Chevelle Premiere The Video For “Face To The Floor”
Chevelle is a band that I didn't get into until late in their career. I had heard the name kicked around for years but never really checked 'em out until I heard "I Get It" on the radio. I had heard a couple of songs before that in passing but "I Get It" was the song that me "get it" (bad pun) when it came to Chevelle so I picked up Vena Sera and that pretty much sealed the deal for me.
So here we are at the end of 2011 and the news of the last few years has been the shaky economy and corporate corruption and Chevelle has seized the opportunity to speak out against the people responsible for our economic woes ( Bernie Madoff in particular) with their new album, Hats Off To The Bull.
"Face to the Floor" is the first single from the new album and the video fully embraces the concept behind the song and album. It took me a minute to realize, but if you watch the crawler along the bottom of the screen it's actually the lyrics to the song. Neat.
