CHEVELLE's video for the song "Door To Door Cannibals" can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's latest album, "The North Corridor", which came out last July.
CHEVELLE frontman Pete Loeffler told Billboard about "The North Corridor": "I had a really good grasp on what I wanted it to sound like. I talked with the guys and said, 'I really want to make a really heavy record this time around, go back to our [2002's] 'Wonder What's Next' roots a little bit. And it's what we like to play live, so it just made sense. Sam [Loeffler, drums] and Dean [Bernardini, bass] love heavy music as well; Sam likes a lot of hardcore, screamo stuff, so he was happy with that. They basically let me go and agreed that heavy was a good way to go."
"The North Corridor" was released via Sony Music. The CD was helmed by Joe Barresi, the American record engineer and producer who has previously worked with bands such as KYUSS, MELVINS, TOOL and QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE.
"This record was not easy. This record was tough," Pete Loeffler told Billboard. "I basically didn't know if we were ever gonna finish it. It was almost like I wasn't happy with anything. There were a few songs that I knew were great ideas, and yet I couldn't put them out the way they were, so we actually had a point of crisis in the studio. We had some depressing moments there. I literally left L.A. without ('Last Days') done and I came home and worked on it at my house and added all these new parts and emailed them off to Joe Barresi. I think I was over-complicating the whole thing but I'm happy that it worked out."
