tight sounding album so far. Good Job Chevelle!
