EVERCLEAR – ” Year Of The Tiger “

Posted: November 7, 2022 in MUSIC

Everclear have released their first new song in seven years, “Year of the Tiger,” and more so than their last album, this one really seems like it’s channelling the sound of Everclear’s ’90s days. It also makes reference to Nirvana smiley face shirts and MAGA hats. 

Everclear’s politically-charged single ‘Year of the Tiger’ marks the band’s first new song since the release of their 2015 album, “Black Is The New Black”. “After all of the events of the last almost 3 years with Covid, worldwide shutdowns, the political debacle of 2020…emanating from in and outside of MAGA world, I felt I needed to write a song that not just explained my anger and frustration, but a song that served as a mission statement,” shares Alexakis, who was also born in a Year of the Tiger in 1962. “I feel like the tiger should be the new symbol of the new Democratic party. We will not back down, we will not forget, we hit back, we challenge lies, and we refuse to be intimidated by ignorance or loud voices. To quote the song’s lyrics, ‘Here we are in the Year of the Tiger, we are where we are because of all the big lies.’ Tigers are everywhere.”
