Among the many alt/rock band to hit it big in the mid to late 1990s with radio hits, Eve 6 was undeniable.
The Los Angeles band’s breakout single, “Inside Out,” was a really big deal, hitting No. 21 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay list and the top spot on the Modern Rock Chart, its music video airing on MTV seemingly every 10 minutes.
To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the band’s self-titled debut album, released in 1998 and also featuring another hit, “Leech,” Eve 6 will head out on the road this fall for a special tour. Each night, the band — vocalist/bassist Max Collins, guitarist Jon Siebels and new drummer Ben Hilzinger (who took over for Tony Fagenson earlier this year) will perform the self-titled album in its entirety, plus more.
Said Collins to Billboard.com about the big tour:
“It’s surreal that a record we made when we were teenagers is worthy of an anniversary tour two decades later. When I hear those songs in certain ways I hear kids singing about kid stuff but there’s also a universality to the feelings and experiences. I mean you don’t stop getting your heart broken when you reach your twenties. And the feelings of adolescent disillusionment and angst differ from those of an adult in pretty subtle ways. This is the record that gave us everything. Shot us into that infinitesimal percentage of bands that get to have a couple songs in the public consciousness. We are grateful to be here and very excited to be playing album 1 front to back for the first time ever.” – Max Collins
