CHEVELLE Beginning Work On Eighth Studio Album

CHEVELLE Beginning Work On Eighth Studio Album

According to The Pulse Of Radio, Chicago-based trio CHEVELLE is in the process of beginning work on a new album. Frontman Pete Loeffler revealed via Twitter that the band is now in pre-production for the outing, writing, "Killer things happening in Pre production for new record today!! Voice/brain fried but ecstatic!!" The new disc will follow the group's seventh studio album, "La Gargola", which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard album chart in April 2014.

It's not clear at the moment how the band will be releasing the new album. "La Gargola" was the last on its original contract with Sony Music, and Pete Loeffler told The Pulse Of Radio at the time he was not sure how the band would proceed after that. "You know, in a perfect world, we'd like to just do it all on our own," he said. "I think that's what every band probably, after five or six records, probably wants to do. I mean, you want more control — I mean, I do. Hey, I'd love to put out my own music. If that can be possible, we would probably do it."

CHEVELLE has sold more than four million copies of its seven studio albums in the U.S. and scored 13 Top 10 hits at rock radio, including the chart-toppers "Send The Pain Below", "Vitamin R", "Face To The Floor" and "Take Out The Gunman".

The band is slated to play two Florida radio festivals this spring, in Orlando on April 23 and Tampa on April 29.
