Chevelle are back with the first single from 'La Gargola,' their new studio album due out April 1st, 2014 . Listen to the brand new song 'Take Out the Gunman' here.

Chicago rock trio Chevelle re-teamed with producer Joe Barresi for their seventh full-length studio album 'La Gargola,' which is Spanish for "The Gargoyle." Barresi also produced the band's previous effort 'Hats Off to the Bull.' The official release date is set for April 1st, and a tour in support of the album is likely to follow.

The group's previous outing with Barresi pushed them in some new directions sonically, and 'Take Out the Gunman' seems to showcase a step further in that evolution. The song has an incredibly subtle beginning that even incorporates cowbell, which is not characteristic of a Chevelle radio single. Despite its soft launch, the song eventually goes to that place most good Chevelle tracks do -- to a heavy ass groove coupled with a catchy melodic hook. There's some tasty riffage in there as well. If this a sign of what's to come, we're all in.
