Song is second track from ninth studio album
Chevelle unleashes its latest single “Peach” as the second track from its anxiously awaited ninth studio album Niratias, available March 5th via Epic Records.
A thick and distorted riff powers “Peach” as the song dips in and out of a chugging groove and hypnotic vocals from singer and guitarist Pete Loeffler. After an explosive, yet entrancing scream, this barrage spirals out into spacey soloing. It only hints at the controlled and catchy aggression of Niratias though.
Chevelle set the stage for Niratias with the single “Self Destructor” earlier this month. On the heels of the band’s anticipated return, “Self Destructor” dominated Active Rock as the No. 1 Most Added Song and has since vaulted into the Top 20 of the format. Not to mention, it claimed coveted real estate on playlists such as Spotify’s New Music Friday, Rock Hard, and Just Hard in addition to occupying the No. 1 prime spot on Apple Music’s Hard Rock Hero and Hard Rock Hot Tracks. At Amazon, the guys graced the covers of the Rock Scene and Fresh Rock playlists. Thus far, it has racked up close to 875k Spotify streams and over 700k YouTube views on the music video.
Earlier this week, Chevelle released the album’s track listing, revealing 13 tunes that define the rockers’ most pummeling and provocative record yet. 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 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).
