It’s been a long road for Art Alexakis and Everclear, and this summer the alt/rock band will embark on a special tour to commemorate its 30th anniversary, a tour that will bring along special guests Fastball and The Nixons.

Announced on Monday, the tour will bring songs from throughout the band’s career, which hit some major highs amid the ’90s alt/rock explosion and has remained of the scene’s most versatile and resilient in the years since.

“Three decades as a band is quite the reason for celebration,” Alexakis, who went public in 2019 with a multiple sclerosis diagnosis and has remained active on the road ever since, said in a statement. “I’m almost 60 years old. I’ve got MS. I’ve been through the ringer, but I’m still here. The music’s still here. Everclear is still here. Everclear is my band; it always has been. Its faces have changed, but the music stays the same. We’ve got a great band now, we’re tight as hell, we all love and respect each other, and we just go out and put on the best show we can every night. I’m blessed that I get to do this for a living and am truly grateful for my life.”

Backing Alexakis on this tour are longtime band mates Davey French (guitar), Freddy Herrera (bass), Brian Nolan (drums). The string of ’90s albums that landed Everclear significant success (1995’s Sparkle & Fade and 1997’s So Much for the Afterglow) featured Craig Montoya on bass and Greg Eklund on drums, though both left the band in 2003 following the album Slow Motion Daydream.

In connection to the 30th anniversary tour, Everclear will also reissue its 1993 debut album, World of Noise, with a remastered edition that will mark the record’s first time being available on digital streaming platforms when it is re-released on June 10.

“We’re gonna do a couple of songs off World of Noise for sure, and maybe even some hidden gems from back in the day that were B-sides,” added Alexakis of the tour plan. “And, of course, we’ll still play all the hits and fan favorites. It’s going to be a really fun summer!”
