Led by vocalist, guitarist and founder Art Alexakis, the acclaimed quartet, who celebrated their 30th anniversary in 2022, has also revealed a live album, “Live at The Whisky a Go Go,” recorded during last year’s celebratory tour, is set to be released Sept. 8.
“We usually hit the road hard in the summers, but this year we’re changing it up and bringing a new kind of energy by touring in the fall and bringing out bands that came out 15 years after we did,” Alexakis shared. “While we love touring with our ’90s brothers, we’re excited to get out there with bands like The Ataris, who I’m a huge fan of, and The Pink Spiders, who are a cool band from Nashville. We're really looking forward to it and can't wait to see all of our amazing fans out on the road.”
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 band’s 1993 debut album, “World Of Noise,” released on the Portland independent label Tim/Kerr Records, paired with their 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 2022, Everclear reissued “World Of Noise” as a special remastered, deluxe edition, making the currently out-of-print album available for the first time on digital streaming platforms with SIX bonus songs in addition to its original 12 tracks. Press here to listen to “World Of Noise – 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition.”
In recent years, Alexakis also created and runs the annual “Summerland Tour,” which features a package of popular ’90s alt-rock bands, and released his first solo album, “Sun Songs,” in 2019.
