Eve 6 – “black nova”
Just as the Reddit-inflated GameStop stock price was eventually going to fall, there was always going to come a time when Eve 6’s suddenly vigorous social media presence would result in us actually listening to new Eve 6 music. That time has come. After weeks of juicy anecdotes, pithy quips, and sick burns that have turned @Eve6 into one of the most entertaining accounts on Twitter, the self-described “very relevant band” has announced its new EP.
Titled grim value, the five-track project is out in June, preceded today by a video for opening track “black nova.” It’s more of a straight-ahead rock ‘n’ roll track than the pop-minded post-grunge the band made its name on in the late ’90s and early ’00s. “When you take flight it gets turbulent,” Max Collins sings. “A flight like this is permanent.” The song is paired with a video by Collins and Hether Fortune, formerly of Oakland post-punk band Wax Idols, who is apparently not on Twitter anymore (unlike Collins, who is very much on Twitter, tweeting about Sugar Ray and God and progressive politics and what have you).
In a press release, Eve 6 submits, “Hi, our band’s called Eve 6. We’re back which is confirmation we’re living in the end times.” Watch the “black nova” video below.
