CHEVELLE Release New Album NIRATIAS, Out Now!





(New York, NY – March 5, 2021) – Today, multi-platinum rock band Chevelle unveil their anxiously awaited ninth full-length album, NIRATIAS [Epic Records]. It is available HERE

Prior to its arrival, the band unloaded a salvo of singles, all released to acclaim. Lead single “Self Destructor” has already eclipsed close to 5 million streams globally and over 1 million YouTube views on the music video. After emerging as the “#1 Most Added Song, it just broke into the Top 3 at Active Rock, adding to their robust catalogue of hits. Closing in on over 2 million streams, “Peach” garnered critical acclaim right out of the gate. Consequence of Sound praised it as “a grand musical statement from Chevelle.” Meanwhile, “Remember When” also continues to gain traction with Loudwire complimenting the track, noting it’s “spiraling guitar line and propulsive beats,” along with Pete’s “pained and strained emotional vocal.”


Today at 10 AM ET, a lyric video for “Endlesslly” will be available here:


NIRATIAS is an acronym for Nothing Is Real and This Is a Simulation, and it represents the band at their dimension-blurring best.  The body of work twists and turns through crushing guitars and haunting melodies like a cosmically heavy roller coaster at the edge of existence. The instrumental opener “Verruckt” sets the tone with its gnashing distortion and laser-precise groove. “So Long, Mother Earth” doubles as a eulogy for our planet carried by an overpowering scream and searing solo. Clocking in at almost six minutes, “Ghost and Razor” culminates on one final distorted exorcism before a pensive spoken word echoes barely above a whisper on “Lost In Digital Woods.


NIRATIAS stands out as the band’s most pummeling and provocative record yet. Teaming with longtime producer Joe Barresi, Chevelle recorded throughout 2019 and 2020 and pieced together an intriguing and inimitable body of work, with themes that will reveal themselves soon.  The album artwork is by Boris Vallejo. The famed and award-winning artist is responsible for the posters used for films like Knightriders and National Lampoon’s Vacation, as well as iconic 70’s and 80’s science fiction novel covers and magazines (such as Heavy Metal).


Throughout their career, Chevelle have transformed rock music as tried-and-true outliers. The multiplatinum Chicago rock band have generated close to 1.7 billion global streams, earned 11 number one hits, and sold out shows worldwide. Their catalog spans the double-platinum Wonder What’s Next highlighted by the double-platinum smash “The Red” and platinum “Send The Pain Below” as well as the platinum This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In) and gold Vena Sera. They’ve landed four Top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top 200, including Sci-Fi Crimes [2009], Hats Off to the Bull [2011], La Gárgola [2014], and The North Corridor [2016]. The latter two each captured #1 on the Top Rock Albums Chart.
