Background

Consisting of bassist Sean Anderson, drummer Rob Gommerman, guitarists Rick Jackett and James Black, and singer Scott Anderson, the band formerly known as the Rainbow Butt Monkeys got their start by winning a local radio station talent show. The band used their prize money to record their debut album "Letter From Chutney." Soon after, Gommerman left the band and was replaced by Rich Beddoe and the band changed their name to Finger Eleven. They got signed to Mercury Label in Canada and was then signed to Wind-Up Records. In 1998, F11 released "Tip." Two years later, they released "The Greyest of Blue Skies," featuring the singles "Drag You Down" and "First Time." The album also contains the Depeche Mode cover "Walking in My Shoes." In 2003, the song "Sad Exchange" was featured on the Daredevil soundtrack. Later on that year, the band released their self-titled album, featuring the single "Good Times."

The Pulse of Radio reports that CHEVELLE has announced the first dates for its upcoming tour with Canadian act FINGER ELEVEN. The trek will kick off on February 19th in Flint, Michigan, with shows booked so far through mid-March. CHEVELLE has toured with FINGER ELEVEN before but drummer Sam Loeffler told The Pulse of Radio they're happy to hit the road with them again. "Even though we've done a couple of things together, it kind of worked really well and we all became friends, so yeah, we're gonna go out and do that again," he said. "We're gonna do some Canada stuff, which is good, 'cause we've only done a few Canada dates on this record cycle, so yeah, and then we'll do a bunch of U.S. dates and we'll keep looking at stuff as it comes up for the summer."

CHEVELLE is touring in support of its 2007 album, "Vena Sera", which features current single "I Get It" and the newly issued "The Fad".

Disturbed & Staind To Play Rolling Rock Town Fair

DISTURBED, STAIND and HOOBASTANK are among the acts that will participate in this year's Rolling Rock Town Fair.

The fifth annual edition of the music festival will happen on July 31 at Westmoreland Fairgrounds near Latrobe, Pennsylvania.

DISTURBED singer David Draiman told Launch Radio Networks that the band may book some other shows around the same time as the Town Fair.

"I'm thinking that we're probably going to set up some sort of a run revolving around that date, just to kind of keep ourselves in the game," he said. "You know, so that we're not just going down there and coming back, we'll probably play some shows along the way and along the way back."

An abbreviated version of The Town Fair will hit the road in Boston, Philadelphia and Seattle before coming back to western Pennsylvania, with slightly different lineups on all three shows. The June 12 show at Boston's Suffolk Downs will feature SEVENDUST, THREE DAYS GRACE, and FINCH, while FINGER ELEVEN will join those bands on June 19 at Penn's Landing in Philadelphia.
