Chevelle To Headline SnoCore 2005

"We're going to be headlining SnoCore 2005, which starts in January in Vail, Colorado," Chevelle drummer Sam Loeffler said. "The guys who organize it wanted us to be a part, and they wanted our input in who we want on the tour with us. So we're going to be playing with Helmet and Crossfade."

In the time off between ending their trek with Korn and headlining the annual winter tour, Chevelle will spend time in their Chicago studio, where they have a host of projects lined up: re-recording "The Clincher," the second single off their album This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In), and maybe, just maybe, a solo acoustic album by Sam's brother, lead singer Pete Loeffler.

"We're going to be doing a whole lot in our studio. We want to record a live version of 'The Clincher' to send to radio stations along with the album version," Sam Loeffler said. "And Pete is going to do his own record. He's got seven to 10 acoustic songs already written, and it's really cool. Some of them are songs Pete originally wrote as Chevelle songs, but he figured that they'd be better off as intimate acoustic ones."

Sam said that his brother is planning a two-week solo acoustic tour sometime in 2005. But first there's SnoCore, and, of course, shooting a video for "The Clincher," This Type of Thinking's crunching opening tune.

"It's such a big, badass song, so the video has got to be equally badass," Loeffler said. "I've got some ideas for videos, but they're all really expensive. And my ideas always involve running from the cops. Which, actually, might be a really good fit for this song."
