“Three decades into a career littered with enough hits to fill any set, [Everclear] refuses to let time define them…They quickly prove themselves to be masters of their craft.” – Substream Magazine
“[Everclear] were not just entertaining, they for sure had the energy of a rock band that’s much younger, or maybe just one that is still enjoying what they do on a daily basis? They really did come out embodying everything we love about rock & roll…they are just a raw, talented, fun rock band that is definitely worth the time going out to.” – Loud & Heavy
“Alexakis and company showed they can be grown-up and youthfully-grungy all at the same time.”
– The Denver Post
The energy Everclear brings is still stratospheric…Everclear is fun, high energy, great music, any night of the week!” – Rock At Night
Everclear, one of the leading alternative rock bands to emerge from the ‘90s, is celebrating 30 years as a band in 2022 and to mark this major milestone, the quartet — led by vocalist, guitarist and founder Art Alexakis – is on the road this year on their official 30th Anniversary Tour. Following a UK trek with Soul Asylum that kicks off tonight, the band’s celebratory outing will be stopping locally in Pioneertown on Friday, December 2 at Pappy & Harriet’s for 2 shows (8pm and 10:30pm) with support from Sponge. Tickets are on sale now. For their year-end Southern California shows, Everclear has teamed up with Border Kindness, a 501c3 nonprofit humanitarian-aid organization, for a toy drive, encouraging those in attendance to bring a new, unwrapped toy with them.
This past Friday (Nov. 7), Everclear – Alexakis (vocals, guitar), Davey French (guitar), Freddy Herrera (bass), Brian Nolan (drums) – released their new single “Year of the Tiger.” The politically-charged offering marks the first new song from the band since the release of their 2015 album, Black Is The New Black. PRESS HERE to listen to “Year of the Tiger” and PRESS HERE to watch the official lyric video.
The setlist for this year’s tour dates runs the gamut of Everclear’s career including songs from their out-of-print full-length debut, 1993’s World Of Noise, which the band made available this summer for the first time on all digital music streaming platforms. The special fully remastered World Of Noise – 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition features all 12 original tracks plus 6 bonus songs including the previously unreleased “Drunk Again” and “Nervous & Weird 2001 Remix.” PRESS HERE to listen. The anniversary edition will also be available on vinyl soon.
Since forming in 1992, Everclear has enjoyed a lengthy career by any measure, spanning 11 studio releases, including four that have been certified Gold or Platinum, selling over 6 million records, and achieving 12 Top 40 Hit Singles on Mainstream Rock, Alternative, and Adult Top 40 radio, including “Santa Monica,” “Father of Mine,” “I Will Buy You A New Life,” “Wonderful” and “Everything To Everyone,” as well as numerous videos, thousands of shows, and various other accolades, including a 1998 Grammy nomination. The original 1993 release of World Of Noise on the Portland independent label Tim/Kerr Records, paired with the band’s significant efforts to break into college radio and the buzz they’d created within the Portland music scene, attracted the attention of major labels, including Capitol Records, which signed the group soon after. Beginning with their major-label debut, 1995’s platinum-selling album Sparkle and Fade, and its massive chart-topping hit “Santa Monica,” Everclear was soon a household name and catapulted into the masses, thus allowing their impressive three-decade career to prosper and endure. In recent years, Alexakis created and runs the annual Summerland Tour, which features a package of popular ‘90s alt rock bands, and also released his first solo album, Sun Songs, in 2019.
