Eve 6 werent even legal drinking age when they were presented with their first platinum record. Thus, life came hard and fast at the members of SoCal pop-punk trio, whose meteoric success in the late 90s and early millennium ingrained their anthemic radio hits into the fabric of the lives of a whole generation. Then, it all sort of endeduntil now.
Reunited and re-energized, the band has returned with album Speak In Code eight years after parting ways in 2004. As the fourth full-length release for Eve 6 and their debut on new label Fearless Records, the album heralds not just a return to form for the threesome, but a new chapter in a book that had ended all too abruptly.
Overall I'm really proud of it, and I think we're doing right by our fans, whove waited a long time for us to make another record. I think we're giving them something they'll enjoy, says singer/bassist Max Collins.
Once we got in the studio there was a lot of energy. There aren't any filler moments; each song has its purpose. This is the strongest collection of songs we've ever had on one record.
Eve 6which also includes drummer Tony Fagenson and guitarist Jon Siebelsformed in Southern California in 1995 while the trio were just teenagers, then inked a deal with RCA Records before theyd finished high school. The band issued the self-titled Eve 6 in 1998, attaining platinum success with hit singles Inside Out and Leech, the former capturing the #1 spot on the Modern Rock charts and crossing over successfully to Top 40 radio. More widespread recognition came with gold-selling sophomore effort
Horrorscope (2000), which spawned radio gems Promise, On The Roof Again and the ubiquitous prom and MTV anthem Heres To The Night.
It seemed like Eve 6 were everywherethe band made appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Late Night With Conan OBrien, and TRL with Carson Daly, with their videos in constant rotation on MTV. The band then released the more experimental Its All In Your Head in 2003, featuring singles Think Twice and At Least Were Dreaming, but parted ways with RCA thereafter. Their rapid rise to prominence at an early age had led to an inevitable mental and physical exhaustion, and in 2004 Eve 6 announced an indefinite hiatus. It was time to turn a new page.
There were parts which were fucking incredible, and amazing and awesome, and there were aspects that were terrifying and freaky that you don't know how to handle. I feel like we did some growing up in public, says Collins. I needed to stop drinking. In order to do that, the wheels had to come off. I don't think I could have done it if the band was still going.
After a year apart, Collins and Fagenson began writing and producing for other artists, including 2007s hit ballad We Dont Have To Look Back Now for rock band Puddle of Mudd, and collaborating on a new experimental side project, the Sugi Tap. "It was an inspiring time, going down different musical avenues together and trying things we wouldn't have in Eve 6, reflects Fagenson. Ironically, when we did reform Eve 6 a couple years later, those experiments allowed us to progress the sound of the band more freely than if we had been in the band the whole time."
Collins and Fagenson eventually reignited Eve 6 in 2008, with guitarist Matt Bair temporarily replacing Siebels who was occupied with his project Monsters Are Waiting. The band spent the next two-plus years touring, writing and reconnecting with fans, then in 2011, armed with new material and management, signed with Fearless Records. A month within inking the deal Collins and Fagenson finally convinced Siebels to return to the fold.
After going down some different paths it hit me that there was this thing out there that people wanted and wanted to hear, explains Siebels. It just clicked and made sense to me. After such a long break I was so happy to be playing with these guys again. Continues Fagenson, "The way [;;Siebels];; hits the strings and puts that muscle into the chords is very distinctive to our band, and that was a welcome piece of the sound that we had missed. Songs that had been kicking around for a couple years got new life with his playing put into them.
