Stray Arrows: A Collection Of Favorites
Released: Dec 2012
Chevelle have never reached the level of superstardom reserved for the Nickelbacks and Korns of the world, but as Stray Arrows demonstrates, they've racked up their fair share of memorable hits. Far more important, they've achieved this while remaining dedicated to their personal take on Helmet/Tool hard rock intensity (chunky, brooding, bruising). In fact, some of the outfit's newer singles ("Face to the Floor," "Hats off to the Bull") are more intense than their older ones, which simply isn't how most bands evolve. Final track "Fizgig" was recorded especially for this collection.
