EVALINE – with a full quota of startling tracks – rock songs that use layered sounds, intense guitars and swooning vocals matched with a high energy live show that has been gathering fans throughout the world in every city they play.
Fresh out of school, Evaline’s earliest recordings found their way to The Used’s Quinn Allman who produced the EP: Postpartum Modesty, a Portrait of Skin – released on Madonna’s Maverick label in 2006. Two Warped tours and a Taste of Chaos tour quickly attracted a loyal and ardent fanbase in USA. Now in their early twenties Evaline are Richard Perry, (Vocals, Cello and keys) Dominic DiCiano (Guitar), Steven Pedersen (Bass), Christian Lewis (Guitar) and the Petersen brothers Greg (drums) and Dan (guitar).
By late 2010 the band had finished recording a stack of new songs for their debut album, titled ‘Woven Material’, produced by Dan Austin (Doves, Cherry Ghost, QOTSA ) which includes the singles Hours and There There (mixed by Adrian Bushby). The lead album track ‘Beneath The Fire’ was also chosen as iTunes Single of The Week in USA on 28th June, and consequently helped the album to no. 8 in iTunes Rock chart and no.43 on Billboard Heatseekers chart in week of release. ITunes UK chose There There to be their Single of the Week on the 19th July. The album has been released throughout SE Asia on Universal and is due for Autumn release in Australia in October on Shock.
In the last year the band have supported Deftones, Neon Trees, Dredg, Placebo, Young Guns and Paper Tongues and their shows at SXSW 2011 earned them rave reviews including andPOP’s ‘top 6 bands of SXSW’. The band have just left Europe after impressing European festival crowds with shows at Hard Rock Calling (London), T in The Park (Scotland), Werchter (Belgium), Hurricane/ Southside (Germany), Arras Festival with Coldplay (France) and were handpicked by My Chemical Romance as support at the iTunes Festival in London. They returned to the USA for a West Coast club headline tour and to support Linkin Park at Las Vegas. They will be back in Europe and the UK in the autumn to support Bush.
In addition they played Music Matters in Singapore in May to rapturous praise.
