Vena Sera is the fourth studio album by the American alternative metal band Chevelle and was released on April 3, 2007, through Epic Records. Many of the tracks on this album were based on material from unreleased songs the band had previously recorded. The term "Vena Sera" is Latin for "vein liquids" AKA "Blood."
Vena Sera is the first Chevelle album with bassist Dean Bernardini, the brother-in-law of fellow members Pete and Sam Loeffler. It would also be the second and final album produced by Michael "Elvis" Baskette, marking the first time Chevelle maintained the same producer for a second record.
The first single, "Well Enough Alone", was released to radio stations on February 13, 2007, but a physical CD single would not be available until March 6.
The album debuted at number 12 in the United States with sales of approximately 62,000. This was less than their previous album, This Type of Thinking (Could Do Us In), which debuted at number eight with sales of about 90,000. As of September 2008, the album has sold 353,740 copies in the United States.
