This preview first writer first saw Chevelle perform as a support act for Local H at the now-defunct…err…revived? (Who is anyone kidding, still defunct) Odeon Concert Club back in 2002. There couldn’t have been more than 150 people in attendance.

Fast forward all the way to 2003, Chevelle open for rock gods Foo Fighters at Time Warner Cable Amphitheater at Tower City Center in front of a sold-out crowd of 6,000+. By then, the band was hot on the heels of their debut record, ‘Wonder What’s Next,’ which spawned the platinum singles “The Red” and “Send the Pain Below.”

And, for those who wondered what’s next (see what I did there?) The band has gone on to have an incredibly successful career. Their sophomore follow-up, ‘This Type of Thinking Could Do Us In’ reached gold status. In 2011, ‘Hats Off to the Bull’ landed at #9 on the Billboard Top 200 and delivered “Face to the Floor.”La Gárgola’ crashed into the Top 5 at #3 and boasted “Take Out the Gunman.” 2016’s ‘The North Corridor’ represented new heights for the group, marking its fourth Top 10 bow on the Billboard Top 200.

Their primary musical influences as stated by the band members are Helmet, Tool, and The Cure. Chevelle has frequently been compared to Tool throughout its career, specifically when the band released its music video for “Mia” featuring a claymation doll throughout the video, much like the Tool music video for “Sober” or “Prison Sex”. Frontman Pete Loeffler’s singing voice was stated to sound a “tiny bit” like that of Tool’s Maynard James Keenan, and the band’s music has been compared to Tool’s “dark” tone of music. (Though lyrically, much brighter!)


Three Days Grace, Dorothy, and Diamante all serve as support. Git ur ass their early.
