En Route to Summerland!

We are hopeful and excited as we approach the final preparations for our Summerland tour with Everclear, Soul Asylum and Eve 6. The package gives us a chance to blast into markets we otherwise wouldn’t be able to get to and share the stage with friends playing some great music. In doing so, we had to part ways with our touring guitarist of two or more years, Mr Timo Ellis: Timo has decided to commit the rest of the year to his band the Netherlands. We wish him all the very best and invite you to check him out and show some love.

As for his replacement, well, they were some big boots to fill, but I think Derrek Hawkins might just have filled ‘em. An awesome New York guitarist and top pal, formerly of Stabbing Westward and the Ace Frehley Band. We are really looking forward to showing him off.

Let us know which shows you’re attending by hashtagging #Spacehog + the #City you’re seeing us in.

Look forward to seeing you out there!

Summerland Tour 2014

“Summerland Tour” Set To Feature Everclear, Soul Asylum, Eve 6 & Spacehog during 3rd Annual Outing

Rock Tour Lineup and Tour Dates Announced

LOS ANGELES, CA (March 3, 2014) — One of Rolling Stone’s “10 Hottest Summer Package Tours of 2012,” the 3rd annual 90’s alternative music tour is proud to announce Everclear, Soul Asylum, Eve 6, and Spacehog to perform at each of 2014’s “Summerland Tour” dates.

With many smash hit singles and millions of albums sold between them, the four bands comprising this year’s Summerland Tour still have a constant presence on the airwaves across the country and represent a true value for concert fans. With songs like “Father of Mine,” “Santa Monica,” “I Will Buy You A New Life,” “Somebody To Shove,” “Runaway Train,” “Think Twice,” and “In the Meantime” being performed nightly, Summerland 2014 is set to provide the best soundtrack to a great summer’s evening.

The 90′s nostalgia tour was formed in 2012 by Art Alexakis, lead guitarist and vocalist of Everclear. The tour has featured classic throwback bands such as Gin Blossoms, Lit, Sugar Ray, Marcy Playground, Live, Filter, and Sponge.
“This tour just seems to get better and better every year. Both the bands and the fans are starting to connect with the name Summerland. It seems like it’s becoming synonymous with ’90′s Alternative Rock,” said Alexakis. He started the tour to bring some of the most well-known alternative 90’s bands back to today’s rock music scene.

SUMMERLAND TOUR 2014 will kick off on June 13th in Pompano Beach, FL and will be stopping in over 30 cities across the US. Tickets go on sale starting March 7 at 10am (in select markets). Visit www.summerlandtour.net for further details.

EVERCLEAR
(Art Alexakis, lead vocals/guitar; Dave French, guitar/vocals; Freddy Herrera, bass/vocals; Sean Winchester, drums/vocals; Josh Crawley, keyboards/vocals)
With hits like the modern rock radio staples “Santa Monica,” “Everything to Everyone,” “I Will Buy You a New Life,” “Father of Mine,” and “Wonderful,” Everclear has sold more than 9 Million albums globally. Fronted by Art Alexakis, Everclear remains a potent force on the touring circuit. The band released Invisible Stars in 2012, their first album of new material in six years, as well as cover songs and re-recordings of past hits albums, which they named Return to Santa Monica. Everclear plans to continue touring and recording, and of course, Art Alexakis will continue the Summerland tour in years to come.

SOUL ASYLUM
Born and bred in Minneapolis, MN Soul Asylum formed in 1981 and since their inception the band has delivered heartfelt and passionate rock n’ roll. They started out on independent label Twin/Tone Records, before scoring major hits on Columbia Records with 1992′s Grave Dancers Union that included the Grammy winning single “Runaway Train”, followed up by 1995′s Let Your Dim Light Shine.
Soul Asylum consists of Dave Pirner (guitar/vocals), Michael Bland (drums), Winston Roye (bass) and Justin Sharbono (guitar). Their last full length album Delayed Reaction, produced by the band and John Fields is melodic, anthemic, well-versed in the art of classic song-craft and was well received by both fans and critics. They are currently in the process of recording an album of all new material to be released in 2014.

EVE 6
Southern California’s Pop-punk trio, Eve 6, are most well-known for hit singles “Inside Out” and “Think Twice” from their 1998 debut self-titled album, and their prom-MTV anthem, “Here’s To The Night” off of 2000′s Horoscope. Eve 6 exploded onto the mainstream with RCA records before they were of legal drinking age, but called it quits in 2004 shortly after their success.
Eve 6 reunited in 2012, and released Speak in Code through Fearless Records. The band’s lineup remains the same; Max Collins (vocals & bass), Jon Siebels (Guitar), and Tony Fagenson (drums). After their eight year hiatus, Eve 6 returned to the music scene more energized than ever before. Frontman, Max Collins, states that Speak in Code is the strongest collection of songs they’ve had on one record.

SPACEHOG
Formed in 1994 during the peak of grunge-rock, Spacehog came out with a more unique sound than what was popular in rock music. Their debut album Resident Alien was heavily influenced by artists such as T.Rex, Iggy Pop, Queen, and David Bowie and The Spiders. On top of their “glam-rock” sound, they added some distorted guitars to create their own individual sound. The result: over a million copies sold, the number one single “In the Meantime” and a completely unique identity.
After two more successful albums, and some time apart, Spacehog is together again using their separate musical journeys as inspiration in writing original material. The band once again released an album produced by Bryce Goggin in 2013 entitled As It Is On Earth, which is now available.

Happy New Year 2014

Happy New Year 2014: We just wanted to take a minute and wish everyone a happy 2014 and thank you all for your support on the dates to promote As It Is On Earth in 2013. We have much to be excited about in the coming year, and we’ll keep you posted on all the facts as and when. Keep your ear to the ground here for all the latest.

In the bag, we have “You Can’t Go Home Again”, a duet with Royston and Liv. Follow the developments also here: liveonearth.org. The message is inventing peace. Part of the proceeds will go to thedavidlynchfoundation.org First Responders Initiative. Recorded on the roof of Electric Ladyland NYC and brought about in conjunction with Studio Scricvo productions (www.studioscrivo.com). We were also honored to be joined by our old friend and “Starside” backing vocalist, Sean Lennon and his very talented (and foxy) girlfriend Charlotte Kemp Muhl. Speaking of friends in high places, we were really flattered to read Boy George’s article in the Guardian citing Resident Alien as a record that ‘changed his life’. Read it here.

Stay tuned…
