Eve 6 Mixes New LP, Takes On "Mission Impossible 2"

Punk-pop trio Eve 6 is wrapping up production on an as-yet-untitled new album, the follow-up to its platinum self-titled 1998 debut.

The group has been holed up in rehearsal and recording studios since August and will be flying to South Beach, Florida in a week or so to do the final mixes on the LP, according to an e-mailed update from drummer Tony Fagenson. The album is being produced by Don Gilmore and will be mixed by Tom Lord-Alge.

Fagenson writes that fans can expect to hear the first single on the radio in eight to twelve weeks and that the album is targeted for a June release. He adds that the band intends to tour extensively this year covering the States, Canada, Europe, and possibly Asia and Australia.

Also according to Fagenson, the group will have a new song available exclusively on the pending "Mission Impossible 2" soundtrack alongside Metallica, Limp Bizkit, Tori Amos, PJ Harvey, and others. That CD is expected out this spring.
