the official press release from The Knitting Factory:
Inspired by the lurching riffs of Helmet and the soft/loud vocal dynamics of Tool, the Chicago-based trio Chevelle formed in 1995 with an aggressive, heavy sound. Comprising brothers Sam (drums), Pete (vocals, guitar), and Joe Loeffler (bass), the band began playing parties and outdoor events, which quickly led to bookings at Chicago clubs when youngest member Joe was just 14-years-old. In 1999, Chevelle released their Steve Albini-produced debut album, Point #1, on Squint Entertainment. Three years later — and following tours with bands like Filter, Sevendust, Powerman 5000, and Machine Head — the band had inked a deal with Epic and issued Wonder What’s Next, released in August 2002. The album went platinum by the following summer, propelled in part by its second single, “Send the Pain Below,” which became a number one hit on modern rock and mainstream radio. Main stage dates with the annual Ozzfest tour followed that summer, and 2003 brought a concert album, Live from the Road. Chevelle returned in the fall of 2004 with their third full-length effort, This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In), and with it came another hit song, “Vitamin R (Leading Us Along).” Joe parted ways with his brothers in July 2005, and though he was replaced on bass a month later by Dean Bernardini, Chevelle remained a family affair, since Bernardini was the siblings’ brother-in-law. With the new member came a newfound energy and optimism, and the guys carried that spirit into the recording of their next two albums, 2007’s Vena Sera and 2009’s Sci-Fi Crimes. The following year, the band celebrated their 10-year anniversary in the music business with a pair of live shows in Chicago, later released on a DVD Any Last Words.
