We are excited for the upcoming Everclear show in San Francisco. They will make a stop from their headlining fall tour at the August Hall on October 10th with special guests The Ataris and The Pink Spiders. They are currently out on tour in support of their new live album, Live at The Whisky a Go Go, just released on September 8th. Live at The Whisky a Go Go was recorded and filmed in late 2022 during last year’s celebratory tour back in Alexakis’ hometown of Los Angeles and marked the first time Everclear performed at the famed venue. The 17-track collectionfeatures all the hits and hidden treasures from throughout Everclear’s extraordinary catalog as well as two bonus studio tracks
Everclear recently released their video for their bonus track, Sing Away. This powerful song addressing teen suicide and bullying written from the perspective of a grieving parent. They released the video as September is Suicide Prevention Month.
The video first premiered with PEOPLE, who called the visual “heartbreaking and raw” and noted the song “speaks of the
importance of allowing music to put a salve on the pain.”
“I had heard about this little boy who had a colostomy bag because of issues that he had been born with, and he had gotten bullied so bad that he went home and killed himself. I mean, he was 10 years old,” Alexakis shared with PEOPLE about one of the many stories that inspired him to write the song. “As a parent, I don’t see how you go on living. I really don’t know how you go on.” He added, “When it came time to put out this live record, I wanted to record ‘Sing Away’ with Everclear because it has always felt like an Everclear song. I wanted to do it really heavy. And so, we did, and I just love the way it came out.”
To ensure safe messaging around the complex topic of suicide, Everclear worked with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), which provided creative guidance on the video for “Sing Away,” which concludes with a listing of crisis resources and information on how everyone can play a role in preventing suicide.
We hope you come on out and catch Everclear on October 10th. You can purchase tickets for the show HERE.
