“It’s hard to believe we made this record 20 years ago,” said Art Alexakis in a statement. “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 play the whole record for the first time with the guys in Everclear. It’s going to be awesome!”

Art went onto say “I Love New Zealand, the people there are so genuine, they know how to rock and have a good time, I cant wait to be there again”.

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, the Pixies, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and Elvis Costello. The band 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 DO IT Records.

So Much for the Afterglow remains Everclear's best selling album ever. There are several songs on the album that showcase the group at their best.
