CHEVELLE Slowly Recovering Stolen Gear

Launch Radio Networks reports: CHEVELLE has recovered a large amount of the equipment it lost when the band's trailer was stolen outside a hotel in Dallas last month, with the trio hoping to reclaim even more. Drummer Sam Loeffler filled Launch in on the positive turn of events. "We got about half of it back," he said. "Of the 14 guitars, we got two of 'em, and then we got some amplifiers back and our monitor system. So it's really, I mean it's cool because it's kind of like Christmas, only really weirder. People have been calling us and saying, 'Hey, I bought this or that,'and you know, we're just doing our best to buy it back from them. And certainly the issue is not a money issue, it's about having the pieces of gear that you did all your records with."

CHEVELLE had asked fans after the May 9 theft to keep an eye out for its gear being sold through eBay and other online dealers.

The group has been working with police to capture a suspect in the crime.

CHEVELLE finished up a headlining tour in support of its fourth album, "Vena Sera", on Wednesday night (June 13) in St. Paul, Minnesota. The latest single from the CD is called "I Get It".
