Modern rock act Chevelle has made a concert album, “Live From the Road,” available exclusively via the Chevellebootlegs.com Web site. The material on the 10-song disc was captured during the band’s headlining performances and dates opening for the Foo Fighters. It features the rock radio smashes “Send the Pain Below” and “The Red” and cuts dating back to Chevelle’s 1999 debut, “Point #1,” including the title track and “SMA.”
“When we are playing live we try to sound as big and heavy as possible,” drummer Sam Loeffler writes on the site. “This live record is sort of a time capsule to what we have been doing and what we have been sounding like up to this point. Things will be changing as we go into writing our next record, so this was an important thing for us to get down.”
Epic will offer “Live From the Road” in wider release beginning Nov. 11. Fans can listen to sound clips from the set on the site. The group also has two live cuts on the upcoming Intoxication/Reprise CD/DVD “Music as Weapon II,” due Nov. 18.
Chevelle begins a six-week North American tour Nov. 1 in Cleveland, with S.T.U.N. and Campfire Girls in tow. Dredg replaces S.T.U.N. beginning Nov. 17 in San Diego. Loeffler told Billboard.com this summer that the group would likely hit the studio to record a new album early next year.
Here is the “Live From the Road” track list:
“Until You’re Reformed”
“Send the Pain Below”
“Wonder What’s Next”
“Grab Thy Hand”
