Tech For Africa
CALLING ALL CHEVELLE FANS. . . . . . . . . . .
Today we are launching a special promotion in partnership with TECH FOR AFRICA.
TECH FOR AFRICA is an organization that has developed learning programs and tools to educate special needs children. This team of 8 is headed to the Khulani School, in rural South Africa next month.
The Khulani School is home to 300 students all with varying levels of disabilities. These students have no access to education without this special school. Most of these 300 students live at the school permanently and without schools like Khulani, there would be no place for special needs children to go as many are subject to cruelty and abuse if left in their villages.
This school and many others like it still lack essential tools such as books and technology. By using donated electronics that we are disposing of here in the western world, we can transform how the children are educated, and bring teachers the basic tools for modern learning.
Tech for Africa cannot achieve their goals without you, and with Chevelle urge you join this great cause.
Chevelle has reprinted and is selling a South Africa Shirt priced at only $15. All profits from the sale of every South Africa Tee will go directly to the Tech for Africa cause.

Thanks for the support,
No Pete Loeffler Signature PRS
Hey guys! You may or may not have noticed that Pete has been playing Fender guitars instead of his staple Paul Reed Smith’s this tour. We don’t know what caused him to change it up, but it was a suprise since Pete has been a loyal and outspoken endorser of PRS for over a decade. There were rumors and hopes that he was going to get his own signature Paul Reed Smith model that would be made available to purchase, but after a recent tweet, it seems those hopes have been snuffed out. Since Pete has converted many of us to PRS, it was disheartening to read. So let’s show those at Paul Reed Smith that there is a market for a Pete Loeffler signature guitar. Even if nothing comes of it, at least we can show them the impact he has had on their brand.

Chevelle Tops Pop!
Chevelle's new album La Gárgola has successfully debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200 list making it Chevelle's highest debuting album to date! The single Take Out The Gunman has also landed itself at the #1 spot of it's charts, making it Chevelle's fifth #1 single!
Chevelle Tops Pop?
With some massive buzz and momentum coming off of Chevelles recent release of their seventh studio album, La Gargola, the band finds themselves on a path to to the top of the carts. Their fifth studio album, Scifi Crimes, debuted at #6 on the charts. Already sitting as the number one selling CD on Amazon, La Gargola is quickly showing that it has the potential to overtake Scifi Crimes as Chevelles top debuting album. In an attempt to make the Billboard Top 200 list, Chevelle Online and Chevelle partnered up to trend the band on Twitter; encouraging people to buy copies of the album to bolster numbers, and hopefully setting record figures for the trio.
Keep up with all the stats for Chevelle singles and the entire album here:
Do you have the new album yet? Chevelle's new album is in the running to be on the billboard top 200 charts this week! La Gargola became available world wide on April 1st at Best Buy, Target, Wal Mart and other stores including online stores such as iTunes.
In a family of four girls and three boys, the boys seem to have balanced those numbers. In recent Loeffler family news that's been dwarfed by the release of La Gargola, Sam and Pete have recently been made aware of, and introduced to, the man that is claiming to be their long lost brother. But is another Loeffler brother really good news? This self acclaimed Loeffler has made some rather incredulous claims. To start, this new brother has been quoted as to stating that he sarted the band. The only reason he didn't continue with Chevelle is because he broke with the family for a while in search for an ancient artifact, an ancient musical artifact that would help create the perfect guitar music. Now that he is back, he wants to retake the band and create the perfect album. How legitimate are this mans claims? Can he really be trusted? I mean really, can you trust someone with a mustache like that?
