Las Vegas, NV (May 5, 2014) – “Go creepy or go home,” Chevelle frontman/guitarist Pete Loeffler told Premier Guitar about the band’s live show which will continue this summer with an additional 20+ dates. In keeping with the darker sound on Chevelle’s latest album ‘La Gargola,’ the show features an ominous on-stage atmosphere (antiqued mannequin parts, antlers, a blood-red backdrop of factory smokestacks) and drop-C guitar tuning. Chevelle will play The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Saturday, July 12. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am at AXS.com.
The Chicago-based rock trio will perform a collection of hits from their two-decade career, as well as tracks off ‘La Gargola,’ which notched the band a #3 debut on the Billboard 200 (their career peak) and features the top ten Active Rock hit “Take Out the Gunman.”

Called their "tightest work" (AllMusic), a "sonic reinvention for the group" (Last.FM), and “their most potent, ear-punishing songs to date,” (Minneapolis Star Tribune) 'La Gargola' features electronic drum kits, stomp boxes, and vintage amps, and was “inspired by the dark underbelly of American culture” (Chicago Sun-Times). It was sonically influenced by Loeffler's appreciation of horror cinema including 'Rosemary's Baby,' ‘The Walking Dead,’ and 'Friday the 13th,’ as well as the band’s love of industrial metal pioneers Ministry.
Tickets, starting at $29.50 (plus applicable service fees), go on sale Friday at 10am at the Hard Rock Hotel Box Office, online at AXS.com or by calling 888-9-AXS-TIX.
