This October, Everclear’s alt-rock staple So Much For The Afterglow is turning 20 years old, and to celebrate, the Portland band is taking the record out on the road — and bringing along Vertical Horizon and Fastball.
Because why the fuck not.
Everclear’s 34-date North American tour kicks off May 11 in their hometown and wraps June 29 in Anaheim. Along the way, Art Alexakis and his merry band of alt-rockers play the House of Blues in Boston on June 7. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 24.
So Much For The Afterglow birthed FM rock radio favorites like “Everything to Everyone,” “I Will Buy You a New Life,” “Father of Mine,” and the title track. Everclear will play the album in its entirety, as well as other songs from their catalog (fear not, “Santa Monica” fans). One dollar from each ticket sold will go to the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund.
“It’s hard to believe we made this record 20 years ago,” says 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 now. It’s going to be awesome!”
