For Art Alexakis, charismatic frontman and driving force behind the multi-platinum powerhouse Everclear, there’s truly no debate about evolution. If you’re not growing and changing and getting creative with your classic songs over time, he says, “then you’re not a band, you’ve become a jukebox!” And every so often, to remind yourself that making music is still the invigorating joy it’s always been, it’s a great idea to take a look back at your classic songs, as Alexakis does on Everclear’s 429 Records debut, In A Different Light.

Nearly fifteen years since his Portland, Oregon based unit captured the hearts of Gen-Xers and rock fans everywhere—and hit #1 on Billboard’s Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart—with “Santa Monica” and their Top 30 Capitol Records album Sparkle and Fade, the happily restless singer/songwriter gears up for Everclear’s next phase by taking a unique, organic look back at “Santa Monica” and a personal selection of eight more their biggest hits and fan favorites from throughout their career: “Learning How To Smile,” “I Will Buy You A New Life,” “Summerland,” “Everything To Everyone,” “Wonderful,” “Father Of Mine,” “Rock Star” and “The Maple Song.”

The dynamic new set also features two new Alexakis penned tunes, “Here Comes The Darkness” (originally recorded for their 2006 first post-Capitol set Welcome To The Drama Club, but never before released) and the infectious first single “At The End Of The Day,” featuring backing vocals by performers in Portland’s underground funk gospel scene, including soul singer Liv Warfield. While Alexakis is hitting the road in spurts this fall starting October 5 in New York with a new lineup that will debut on Everclear’s highly anticipated next album (bassist Freddy Herrera, drummer Jordan Plosky, keyboardist Sasha Smith and guitarist Johnny Hawthorn), he is joined on In A Different Light by the Everclear ensemble of 2003-2009 (guitarist Davey French, keyboardist Josh Crawley, bassist Sam Hudson) and drummer Tommy Stewart.
