Well figured I would restart a thread for these guys since the new album will be out this Tuesday! Hats off to the Bull is the name of the new album and all I have to say is it is their best material to date. Guitar solos, harmonies, organs, talk boxes and such have been used so they have stepped outside of their element just enough to show how much their maturity comes out in these songs.
1. Face to the Floor
2. Same Old Trip
4. The Meddler
7. Hats off to the Bull
10. Prima Donna
12. Indifference (Itunes bonus track)
13. Glimpse of the Con (Best Buy bonus track)
I recommend listening to Ruse, The Meddler, and Envy if you don't want to go through it in order.
agreed. this band is the best youre gonna get with safe radio rock nowadays.
is there a decent rip of this available yet?, only one I've found is a 128kb rip and was a pretty small file size so no doubt not that great a quality
There is a rip out there for 320... I'lll have to send it to you when I get a chance. From Chevelleonline.net
that would be great, just had my hard drive replaced and having to rip all
my cd's again and download everythin else that I've lost so every little bit helps lol
I enjoy some Chevelle... seen them 2 or 3 times in concert, they always put on a great show. I listened to the new album but it just sounded like the same old Chevelle to me, so nothing really jumped out at me on the first listen.
^^ Yea man, give it another listen through. Envy and Pinata defintely show a newer side to their sound. I would say Revenge is very Toolesque in my opinion. Plus, Pete is playing the bassline in that song
Just recently got into Chevelle like a month ago. A really good band that should get more recognition.
They get quite a bit of recognition. How many bands do you like that get as much radioplay.
Good time to get into them with the new album and all And you are right on the recognition part. They are popular and get radio play, but only with their singles. Every time I bring them up in a conversation, people are like "O those are the guys that wrote Send the Pain Below and The Red right?" Ugh I just want to hand plant my face when people say that. But I digress. And the Tool references need to finally stop with these guys IMO.

Soo, the guys are in the studio making a new record and I was really surprised to hear some synth in this preview. Really intrigued what they have up their sleeves this time around.
That clip sounds great. I think these guys get better with every album, Hats Off to the Bull being my favorite. Definitely looking forward to new music from them.
"You're rebirth can't hurt" - Closure
Family System fucken rocks as well
"I'm tired of your open mouth crawling inside my skin..." one of the best opening lines
Great band, Seen em a bunch live, was kinda underwhelmed by their live shows, although their studio work is great
This Type of Thinking is one of my all time favorite albums as well as Point #1
Point #1 I feel gets no fucken love
Dos is a great
I agree. HOTTB showed them branching off a little bit from what they're usually used to playing, but there are some real gems on that album. "Revenge", "Envy, and "Indifference" are my favorites from the bull era. I'd like to see them carry some of what they did on the previous album and mix that with what they are going to be doing this time around. Cannot wait for another update!
