Good news Buzzhead, Chevelle has returned to the studio and are currently working on their seventh studio album.

The record, titled La Gargola, will be hitting stores on April 1, and you can check out the first single from the album, “Take Out the Gunman” below.

The single addresses the increasing controversy involving guns and mass shootings but drummer Sam Loeffler says it’s about more than just that, “It is hitting a little close to home. However, certainly it’s about that but the real point is about how the media sensationalizes it and how it perpetuates it, because we talk about it so much and concentrate on it so much, which is — when you put something on television, it just becomes bigger than life and then, you know, the age-old question is, if you don’t put it on TV and nobody knows about it, will it happen less? I don’t know.”

The group has also released a behind the scenes look at what it takes to make an album, which is also available for your viewing pleasure below.

In other news, Chevelle will set out on a headlining tour with Middle Class Rut and Oh Brother on April 4, although dates and venues have yet to be announced. Hopefully they stop somewhere close to us.

The band is also scheduled to perform at the Rock on the Range and Welcome to Rockville Festivals later this summer.
