Everclear Premieres New Album ‘Black Is The New Black’ On Pandora


World-renowned, multi-platinum rockers Everclear have premiered the Black Is The New Black full album stream with Pandora. The full album stream is available through April 27, prior to the April 28 street release via The End Records/ADA. The album will be available June 16 on vinyl and cassette.

“This is a very honest recording….No gimmicks. Not many bells and whistles. All the riffs on this record are things that really just resonated with me and the band, musically and lyrically – from the get-go.” –Everclear frontman Art Alexakis.

Black Is The New Black Full Album Stream

Everclear has sold over 3.6 MILLION ALBUMS worldwide, including the band’s platinum commercial breakthrough, Sparkle And Fade, featuring the hit single ‘Heroin Girl,’ as well as the double platinum So Much For The Afterglow, which produced enduring radio staples like ‘I Will Buy You A New Life’ and ‘Father of Mine,’ as ubiquitous on the radio now as then.

Black Is The New Black is a diverse and timeless-sounding collection, without ballads and without nostalgia. This is a heavy guitar record. It’s a throwback to the potent passion and urgent delivery of Everclear’s heralded indie debut and subsequent major label classics, delivered through a modern lens. Across the album, the insistent kick of drummer Sean Winchester, athletic groove of bassist Freddy Herrera, ridiculously skilled guitar shred of Davey French, and tasteful keyboards from Josh Crawley join forces with the autobiographical exorcism and narrative storytelling from Everclear’s singer, guitarist, cofounder and songwriter, Art Alexakis.

On May 7, Everclear will embark on the 20th Anniversary Tour of their pivotal 1995 album Sparkle And Fade in Australia, where they will be performing the album in full along with select tracks from Black Is The New BlackFollowing Australia, Everclear will tour the US for the fourth annual Summerland Tour, founded by Alexakis and heralded by Rolling Stone as one of the “10 Hottest Summer Package Tours.” This year’s Summerland features Everclear alongside Toadies, Fuel & American Hi-Fi.
