    I have been listening to them since the "Wonder what's next" album when the song "The Red" came out. They have always been consistent album after album. I find them to be quite underrated

    They are all brothers too. Amazing that they have stayed together for 15 years or so. Most bands that don't have relatives can't even seem to agree on things enough to stay together.

    I think one got kicked out - a brother in law?

    Great live band. Seen them a handful of times. Any Last Words is a great live album

    Edit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dean_Bernardini

    Dean Bernardini (born December 27, 1973 in Illinois) is the bass guitar player and backing vocalist for the hard rock band Chevelle, as well as being a brother-in-law to the Loefflers. He joined the band in 2005 after the departure of Joe Loeffler, who had been a member of the group since 1995. The cover of the 2009 album Sci-Fi Crimes was an original 24x48 oil on canvas painting created by Dean.

    Here's more:

    In June 2005 Chevelle announced that Loeffler was leaving the band "due to irreconcilable differences". According to Pete and Sam, Joe didn't care too much for the constant pressure that comes with touring. Sam said: "It's not a secret to anyone in the industry or any fans that ever talked to him that he hated traveling. That was the biggest player in our decision. It was kind of a mutual decision, but it kind of wasn't, because he didn't want to do it, but he also didn't want to quit, and we were just kind of like, 'If you don't want to do it, you can't do it, because it's affecting us'." So Pete and Sam felt that it would be for the best if Joe would "take a break to be home with family".

    On the other hand, according to Joe, he did not want to leave the band hanging like that. "The only way I'm staying home is if you fire me," he said. So they did. For some reason, it came as a shock to Joe, thinking that they wouldn't actually let him go. He took offense at Pete and Sam's remarks on their website as to why they let him go: "First off, very typical. This is exactly what I expected from them. Try and make it look like I didn't want to be in the band. I was fired, plain and simple; in fact, there wasn't even a discussion about it — they just dropped it on me. I told them I would never quit and they would have to fire me. They were trying to get me to quit and told my managers that I did. I called Sam and said, 'Why are you doing this?' and he said, 'We don't want you to come back.' I said, 'I will not quit.' The next day Pete called for the first time and said, 'Did (our managers) call you and tell you you're out?' I said 'No, were they supposed to?' He eventually said in that short conversation, 'You're fired'."

    "I am insulted by the message on the front page of the site (by the way, that's the first change to the site I've seen in at least a year!). It is completely false and out of line. I made no decision and am not taking a break. I will be working on getting a new job immediately. A break also means there's a chance to come back, and nothing could be farther from reality. I was fired and they have not said a word to me since. I would never ask to be back in (why would I want to after this?) and I never did in the past when I quit. 'We'll miss having him on the road with us.'... Right."

    i remember when The Red and send the pain below were played alot on radio....i was in college at the time...i didnt really care much for those 2 songs...i enjoyed quite a few other non-singles from their "wonder whats next" cd....same with "this type of thinking..." .....but then i got Vena Sera and thought nearly every song on it was good....then "sci fi crimes" which was even better.....now "hats off to the bull" and i cant stop listening to it...cant wait to see them live

    You're not alone. I've got a couple of friends that are really into them, but I've never heard a note of music that intrigued me. Sound like a post grunge leftover.

    Really good band. Its a shame they have to share the radio with so many modern rock bands that suck.

    I saw these guys a few times back in the day at some small places in Chicago before they became well-known. Pretty solid band. I used to work with their brother...the other brother who isn't a musician. Must be weird to be that guy!

    Haha! I saw this thread title and started to reminisce about the '65 Chevrolet Chevelle Malibu I had for several years.

    Really?  I've not followed them closely, but I bought their album Wonder What's Next after I saw them support Audioslave back in the day, to me it sounds like a straight cross between A Perfect Circle and early Deftones.

    Listened to This Type of Thinking a lot back in the mid 00's. A favorite during weight lifting. Didn't get in to the next few, but loved Hats Off and then La Gargola (I consider it their best album). Haven't really listened to anything since that one. Always really liked the lead singer's voice and their sound.
    It's a hopeless situation...
