Multi-platinum Epic Records recording artists Chevelle had its new album Sci-Fi Crimes debut at #6 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and at #3 on the digital albums chart. Their previous best chart entry was 2004’s This Type Of Thinking (Could Do Us In) which entered at #8.
The band’s first single from their new album “Jars” is a top ten smash at modern rock radio.
Chevelle continues a national headlining tour in support of the album’s release.
Sci-Fi Crimes is the follow up 2007’s smash album Vena Sera. The Chicago-based trio spent seven weeks co-producing Sci-Fi Crimes with Brian Virtue (Jane’s Addiction, 30 Seconds to Mars, Deftones) in Nashville, Tennessee.
Formed in 1995, the Chicago-based band has remained a staple in the rock scene with six Top 5 Modern Rock hits under their belt, including the #1 songs “Send the Pain Below” and “Vitamin R (Leading Us Along)” as well as fan favorites, “The Red” and “The Clincher”. The band is made up of Pete Loeffler (vocals, guitars), brother Sam Loeffler (drums), and brother-in-law Dean Bernardini (bass).
