Everclear Announces 30th Anniversary Tour With Special Guests Fastball and The Nixons

Everclear, one of the leading alternative rock bands to emerge from the ‘90s, is celebrating 30 years as a band in 2022 and to mark this major milestone, the quartet — led by vocalist, guitarist and founder Art Alexakis — has announced a 25+ date North American 30th Anniversary Tour featuring special guests Fastball and The Nixons. The setlist for this year’s tour dates will run the gamut of Everclear’s career including songs from their currently out-of-print full-length debut, 1993’s World of Noise, which the band has announced will be remastered and made available for the first time on all digital music streaming platforms on Friday, June 10th.

Officially kicking off Thursday, June 9th in Idaho, Everclear’s celebratory outing will make stops throughout the summer in Denver, Waco, Memphis, Virginia Beach, Greenville, Baltimore, Nashville, Lexington, and Schenectady, among many other markets. See below for full list of upcoming tour dates. Bandsintown and artist pre-sales for the newly announced 30th Anniversary Tour dates will begin Wednesday, April 6th with local presales available Thursday, April 7th and the public on sale commencing Friday, April 8th, all starting at 10am local time.

“Three decades as a band is quite the reason for celebration,” exclaims Alexakis. “I’m almost 60 years old. I’ve got MS. I’ve been through the ringer, but I’m still here. The music’s still here. Everclear is still here. Everclear is my band; it always has been. Its faces have changed, but the music stays the same. We’ve got a great band now, we’re tight as hell, we all love and respect each other, and we just go out and put on the best show we can every night. I’m blessed that I get to do this for a living and am truly grateful for my life.”

Of the 30th Anniversary Tour, he adds, “We’re gonna do a couple of songs off World of Noise for sure, and maybe even some hidden gems from back in the day that were B-sides. And, of course, we’ll still play all the hits and fan favorites. It’s going to be a really fun summer!”

Since forming in 1992, Everclear has enjoyed a lengthy career by any measure, spanning 11 studio releases, including four that have been certified Gold or Platinum, selling over 6 million records, and achieving 12 Top 40 Hit Singles on Mainstream Rock, Alternative, and Adult Top 40 radio, including “Santa Monica,” “Father of Mine,” “I Will Buy You A New Life,” “Wonderful” and “Everything To Everyone,” as well as numerous videos, thousands of shows, and various other accolades, including a 1998 Grammy nomination. In recent years, Alexakis created and runs the annual Summerland Tour, which features a package of popular ‘90s alt rock bands, and also released his first solo album, Sun Songs, in 2019.

“Alexakis and company showed they can be grown-up and youthfully-grungy all at the same time.”

“The energy Everclear brings is still stratospheric…Everclear is fun, high energy, great music, any night of the week!”

After the demise of his band Colorfinger in 1992, Alexakis was struggling to make it in Portland, where he’d moved from San Francisco. That extremely difficult personal and creative period was the crucible that forged Alexakis into the fiery songwriter heard on the early Everclear demos, the Nervous & Weird EP (1993), and ultimately the World of Noise LP, both released on the Portland independent label Tim/Kerr Records. The original 1993 release of World of Noise, paired with the band’s significant efforts to break into college radio and the buzz they’d created within the Portland music scene, attracted the attention of major labels, including Capitol Records, which signed the group soon after. Beginning with their major-label debut, 1995’s platinum-selling album Sparkle and Fade, and its massive chart-topping hit “Santa Monica,” Everclear was soon a household name and catapulted into the masses, thus allowing their impressive three-decade career to prosper and endure.

Everclear is: Art Alexakis (vocals, guitar), Davey French (guitar), Freddy Herrera (bass), Brian Nolan (drums).
