Band Hits the Road on the Carnival of Madness Tour
(July XX, 2010) After 10 successful years in music, multi-platinum, Epic
Records recording artist Chevelle kicks off their â Ten in 10â
anniversary celebration as look back at the bands top ten greatest hits,
over the past 10 years which include The Red, Send The Pain Below, Closure,
Vitamin R, The Clincher, Well Enough Alone, I Get It, The Fad, Jars and
Letters From A Thief. In an effort to give back to the fans that made it all
possible, the band will perform two nights at the Metro in Chicago on Oct.
28 and 29th, the venue where they got their start a decade ago.
“After more than 10 years of writing and releasing records, we thought; what better place to come back to than the place where we were first inspired,” said Chevelle. “We saw our first real rock show at the Metro is 1988 and we thought it would be amazing to mark this point in our career with a show there.”
Joining Shinedown on the road for shows across N. America, the band will not only be celebrating but promoting the third single Shameful Metaphors from their current album. The Chicago trio has supplanted themselves as one of rocks most unique, successful and relevant alternative post grunge bands of the
decade, and is taking 2010 to celebrate with their fans.
To kick off the celebration, fans will have the opportunity to upload personalized video messages for the band on the newly created Happy Anniversary section of www.chevelleinc.com.
The most inventive fan message will win a signed guitar from the band making it the ultimate memorabilia. VEVO, the web’s leading premium music video and entertainment service, is also celebrating Chevelles
success by featuring their music as a premiere playlist as well as all Ten in 10 videos throughout the summer.
The VEVO platform includes VEVO.com, VEVO on YouTube and syndication partners like AOL and CBS
Interactive Music Groups sites. Since their major label debut with Wonder Whats Next, which was
certified Platinum by the RIAA, Chevelle’s sound has offered a distinct uniqueness that is not often found in commercial or mainstream music. The album featured hits like The Red, Send the Pain Below and Closure
