The North Corridor is the eighth studio album from the American rock band Chevelle. The album was released on July 8, 2016.

Summary[edit]

On May 10, 2016, the band announced the new album.[5] The first single from the album, "Joyride (Omen)", was released to radio in May 2016.[6] The group also added that the first 2016 pre-orders would be signed by the band; but later decided that all pre-orders would be signed due to the servers crashing when the preorders went live.[5][7] The band announced on June 20 that the song "Young Wicked" would be available to everyone who pre-ordered the album on June 23, 2016.[8]

Critical reception[edit]

Critical reception to the album has been generally positive. Allmusic's Neil Yeung has described the album as Chevelle's "heaviest, darkest, and most aggressive effort in over a decade." [9]
