Chevelle Get Reflective With Spiraling New Song ‘Remember When’

When feeling like you’re nowhere, your past will help center you. That’s the idea that Chevelle are putting out there with their new single, “Remember When,” the third track to come from their upcoming album NIRATIAS.

The track itself relies heavily on Pete Loeffler‘s spiraling guitar line and the propulsive beats of brother Sam Loeffler on drums. The song drifts along with Pete’s pained and strained emotional vocal as he cautions “Remember your youth instead / When you’re drifting off to nowhere.” The full lyrics for the track can be viewed below:

Chevelle, “Remember When” Lyrics

Nowhere

Remember you’re souvenirs
The memory’s fuel in space
When you’re drifting off to nowhere

Nowhere

Remember when
We’re right side up
Yet I’m falling off

The hope was to fool yourself
To suffer was worth the cause
As we’re drifting off to nowhere

Nowhere
Nowhere

Remember when
We’re right side up
And yet I’m falling off

Remember when
Remember your youth instead
When you’re drifting off to nowhere
Nowhere

Nowhere
We’re right side up
And yet I’m falling off

Remember when
Remember your youth instead
When you’re drifting off to nowhere
Nowhere

Nowhere

You can also get a closer look at the lyrics in a space-themed lyric video which has the words spooling out over the stars. Check that out at the bottom of this post.

“Remember When” is the third track to come off the NIRATIAS album, following the aggressive lead single “Self Destructor” and its unnerving follow-up track “Peach.” All three tracks will be featured on the NIRATIAS set, which is due to arrive on March 5.

Pre-orders for the album are currently available at this location.

These are good times for Chevelle as their back catalog has been getting some love as well. On Jan. 15, five of their singles – “Vitamin R (Leading Us Along),” “Jars,” “I Get It,” “Face to the Floor” and “The Clincher” – were all certified as gold singles by the RIAA. That represents over 500,000 equivalent units sold.

Chevelle Chug Along With Unsettling Rocker ‘Peach’

Chevelle are back in all their distorted and lurching glory with the new song “Peach” today (Jan. 29). The song is the second track to be released from their forthcoming album, NIRATIAS. Check it out in the visualizer below.

As has previously been mentioned, the band’s new album has a significant theme dealing with space and the visualizer mirrors a bit of that seemingly keeping the visual floating through outer space and looking at stars, galaxies and planets.

The track unspools in Tool-esque fashion with chugging and lurching guitars, hard hitting drums and a little unsettling lyrical narrative that is a total rocking slab of music. Have a look at the “Peach” lyrics below:

Chevelle, “Peach” Lyrics

Who do you trust now
They’ll take your arms now
Then take your legs off
Then take my hands now
Who do you trust now
They’ll take your arms now
Then take your legs off
Then take my hands

Way out alone
I sat up cold
Can feel those crooked claws
Steal hope

Little man
Little man I guess
Little hands
Show your taste
For all the gold in nome

Gentleman, he says, just grab that peach
Who will know, who do you trust
Who do you

Who do you trust now
They’ll take your arms now
Then take your legs off
Then take my hands now
Who do you trust now
They’ll take your arms now
Then take your legs off
Then take my hands

Who do you trust
Who taught you…

No conscious
No conscious
This narcissist with his conscious fits
No conscious
No conscious
This narcissist with his conscious fist

Who do you trust now
They’ll take your arms now
Then take your legs off
Then take my hands now
Who do you trust now
They’ll take your arms now
Then take your legs off
Then take my hands now

“Peach” follows on the heels of the recently released lead single “Self Destructor” that arrived earlier this month. Both tracks will appear on the NIRATIAS (Nothing Is Real and This Is a Simulation) album, which will be released by Epic Records on March 5. Pre-orders for the album are available at this location while you can pick up “Peach” specifically here. You can take a look at the artwork and track listing below.

There are good times for Chevelle as their back catalog has been getting some love as well.

25 Best Hard Rock Albums of 2011

The rock world was still finding fresh footing at the top of the 21st century’s second decade. The year 2011 provided some quality records, but in most cases the veteran acts were adding solid selections to their established catalogs rather than turning in their best works.

That said, Foo Fighters gave us arguably their best record since the ’90s with Wasting Light and bands such as Seether, Five Finger Death Punch and Rise Against continued to churn out high quality rock radio gems. The Black Keys showed they were no one-album wonder and prolific rockers Korn decided to shake things up by taking their sound into a new area.

The year also saw the emergence of Black Veil Brides, the returns of Bush and Blink-182 and so much more. Join us as we reflect on the best rock albums of 2011 in the gallery below. And to see the best metal albums of 2011, head here.
