World-renowned, multi-platinum rockers Everclear are thrilled to announce they will be touring Australia in September, to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of their best-selling album So Much For The Afterglow. Everclear will perform the entire So Much For The Afterglow album, including hit songs “Everything to Everyone,” “I Will Buy You a New Life,” “Father of Mine,” “So Much For the Afterglow,” and “One Hit Wonder,” along with tracks from the rest of the band’s extensive discography.
On the upcoming tour, lead singer Art Alexakis shares: “It’s hard to believe we made this record 20 years ago. Even though I’m in a different place now than the guy who first wrote and sang these songs, and even though faces, voices, and relationships change, the songs still feel relevant and vital every time we play them live. I can’t wait to get back to Australia and play this whole record for the first time with the guys in Everclear. It’s going to be awesome!”
For over two decades, Everclear‘s sound has reflected the rock, post-punk and singer/songwriter influences of Art Alexakis, including acts like X, The Replacements, Pixies, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and Elvis Costello. Everclear found success with their first three albums on Capitol Records, Sparkle and Fade, So Much for The Afterglow and Songs from an American Movie Vol. One: Learning How to Smile, which were all certified platinum. In 2015 the band released their ninth studio album titled Black Is The New Black via The End Records/ADA.
So Much For The Afterglow is the album that quickly won over listeners with its trademark combination of melody, rhythmic energy, evocative lyrics and thundering guitar crunch. It remains a beloved fan favorite and continues to inspire new generations of musicians & music lovers today.
Everclear is comprised of Art Alexakis (Vocals/Guitar), Freddy Herrera (Bass/Background Vocals), Davey French (Guitar/Background Vocals), and Jake Margolis (Drums).
