Everclear Taking New Sounds To TV

With a new album hitting stores this week, the alt-rockers of Everclear are diving into the promotional mix with a string of high-profile television appearances.

"Songs From An American Movie, Vol. I: Learning How To Smile" arrives on Tuesday, and Everclear will visit "The Tonight Show" the night before to perform the album's first single, "Wonderful." Later this week, frontman Art Alexakis will then match wits with a celebrity roundtable on Friday's edition of "Politically Incorrect."

Art will then rejoin his bandmates (drummer Greg Eklund and bassist Craig Montoya) for a July 21 appearance on "The Late, Late Show With Craig Kilborn" that will see the band offer an acoustic performance of "Wonderful."

In addition to TV visibility, the band will also build on the heavy radio exposure they've already found for the album with a couple of special appearances. On Tuesday morning, Los Angeles' KROQ radio will broadcast a three-song live performance by the

band from a 7-Eleven in Burbank, California. Everclear will also turn up on the syndicated radio shows "Rockline" on Monday and "Loveline" on Thursday.

The band currently has no tour plans on the horizon, but spokespeople for Everclear say that the group is likely to head out on the road after releasing yet another album, "Songs From An American Movie, Vol. 2: Good Time For A Bad Attitude," this fall.
