Eve 6 to Embark on 20th Anniversary Tour in November


Story by Cat Badra

Eve 6 will hit the road in late November to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their 1998 self-titled debut album

Eve 6, the guys behind perennial alternative rock hits “Inside Out” and “Think Twice,” are celebrating an important milestone. The band’s 1998 self-titled debut album turned 20 years old earlier this year, and in honor, the guys are going on a North American tour.

The tour will kick off on Nov. 28 in Salt Lake City and run through a Dec. 16 date in New York City. On the run, the guys will perform that debut album from front to back. The band’s current lineup features founding members Max Collins and Jon Siebels and new drummer Ben Hilzinger. For more information, head to Eve6.com.

Collins says that hitting the big 20 is “definitely surreal,” speaking with Billboard. “When you think about actual moments along the timeline, it feels like an eternity, but that fact that we’re still able to go out and play and people show up and want to hear these songs 20 years later is pretty cool.”

“Eve 6” is the album that pushed Eve 6 into alternative rock royalty status. The album scored the guys radio hits in “Inside Out,” “Leech” and “Open Road Song.” They went on to release three more albums, the latest being 2012’s “Speak in Code.”

So, would Eve 6 consider releasing another new album, or at least a new song?

“I do think it would be cool to do a single (with Eve 6) at some point, maybe next year,” Collins told Billboard. “We’ve talked about doing a deep cuts, punk covers EP or something that’s just kind of indulgent and fun for us, but maybe a few other people might find entertaining. I’m sure we’ll do something at some point.”
