A new video featuring Vater drumstick artist Sam Loeffler of CHEVELLE can be viewed below. Sam talks about his background, what he does when not on tour, how the music industry has changed over the years, why he uses the Vater 5B model and a bunch more.
CHEVELLE's most recent release, "Sci-fi Crimes", debuted at No. 6 on Billboard's Rock Chart, the highest entry on the chart for the band. "Sci-fi Crimes" has already produced two top 10 singles in "Jars" and "Letter From a Thief". "Jars" peaked on the Hot Mainstream Rock Chart at No. 2 while "Letter From a Thief" peaked at No. 5.
CHEVELLE is getting ready to celebrate its "Ten in 10" anniversary as a look back at the band's top ten greatest hits over the past 10 years. Those hits include "The Red", "Send The Pain Below", "Closure", "Vitamin R", "The Clincher", "Well Enough Alone", "I Get It", "The Fad", "Jars" and "Letters From A Thief". In an effort to give back to the fans that made it all possible, the band will perform two nights in its hometown at The Metro in Chicago on October 29 and October 30, the venue where it got its start a decade ago.
Over the past 10 years, CHEVELLE has taken rock music to another level; their dark, ominous lyrics and unique sound combined with rich overtones make a statement that is hard to ignore and separates them from the rest of the modern rock scene. "Ten in 10" celebrates all of the band's accomplishments and is a look back on their successes while continuing to move forward towards a bright musical future.
