Global rock band CHEVELLE reveals new single ‘Self destructor‘ and announce new album ‘NIRATIAS‘ In March
The new single ‘Self destructor‘ Primed to take over airwaves, it will officially impact Active Rock radio next week and will be featured as iHeartRadio’s World Premiere on all of iHeart’s Active Rock stations, playing every three hours. In addition, earlier today Chevelle shared the official music video.
Tossing and turning between moments of heavy catharsis and alternative hypnosis, “Self destructor” hinges on a nimble guitar riff and throttling drums. Pete’s voice careens from hard-hitting verses towards a sweeping refrain uplifted by a haunting high register. The sci-fi music video for the track perfectly complements its mood. The near six-minute cinematic clip follows the duo on the search for truth. Dressed in black suits and ties like G-men, they trace the steps of a ghostly astronaut deep into the woods.
Teaming with longtime producer Joe Barresi [Tool, Queens of the Stone Age], Chevelle recorded throughout 2019 and 2020 and pieced together an intriguing and inimitable body of work, with themes that will reveal themselves soon.
The album artwork, releveled today, is by Boris Vallejo. The famed and award-winning artist is responsible for the posters used for films like Knightriders and National Lampoon’s Vacation, as well as iconic 70’s and 80’s science fiction novel covers and magazines (such as Heavy Metal).
