"Shameful Metaphors", the new video from the Chicago-based trio CHEVELLE, can be viewed below. The clip was shot and directed by Frankie Nasso (MUDVAYNE, ALL THAT REMAINS, HELLYEAH) at the Dallas, Texas stop of this year's Carnival Of Madness tour. The band played the song only once and performed it to perfection. The video is beautifully shot and Nasso once again exhibits his pure talent as a music video director.
Commented CHEVELLE drummer Sam Loeffler, "We really wanted the fans to be a part of this new video, and we were really excited that everyone came down to the show and had a blast with us. This video shows us in our rawest form and it truly comes out during our performances and this video captures that."
"Shameful Metaphors" is the third single off CHEVELLE's most recent release, "Sci-fi Crimes", which 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.
