Third Eye Blind was everywhere in 2016. We Are Drugs hit iTunes top 5 alternative records. They sold out numerous headline shows and set attendance records at 2016 Summer music festivals worldwide including Outside Lands, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Tokyo’s Summersonic, and UK’s Reading and Leeds Festivals.
3eb have continually trended, making headlines in the political arena with Stephan Jenkins’ hold- nothing- back opinion pieces and trolling of the RNC.
Third Eye Blind are clearly one of the most vibrant and volatile rock acts of the moment.
3eb also recently landed on national headlines during a surf session when they were filmed by paparazzi while rescuing a group of kids caught in a rip current off the beaches of North Carolina. This lifeguard incident came with a special twist, as it occurred after the band had just performed a benefit show in support of the NC Transgender community’s efforts to defeat the odious HB2 legislation.
They’ve made appearances for charitable organizations like “Make Room,” Children’s Hospitals, and PETA. Stephan is a strong supporter of the Jimmy Miller foundation, a project especially close to Stephan’s heart where Stephan shares surfing with active duty Marines and Vets afflicted with PTSD.
The release of the We Are Drugs EP is the next chapter in Third Eye Blind’s legacy – a fully-realized body of work that incorporates the band’s perfect pop sensibility with an ever-present progressive intent. Jenkins utilizes his characteristic rhythmic vocal style and lyrical prowess on issues of identity, connection, isolation and authenticity while keeping a sharp eye on a culture in rapid change.
