Sci-Fi Crimes is the fifth studio album from Grayslakemarker-based rock band Chevelle. The album is a follow-up to 2007's Vena Sera. It was released on August 31, 2009 through Epic Records.


The album was recorded in Nashvillemarker, Tennesseemarker in 2009 with producer Brian Virtue.. On April 9, 2009, Chevelle debuted two new songs, "Letter from a Thief" and "Sleep Apnea" at a concert in Atlanta, Georgia. Vocalist Pete Loeffler stated that the tracks were "possible singles" off of the album. Jars is the first single from the album and began radio airplay on June 23. The tracklist and artwork were revealed July 21, 2009, in addition to a pre-order being made available which includes the ability to download three tracks "Jars", "This Circus", and "The Clincher (Version 103)" (an alternate version of the track from This Type of Thinking ).. The album cover is an oil painting made by the bassist Dean Bernardini on a 24x48 canvas. The album title was inspired by some off-road adventures with a friend of the band, whom Pete Loeffler described as "this really off-the-wall character, who was driving us around, who believes so whole-heartedly in aliens and UFOs that the subject just really piqued my interest."
