DEADWOOD, S.D. (02/2217) – As familiar as the sound of a jet engine and as visceral as a ride on a speeding motorcycle, Everclear has been providing fans with bombastic, hard-driving, generation-spanning rock and roll with amazing hooks for over 20 years. They intend on bringing their classic hits to Deadwood Mountain Grand on Friday, May 19th with special guests Vertical Horizon and Fastball.
Though Everclear’s Northwestern grunge-punk style was hardly revolutionary when the band rose to popularity in 1995, the trio’s hook-ridden songs and Art Alexakis’ “us against them” lyrics were taken to heart by bored Gen-X teens. Everclear’s sound reflected the rock, post-punk, and singer/songwriter influences of front-man Alexakis, including acts like X, the Replacements, the Pixies, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and Elvis Costello.
1997’s album, So Much for the Afterglow cemented Everclear as true rock superstars. The album eventually went double platinum, particularly due to the success of three Top Five modern rock hits, “Everything to Everyone,” “I Will Buy You a New Life,” and “Father of Mine.” Alexakis had become a father himself around this time, and the birth of his daughter prompted the singer to become even more politically active. He testified in front of Congress regarding child support laws and campaigned with several presidential tickets, among other efforts. Everclear was also hailed as Modern Rock Artist of the Year by Billboard magazine in 1998.
Vertical Horizon was founded in the early 1990s, but it was seven years before lead singer Matt Scannell’s songs became the radio hits that brought the popular grass roots band to national attention. Vertical Horizon released three albums independently (There and Back Again, Running on Ice, and Live Stages) and toured extensively before signing with RCA Records in 1998. In 1999, they released their breakout album, Everything You Want, which went on to sell more than two million copies. The second single off the CD, the title track “Everything You Want,” captured the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 and Adult Top 40 charts, and became Billboard’s Most Played Single of 2000. Having carved out a page in the annals of music history the band garnered further radio attention with “You’re a God” (#4 on Billboard’s Adult Chart) and “Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning).” In 2005, “Best I Ever Had” became a top 20 country hit for country star Gary Allan.
Fastball’s widely-loved body of work, which encompasses such acclaimed albums as the band’s 1996 debut Make Your Mama Proud, their 1998 platinum breakthrough All the Pain Money Can Buy (which spawned the Grammy-nominated Top Five hit “The Way”), 2000’s The Harsh Light of Day, 2004’s Keep Your Wig On and 2009’s Little White Lies.
