They have one of the most enduring graduation themes in the last generation (“Here’s To The Night”) and after a breakup, an attempt to reinvent with a new lineup and finally the long-awaited reunification, Eve 6 is back and ready to bring new music. Their fourth album and first with indie power players Fearless Records, titled “Speak In Code” will also be their first album with the original lineup since the initial breakup in 2004.
“Overall I’m really proud of it, and I think we’re doing right by our fans, who’ve waited a long time for us to make another record. I think we’re giving them something they’ll enjoy,” says singer/bassist Max Collins in their official band bio. “Once we got in the studio there was a lot of energy. There aren’t any filler moments; each song has its purpose. This is the strongest collection of songs we’ve ever had on one record.”
“In some of the songs frustration is a theme. I was sort of looking at difficult personal relationships with a humorous spin in some places, and with more earnestness in others,” explains Collins on their official website. “The title [Speak In Code] is a lyric from ‘Curtain,’ and there was something kind of evocative about it. In that song, I’m referring to being newly sober and just feeling like an open nerve, feeling freaked out, having people and life being sort of overwhelming. It’s almost like people are speaking a language you don’t understand.”
