Chevelle have set a December 6 release date for their new album Hats Off To The Bull and they will celebrate the release with an appearance Thursday, December 8 on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” (11pm central).
The first single from this their sixth full-length album will be the track “Face to the Floor.” “It’s an angry song,” says lead singer Pete Loeffler.
“The lyrics are about all the people who have been taken advantage of. I reference Bernie Madoff and his Ponzi scheme. He raked people over the coals, stole and is a terrible person. One day, these people have everything, and the next day it’s completely gone.”
This summer, Chevelle hunkered down in a Los Angeles studio with producer Joe Barresi [Queens of the Stone Age, Coheed and Cambria]. During the sessions, nothing was off limits, and boundaries were non-existent. Rather than simply subscribing to a tried-and-true formula, they made a conscious effort to incorporate new sounds and textures into their patented airtight anthems. As a result, Hats Off To The Bull is one of the group’s most infectious and impressive offerings to date.
