Re: Initial Thoughts on Art Alexakis' “Sun Songs”

I will never listen to Orange or White People Scare Me again. I can see how those two songs would turn off a lot of listeners. They are both pretty quirky songs, with odd production choices. "Orange" didn't work for me much, either... but "White People Scary Me," on the other hand... I kind of dig ...

Re: 20th Anniversary Tour announcement

Maybe you can open for the Moopets at the Pechoolo Casino in Reno, NV!
I hear there's a really nice dressing room in the back alleyway you could crash at, as well. Great gig!

Happy 20th Anniversary Tour!

Re: BLACK IS THE NEW BLACK

I don't know, I guess I'm just weird and out of touch, 'cause I think Invisible Stars is easily as strong as So Much For The Afterglow, in my eyes. I mean, Afterglow is great and all, but I think it's the most overrated of Everclear's albums. Woah, woah, woah! Whaaaaat?!!?!? You gotta expand on tha...

Re: BLACK IS THE NEW BLACK

bands like Everclear don't return to the mainstream regardless of how good their new stuff is. It's like once the magical force that controls what's popular decides you're done, you're done. It certainly is a weird mystical power, too. I sure don't get it. It's like the radio still worships and pla...

Re: BLACK IS THE NEW BLACK

Also in the review the band posted on Facebook earlier this week the review said 'Complacent' would be a smart choice for a single. I kind of agree with that, the song is pretty much everything Everclear has always been. Yeah, but we all know Everclear doesn't have the best track record when it com...

Re: BLACK IS THE NEW BLACK

'Complacent', 'Simple and Plain', and the remake of 'Death Song' are my favorites so far. Really impressed with how Art redid 'Death Song', somehow he made it better! Thought I'd pop in to see who was commenting here for the early streaming. It's cool to see the love for the "Complacent" song, so f...

Re: American Monster released!

Yeah this sucks in my opinion. Doesn't sound like Everclear. Sounds like guitars/melody of a different band, almost a little bit industrial rock sorta. I'm all for a big guitars album but I'd prefer it still retain classic EC sound. It's just one song, though. Personally, I enjoyed this track. But,...

Agreed. At least we will all be able to press "play" once this new Everclear album gets released later this month.

*sigh*

I know, it's not quite the same as actual playing, but at least it's something.
Can't wait for it!

Re: BLACK IS THE NEW BLACK

Which means June or July. It always sucks waiting, but this album came about so quickly after Invisible Stars, that I am not really too concerned about it this time around. At least it wasn't the six year gap between albums that followed Drama Club. Now THAT felt like a content drought! (Especially...

We've certainly come a long way from the EverclearOnline days. Pledge music works decent enough for getting the job done.
Been appreciating the consistent updates, as well.

Re: Art holding a Q&A on the band's facebook page today (11/

Browsing that Facebook page for new info... 1. The opening song of the new album is called "Sugar Noise" and is apparently Art's favorite song off the new record. 2. Fan Request : "More hard sound, bass, cool guitar riffs and solids drums, and awesome vocals...so sound like yourselves" Band response...

Re: "Ask the blonde guy" Twitter Q&A

I'm not gonna share the news from twitter on here because I got yelled at for it the last time... Seriously? Who would get upset about stupid little twitter details like this? Anyway, I love the new album title! Pretty humorous for an Everclear title. I am surprised no one made a thread about it. "...
