Summerland Tour with Everclear starts next month

Nineties alt-rock hitmakers Everclear, Toadies, Fuel & American Hi-Fi are scheduled to perform at each date of this year's Summerland Tour.

The fourth annual trek starts in June. For more information, visit:

Formed in 2012 by Art Alexakis, lead guitarist and vocalist of Everclear, past Summerland tours have featured Soul Asylum, Eve 6, Space Hog, Gin Blossoms, Lit, Sugar Ray, Marcy Playground, Live, Filter, and Sponge.

Tickets for Summerland Tour are on sale now with Everclear VIP packages available for purchase.

Alexakis says, "This is the kind of line up I've dreamed of when I started the Summerland Tour. With Toadies, Fuel, American Hi-Fi, and of course Everclear, this is guitar rock at its finest. I can't wait to see how people react each night. Game on!"

More than two decades ago, Everclear found success with their first three albums on Capitol Records - Sparkle and Fade, So Much for the Afterglow, and Songs from an American Movie Vol. One: Learning How to Smile - which were all certified platinum.

Everclear just released ninth studio album Black Is The New Black via The End Records/ADA. A vinyl edition comes out June 16. The lineup includes drummer Sean Winchester, bassist Freddy Herrera, guitarist Davey French and keyboardist Josh Crawley.

Here's the track listing:

01. Sugar Noise
02. The Man Who Broke His Own Heart
03. American Monster
04. Complacent
05. You
06. This Is Your Death Song
07. Simple And Plain
08. Anything Is Better Than This
09. Van Gogh Sun
10. Pretty Bomb
11. Safe

After bursting onto the national scene with their breakthrough Rubberneck album and hit single "Possum Kingdom," the successful follow-up single "Away" and fan favorite "Tyler," Toadies have recently revisited their platinum-selling 1994 debut with a 20th anniversary reissue of the album.

Fuel formed in 1993 while playing the club circuit in and around Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. The band signed to Sony Records and in 1998 released their critically lauded, debut album Sunburn with hit single "Shimmer."

Second album Something Like Human took the band to a new level of stardom, hitting multi-platinum status driven by the singles "Innocent" and "Hemorrhage", which remained at #1 for ten weeks. In 2003 Fuel released their third record Natural Selection, and found success at radio again with the hit song "Falls On Me".

Made up of Brett Scallions (vocals), Andy Andersson (guitar), Brad Stewart (bass) and Shannon Boone (drums), Fuel released their most recent album Puppet Strings on MRI/Red. Catapulted by the first single, "Soul To Preach To", the album entered the Billboard rock charts at #1. 

Last year's Blood & Lemonade is American Hi-Fi's fourth full length and their first since 2010's Fight the Frequency. Featuring the "Golden State" and other notables "Allison" and "Armageddon Days," the album fits well with their hit "Flavor of The Weak." 

In support of the record, American Hi-Fi's Stacy Jones (vocals, guitar), Jamie Arentzen (guitar), Drew Parsons (bass)and Brian Nolan (drums) performed a special one-off at London's famed 100 Club, which sold out quickly after being announced. The band also performed select shows in Los Angeles, New York City, and Boston in support of the album's release.
