Chevelle are back with a new disc, 'Hats Off to the Bull,' and we've got an exclusive stream of the entire album leading up to its release on Tuesday, Dec. 6.

The Chicago-based band's sixth album, and first since 2009's 'Sci-fi Crimes,' features the first single 'Face to the Floor,' which has already soared to the No. 1 spot on the active rock airplay chart. The single, which we reviewed here, is a scorching look at the actions of notorious Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff.

"It's an angry song," says frontman Pete Loeffler about the single. "The lyrics are about all the people who have been taken advantage of. I reference Bernie Madoff and his Ponzi scheme. He raked people over the coals, stole and is a terrible person. One day, these people have everything, and the next day it's completely gone."

Chevelle recently completed a tour with Bush and Filter, and now have a number of U.S. dates lined up for December. Check out the band's current itinerary here.

Note: The exclusive 'Hats Off to the Bull' stream has ended. Pick up the album at iTunes or other outlets.
