The Pulse of Radio reports that CHEVELLE has set September 8 as the release date for its fifth studio album, titled "Sci-Fi Crimes", according to HardDrive Radio. A first single called "Jars", which the band has been playing on recent live dates, will head to rock radio stations around June 23. Although there's been rumors that this is the heaviest CHEVELLE album yet, drummer Sam Loeffler told The Pulse of Radio he has a different view. "I think that production-wise it's different in that we used a lot more vintage amplifiers and things like that," he said. "I don't know that it's really a heavier record than any of our others. I actually think it's probably the opposite. But it's certainly still driving, melodic, hard rock music."In addition to "Jars", CHEVELLE has played "Letter From A Thief" and "Sleep Apnea" on some recent dates. The new disc will follow up 2007's "Vena Sera". The band is back home in Chicago now, but will get back out this summer on a tour with STAIND, beginning July 1 in Peoria.
