Chevelle is an American alternative metal band that formed in 1995 in Grayslake, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. The band was originally composed of brothers: Pete Loeffler (lead vocals and guitar), Sam Loeffler (drums and percussion) and Joe Loeffler (bass and backing vocals). When Joe left the band in 2005, Geno Lenardo subbed-in as the bassist until he was replaced by Pete and Sam's brother-in-law, Dean Bernardini.
Chevelle has sold over four million albums in the United States. The band's first studio album, Point #1 was released on a small record label called Squint Entertainment. Chevelle's second album, Wonder What's Next (October 8, 2002), was certified Platinum by the RIAA after a debut at No. 14 on the United States albums chart, Billboard 200.
