Chevelle Laying Down Rough Draft of New Album

Chevelle bassist Dean is getting ready to lay down bass for a rough draft of the band's new album. His full update goes off on some tangents (to say the least), but is as follows:

"Tomorrow I go to our studio to put down what is now the last of the bass parts for this album's rough draft, and I thought it an appropriate time to let our loyal fans know what is going on. I don't know where you live, but in Chicago right now its pretty snowy and cold, and unless you own a large SUV or a pair of snow shoes you can't go anywhere, which can be a good thing for creativity, or you might be like Sam, who is more likely to build a huge jump and launch every type of motorized vehicle off of it. Whatever the case, cabin fever is not an option. I can always fall back on a game called peg (a primitive form of dodge ball) with my 1-year-old daughter. She's a sucker for the double pump. But unlike most games there's no reward, just good old fashion fun. Maybe some redness around the top of the head (joking) but I think we all enjoy a little something for our efforts for making it through another year. Although it may be a couple of months away, music is our gift to you even if you don't like it. Like the time my grandma gave me a cheese log for Christmas. She knew it was good for me, but I wanted a drum set. Well then, I think I have officially "rambled", but as my daughter says, "dewi dewi". I think it means "whatever" in baby talk, or "I crapped my pants". Either way, it won't be long before we are back to work and doing this thing all over again. So be safe and keep your pimp hand strong."

"And no, I didn't compare this album to a cheese log."

Saw them headline w/ taproot and black marya at The Riv, they were really good. One of the better rock bands out there...especially since most of them sound the same and write the same kind of songs.
