Chicago alternative hard rock trio CHEVELLE will return December 6 with HATS OFF TO THE BULL (Epic Records), their sixth full-length album. The album’s first single “Face to the Floor,” with its hypnotic, grinding riff, is one of the most explosive songs of the band’s career and is blanketing the airwaves nationwide. “Face to the Floor”–which rails against the corporate corruption of Bernie Madoff and Wall Street–is the greatest gainer at rock radio, entering the Top 10 at Active Rock and vaulting into the Top 20 at Mainstream Rock. The song also debuted at #2 on the iTunes Rock Singles Chart the week of release. As the #1 most added record at Active and Alternative Rock radio, “Face to the Floor” is a testament to the band’s songwriting prowess and eternal knack for a hit. Fans can pre-order the album now at: chevelleinc.com and on iTunes beginning November 1.
“It’s an angry song,” reveals lead singer PETE LOEFFLER about the inspiration for “Face to the Floor.” “The lyrics are about all the people who have been taken advantage of. I reference Bernie Madoff and his Ponzi scheme. He raked people over the coals, stole and is a terrible person. One day, these people have everything, and the next day it’s completely gone.”
