Chevelle drummer Sam Loeffler told a Des Moines, Iowa radio station that the band has commenced the songwriting process for the follow-up to 2016’s The North Corridor album. Loeffler added that two years of touring in support of The North Corridor has helped shape the direction of Chevelle’s new material. The North Corridor was Chevelle’s eighth studio LP and debuted at Number Eight on the Billboard 200 album chart and the disc produced another Number One rock single for the trio in “Joyride”. Chevelle will play the Kentucky State Fair in Louisville, Kentucky on August 23rd and the River City Rockfest in San Antonio, Texas on September 22nd. The latter will also feature Nine Inch Nails, Stone Temple Pilots, Bush and others.
