Eve 6 is an American rock band from Southern California, originally consisting of Max Collins (bass, lead vocals), Jon Siebels (guitar, backing vocals), and Nick Meyers (drums). The band formed in 1995 in La Crescenta, California first as Yakoo, then Eleventeen. The name Eve 6 was adopted later.
Eleventeen had secured a recording contract with RCA while the band were still in high school. After the recording of the 1996 EP, “Eleventeen,” Meyers left the band, and was replaced by Tony Fagenson.
As Eve 6 they issued their self-titled debut full-length album “Eve 6,” in 1998. The album was a platinum success with hit singles “Inside Out” and “Leech,” the former capturing the #1 spot on the Modern Rock charts and crossing over successfully to Top 40 radio.
More widespread recognition came with their 2000 gold-selling sophomore effort “Horrorscope,” which spawned radio gems “Promise,” “On The Roof Again” and “Here’s To The Night.”
In 2003 they released their third album, “It’s All in Your Head.” The album sold poorly compared to their previous LPs and the band was released from the contract with RCA. The band broke up shortly after, playing their final show in July 2004.
Collins and Fagenson eventually reignited Eve 6 in 2008, with guitarist Matt Bair temporarily replacing Siebels who was occupied with his project Monsters Are Waiting. The band spent the next two-plus years touring, writing and reconnecting with fans, then in 2011, armed with new material and management, signed with Fearless Records. A month within inking the deal Collins and Fagenson finally convinced Siebels to return to the fold.
They have recorded an album, “Speak In Code,” which is slated for an April 2012 release through Fearless Records. It will be the band’s first album in nine years.
