Since the commercial success of 2004’s gold-certified This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In), Chevelle has taken a less mainstream approach with their last few albums, but the Illinois trio is still charting album sales worldwide and touring on such modern-rock success.
Founding brothers Pete and Sam Loeffer, along with bassist Dean Bernardini, are hitting up a number of northwest dates – including Vancouver next Wednesday at the Commodore Ballroom – in support of their sixth studio album, last year’s Hats Off to the Bull. The latest single, the album’s riff-rampant title track, is almost a surefire opener for what is to be a hard-rocking evening.
The band’s set is will likely include such heavy hits as “The Clincher” and “Closure”, along with cuts like “Well Enough Alone” from Vena Sera, “Letter from a Thief” from 2009’s Sci-Fi Crimes and “Mia” off their 2000 debut Point #1.
Keep your fingers crossed for the band’s encore to end the show with the U.S. alternative and mainstream smashes “Send the Pain Below” and “Vitamin R (Leading Us Along)” from the band’s breakthrough sophomore record, Wonder What’s Next. As veterans of the modern rock genre, Chevelle won’t disappoint when they take over 868 Granville Street.
