After a 14 year absence, Juice TV & Radio Hauraki are proud to present American power pop sensation Everclear live in NZ.
The band’s 1995 album Sparkle and Fade received airplay across the world, leaving Santa Monica and Heroin Girl embedded in every 90’s kids’ memory. All this continued with 1997’s So Much for the Afterglow, which produced singles Everything to Everyone, I Will Buy You A New Life, and Father of Mine.
Everclear's first NZ show has sold out!
Everclear are proud to announce another new show;
This exclusive and intimate TV filmed show on October 17th is presented by Juice TV and will be broadcast live on television. It will include an intimate insight into how Art and Everclear made it to become one of the biggest bands in the world in the 90s as well as finding out the latest gossip and plans for the band.

Limited to 200 Tickets only.
Lead by founder and mastermind Art Alexakis and armed with his swag of catchy, guitar driven pop gems, Everclear were an ubiquitous presence on the world's airwaves and TV feeds from the early part of the '90s onwards. Songs like Heroin Girl, Santa Monica, I Will Buy You A New Life, So Much For the Afterglow and Father Of Mine amongst many others showcased a band that could not only deliver one infectious anthem after another, but one that could also deliver enough lyrical substance and soul as to strike a resonant chord in the hearts and minds of the slacker generation, elevating Everclear above being just another throwaway pop band with loud distorted guitars and clever hooks.
Starting out in Portland, Oregon in 1992 Everclear choosing a name ode to a notoriously vicious brand of pure grain alcohol, began writing and recording what would be the debut Nervous and Weird EP and their first long player World Of Noise.
From here major label interest stirred and Everclear signed to Capitol Records to record their second album Sparkle and Fade. The album spawned the singles Heroin Girl and Santa Monica and heralded the arrival of a new musical force with the album achieving platinum sales status.
Everclear's third album So Much For The Afterglow was released to much acclaim in 1996 with its catchy as hell title track and the poignant hit single Father of Mine. The band were propelled into the mainstream consciousness, with the album going on to achieve a Grammy nomination for the track El Distorto de Melodica and double platinum sales status.
The band's current line-up features the ever present Alexakis, along with David French on guitar, Freddy Herrera on bass, Josh Crawley on keys and Sean Winchester on drums. A brand new Everclear album titled “Invisible Stars” is planned for release in New Zealand on 8 October 2012. "In some ways, this album's a lot more aggressive than anything we've done in a long time," Art Alexakis says of Invisible Stars, Everclears first collection of new songs in six years. "But in other ways, it's a lot more melodic. I like having both of those sides covered."
The start of the NZ tour will see Everclear perform an intimate live TV filmed concert with very limited tickets available. This is an opportunity for fans to celebrate up close with the band their return to performing in NZ.
