Really would love to do that.”

Sam Loeffler also added to the conversation. You can read all of what they had to say below. Are you excited to hear new material from the band?

Tell us what is coming up for the next couple of months and the rest of 2015 for Chevelle.

PL: We have a bunch of shows coming up… a lot of weekend things and then writing, hopefully get a new album out in the beginning of the new year. Really would love to do that.

SL: Yeah, if we can get off the road and keep enough, because every time we do a show like this one alone, it takes us a week just to prepare for one show because we have to rehearse four, five, six times. It’s not because we have to rehearse, it’s because that’s how you get out there and do this every day and know what you’re doing, because you practice a lot. That’s exactly it. So it takes a lot of time away from writing. To do one show it takes a week away.
