CHEVELLE Frontman Wants To 'Stretch A Little Bit More' On Next Album

CHEVELLE singer-guitarist Pete Loeffler spoke to Billboard magazine about the progress of the songwriting sessions for the follow-up to 2016's "The North Corridor" album. "I have about nine demoed songs and a whole bunch of ideas that span the last decade," he said. "It's going to be the 10th full-length release for us, so I feel like we have to dig deep on this one. I want to stretch a little bit more — that doesn't always go over well with everybody, but we have to do it. We're creative beings. I think I could play five of these demo tracks that I have and fans would be into it, and the other four or five, I'm not sure. It will be interesting to see what people think."

CHEVELLE's album of rarities from 2002-2016, "12 Bloody Spies: B-Sides And Rarities", will be released on October 26 via Epic. The project's full collection spans everything from an acoustic version of "Sleep Apnea", off 2009's "Sci-Fi Crimes", to an unearthed bonus track off the now-classic "Wonder What's Next", titled "Until You're Reformed", and "A Miracle", recorded as a bonus track for "The North Corridor" in 2016.

CHEVELLE's 2014 album, "La Gargola", gave the band its highest chart debut (No. 3) and produced a No. 1 single on Billboard's Mainstream Rock chart in "Take Out The Gunman".

"The North Corridor" debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 album chart and produced another No. 1 Mainstream Rock single, "Joyride (Omen)". The disc featured songwriting by Pete, who was working with producer Joe Baressi through the Internet.
