Eve 6 is an alternative rock band from Southern California, who disbanded in 2004. Their musical genre has often been classified as punk or post-grunge. The band formed in 1995 in La Crescenta, California as Eleventeen; the name Eve 6 was only adopted later, after they already had a recording contract and were looking for a replacement drummer. Tony Fagenson, who auditioned while attending the University of Southern California, was an X-Files fan. After seeing the episode "Eve", which featured genetically engineered characters known as "Eves," he got the name from the character called Eve #6 who made a remark about biting a guard's eyeball, which Fagenson thought merited "Eve 6" as a band name.

Eve 6's basic rock trio (guitar/bass/drums) sound is augmented on their later studio recordings with many interesting studio techniques. For example, "Bang" (from Horrorscope) culminates in a section constructed entirely from repeated, overdubbed layers. Eve 6 also made liberal use of overdubbed vocals and other studio polish, such as the vocoded filigree directly preceding the breakdown section of "On The Roof" (from Horrorscope). The songs themselves generally conform to the late 90's pop-punk aesthetic, and can be roughly divided into four different categories: the sugary-sweet bubblegum pop of "Rescue" and "Promise" (from Horrorscope), the punk of "Hokis" (from It's All in Your Head) and "Superhero Girl" (from Eve 6), ballads, such as "Hey Montana" (from It's All in Your Head) and "Here's to the Night" (from Horrorscope), and anthems (characterized by beginning almost inaudibly, with sparse instrumentation, and ending climactically) such as "Arch Drive Goodbye" (from It's All in Your Head).

Eve 6 was perhaps best known for its lyrics, however, which feature vivid imagery and inventive wordplay: two of the group's hits, "Inside Out" (from their self-titled album) and "Promise" (from Horrorscope), are good examples of this style. The nostalgic ballad, "Here's to the Night" is probably the most notable; it is characterized by a pleasant change in tempo and style from the band's other songs. While the song was written about a one night stand, for many teenagers it was misinterpreted as a song about the closing of an era (specifically of high school), and was chosen by many graduating senior classes to be their "class song."

Breakup - Poor sales of It's All In Your Head due to lack of promotion on the labels part (192,000 Units Moved) resulted in Eve 6's release from their record contract with RCA. Subsequently announcing their breakup, Eve 6 played their final show together on the night of July 15, 2004 in front of a large crowd under the famous Gateway Arch in St. Louis. However, Max and Tony have reunited to form a new band currently called Sugi Tap. They have already recorded some demos and plan to play shows throughout the California region during the summer of 2006. Jon Siebels is currently in a band called Monsters Are Waiting.

EVE 6 is back!

Eve 6 returns to the musical world after a 3 year break from touring: Former RCA recording artists best known for smash hit "Inside Out" and graduation anthem "Here's To The Night" book shows; begin plans for a new album (October 6, 2007).

"After a 3 year hiatus, we're getting our stuff together to get out there and play for you all once again. We've given it a lot of thought and ultimately decided the best thing to do would be to make more music as Eve 6. There isn't a defined plan for a new album yet, but one will eventually be forthcoming" said Fagenson in a blog post on Eve 6's official Myspace page. Since starting the official Myspace page in February 2007, Eve 6 has accumulated over 15,000 "friends", and over 1 million song plays, averaging nearly 10,000 plays per day.

Eve 6 burst onto the scene as teenagers in 1998 with their certified platinum self-titled debut. After touring for over 6 years and releasing 3 albums on RCA, Eve 6 and the label decided to part ways in early 2004. Eve 6 played their planned "final" show in July, 2004 at a spectacular outdoor concert underneath the historic gateway arch in St. Louis and then disbanded.
