Art Alexakis and the latest incarnation of Everclear bring their hooky alternarock classics from 1994’s Sparkle & Fade all the way up to their forthcoming eighth album Invisible Stars.

Alexakis says of the new album, “In some ways, this album’s a lot more aggressive than anything we’ve done in a long time. But in other ways, it’s a lot more melodic.  I like having both of those sides covered.”

The band currently consists of figurehead Alexakis, with David French on guitar, Freddy Herrera on bass, Josh Crawley on keys and Sean Winchester on drums.

“When I look back at what Everclear has done,” Alexakis concludes, “I see a lot of things that have changed and a lot of things that have stayed consistent. But at the end of the day, I’m still doing the same thing I’ve always done. It’s still guitar-based rock ‘n’ roll, and I’m still just telling stories, which is all I’ve ever wanted to do. I’m proud of what we’ve done, and I still enjoy it. And I feel blessed that other people like it too.”

Everclear will be joined by Sydney rockers and recent Shock Records-signees Strangers up the East Coast. Tickets go on sale on Friday June 1 from the venues, Moshtix and Oztix.
