Everclear Announce 2012 Australian Tour Dates

Nineties band Everclear have announced their first Australian tour in 14 years. The band’s 1995 album Sparkle and Fade received airplay across the world, leaving Santa Monica and Heroin Girl embedded in every 90’s kids’ memory. All this continued with 1997’s So Much for the Afterglow, which produced singles Everything to Everyone, I Will Buy You A New Life, and Father of Mine.

The band’s current lineup features frontman Art Alexakis, along with David French on guitar, Freddy Herrera on bass, Josh Crawley on keys and Sean Winchester on drums. A brand new Everclear album titled Invisible Stars is planned for release later in 2012. Speaking about the new album, Alexakis said: “In some ways, this album’s a lot more aggressive than anything we’ve done in a long time, but in other ways, it’s a lot more melodic. I like having both of those sides covered…I see a lot of things that have changed and a lot of things that have stayed consistent. But at the end of the day, I’m still doing the same thing I’ve always done.”

Joining Everclear as special guests on all East Coast shows will be Sydney Southern beach rockers Strangers, who have recently signed to Shock Records new local imprint Permanent Records. The Perth support will be announced shortly.
