World-renowned, multi-platinum alternative rockers Everclear have premiered “American Monster,” the second release from their upcoming ninth studio album, Black Is The New Black, out April 28 (The End Records/ADA), as a follow-up to “The Man Who Broke His Own Heart.”

“This is a very honest recording…. No gimmicks. Not many bells and whistles. All the riffs on this record are things that really just resonated with me and the band, musically and lyrically – from the get-go.” said Everclear’s frontman Art Alexakis.

Following the album release, Everclear will embark on their fourth annual Summerland Tour, founded by Alexakis and heralded by Rolling Stone as one of the “10 Hottest Summer Package Tours.” This year’s Summerland features Everclear alongside Toadies, Fuel, and American Hi-Fi.
