Hailing from Chicago's music scene, the rock band Chevelle
made their debut in 1999 with their album, "Point #1." The album helped put the band on the map, and they followed up with
their second studio album, "Wonder What's Next," which allowed them to breakthrough to the mainstream. Backed by popular singles
like "The Red" and "Send the Pain Below," the album went on to sell over one million copies, and it scored them a spot at
the 2003 Ozzfest. Taken from their live performances at Ozzfest, Chevelle later released a popular live album called "Live
From the Road."
With a new surge of popularity, Chevelle became a breakout band during this time. Their song, "The Red,"
hit the number 3 position on the Mainstream Rock charts, and it was frequently played on MTV, garnering even more exposure
for the band. By 2004, Chevelle released their next album, "This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In)," which entered the Billboard
200 chart at the number 8 spot. It was certified gold just six weeks later and was met with praise by fans. The album's first
song, "Vitamin R (Leading Us Along)," hit the number 1 position on the Mainstream Rock chart, and the album's other singles,
"Panic Prone" and "The Clincher," also fared well on the charts. Chevelle continued to impress critics and their fans with
their fourth studio album, "Vena Sera," which debuted at number 12 on the Billboard 200. The album went on to sell over 60,000
copies in its first week, and its single, "Well Enough Alone," hit the number 4 spot on the Mainstream Rock charts.
a slightly different approach with their next album, "Sci-Fi Crimes," Chevelle headed to Nashville and decided to record live
in the studio without using samples, in an attempt to capture the authentic live sound of the band. The result was a slightly
stripped-down version of their typical sound, but it effectively showcased the raw intensity of what Chevelle sounds like
live. "Sci-Fi Crimes" was a success, and it peaked at the number 6 spot on the Billboard 200.
Since their debut, Chevelle
has released consistently solid rock albums, with their most recent being "La Gargola," which was released in April of 2014.

on the Billboard 200. As Chevelle hits the road on their next tour, fans will get to hear new songs from the album, in addition
