CHEVELLE'S STATEMENT ON THE DEPARTURE OF BASSIST JOE LOEFFLER "We've spent 10 great years building Chevelle, but irreconcilable differences have led to an unfortunate parting of ways between Joe and the band. Chevelle will return to the road for a string of summer shows, to be followed by writing sessions for a new album. Thanks to all of our fans, friends and family for their continued love and support. We look forward to seeing all of you on tour. Adds Joe Loeffler, "This will be positive for me and my brothers. I'm looking forward to all of the new opportunities this will make available to me."
