Eve 6 makes a comeback



By Trey Harris

Remember Eve 6? “I would swallow my pride, I would choke on the rhines, but the lack thereof would leave me empty inside,” may come to mind. Start singing it and keep singing it because they are back in formation and touring the country.

Max Collins (bass and vocals), Jon Siebels (guitar) and Nick Meyer (drums) began their career under the name Eleventeen  and signed with RCA records while they were still in high school. After graduation they released their 1998 self-titled debut album and replaced Meyer with Tony Fagenson. The debut went platinum with the help of hits such as “Inside Out,” “Leech,” and “Open Road Song.”

Their sophomore effort, “Horrorscope,” was released in 2000. The album spawned hits such as “Promise” and “Here’s To The Night” The album went gold. Their latest album, 2003’s “It’s All In Your Head,” failed to muster enough strength to top their previous two albums and they were eventually dropped by RCA.

Subsequently, Eve 6 broke into two separate groups. Collins and Fagenson formed  The Sugi Tap while Seibels joined Monsters Are Waiting.

In October 2007, Eve 6 reformed without Seibels and are currently touring with a temporary guitarist Matt Blair. The Sugi Trap has consequently taken an indefinite hiatus. According to the Eve 6 MySpace page, the group is currently writing a new album. Its release date is yet to be determined.

There is no official word on when the new album will be released so until then, get comfortable singing, “wanna put my tender heart in a blender, watch it spin round to a beautiful oblivion.”
