I sold a pair of Vans to Chevelle frontman Peter Loeffler at a skate shop in North Star mall in 2010. He was checking out the wall of shoes we had on display as he passed the front of the entrance and, long story short, he comes in the shop and cops a pair of Vans. Long before shopping for kicks with record label money, however, Loeffler and his brothers Joe and Sam formed their three piece alt-rock/nu- metal group in the mid-’90s in Illinois, just outside of Chicago. The band released a demo, jumped on the Christian label Squint and eventually released the album Point #1 which garnered attention from the Christian music community. Their second debut Wonder What’s Next however, which was released through Epic records, solidified their place in the alternative rock community and helped the band transition from their religious roots to secular rock arenas. Since then, the group has continued to write their heavily Tool-influenced alternative rock, release albums, and buy shoes from malls. On tour continuing their support of their latest release The North Corridor, Chevelle proves that sticking to the sound that got them big in the first place hasn’t been the worst idea. With Aeges.
