Press Release: (from FB via The Corner)

After a 14 year absence DO IT Management Ltd are proud to present American power pop sensation Everclear live in NZ.

Starting out in Portland, Oregon in 1992 Everclear choosing a name ode to a notoriously vicious brand of pure grain alcohol, began writing and recording what would be the debut Nervous and Weird EP and their first long player World Of Noise. From here major label interest stirred and Everclear signed to Capitol Records to record their second album Sparkle and Fade. The album spawned the singles Heroin Girl and Santa Monica and heralded the arrival of a new musical force with the album achieving platinum sales status.

Everclear's third album So Much For The Afterglow was released to much acclaim in 1996 with it's catchy as hell title track and the poignant hit single Father of Mine the band were propelled into the mainstream consciousness, with the album going on to achieve a Grammy nomination for the track El Distorto de Melodica and double platinum sales status.

The band's current line-up features the ever present 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 in August 2012. "In some ways, this album's a lot more aggressive than anything we've done in a long time," Art Alexakis says of Invisible Stars, Everclears first collection of new songs in six years. "But in other ways, it's a lot more melodic. I like having both of those sides covered."

Hot off the back of a tour of the United States with Sugar Ray, Lit, Marcy Playground, and Gin Blossoms, Everclear will bring their rocking anthems to New Zealand.

The start of the NZ tour will see Everclear perform an intimate live concert with very limited tickets available. This is an opportunity for fans to celebrate up close with the band their return to performing in NZ.
