"Take Out the Gunman" is the lead single from Chevelle's seventh studio album, La Gárgola. The song debuted on February 3, 2014, via the band's Vevo and YouTube channel,[2] with the single being released the next day.[3][4]

Reception[edit]

Sound and Motion Magazine gave the song a positive review. They state "From the tones, the rhythms, the vocal delivery, it’s all there, if it’s been in a Chevelle song, any Chevelle song, it somehow got crammed into here, with a few minor, minor twists. Yet still sounds fresh and invigorating." They conclude that the track leaves you wanting more.[1]
