NIRATIAS stands out as the band’s most pummeling and provocative record yet. Teaming with longtime producer Joe Barresi [Tool, Queens of the Stone Age], Chevelle recorded throughout 2019 and 2020 and pieced together an intriguing and inimitable body of work, with themes that will reveal themselves over each track. 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 nearly half-a-billion streams, earned seven 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 , Hats Off to the Bull, La Gárgola , and The North Corridor . The latter two each captured #1 on the Top Rock Albums Chart.
With NIRATIAS, get ready to lift off with Chevelle as they elevate into another stratosphere in 2021.
