Everclear Commemorates 30 Years with Digital Reissue of 1993 Debut ‘World of Noise’; On Tour This Summer

This past Friday, June 10, Art Alexakis and his long-running alt/rock band Everclear revisited World of Noise, the group’s full-length debut album from 1993.

The record was given its first-ever release on digital streaming platforms as part of the reissue, which also featured some bonus tracks from the recording sessions that had yet to be made available publicly.

Originally recorded in a friend’s basement for $400, World of Noise was the first release from Everclear, prior to its emergence in the mid-1990s as an alt/rock staple with era-defining radio hits like “Father of Mine” and “Santa Monica.” While the feel of the record is quite different from what would come a few years later, there are hints at the more accessible — but still edgy — material that was in the works.

In our new interview, Alexakis said of the World of Noise reissue:

“It’s almost like a document more than a record. It’s a document of where I was at the time. It was honest, it was really genuine, you know? I grew up with bands in the 60s and 70s, and 80s. And I always felt like, what you put out on record is not necessarily what you put out live. Live should be louder, more intense, more immediate, because you don’t have the dimensions that you can do on a record. So it’s two different things. I’ve always felt that. That being said, as Everclear evolved and I evolved as a writer, and a producer, and a player, the music changed, but honestly, our live show has always been pretty balls to the wall rock and roll.”
