Believe it or not, and San Francisco-based alternative rock band Third Eye Blind has been around for over twenty years. The group formed in 1993, although they wouldn’t begin to see some of the chart-topping success that they continue to enjoy until the release of their self-titled album in 1997. That was the album that featured several hit singles, catapulting the group into stardom.
The band continues to record and tour. They will be appearing live at Fallsview Casino on September 24th, bringing their singular sound and style, in addition to all of their massive hits.
Third Eye Blind Biography
After coming together in 1993, the group quickly established themselves as one of the singular, talented bands on the always-busy San Francisco music scene. After recording a number of demos and albums, Third Eye Blind hit it big in 1997. It was during this time that Stephan Jenkins, Brad Hargreaves, Kryz Reid, Alex Kopp, and Alex LeCavalier released their self-titled debut album. It was an immediate hit, featuring such tracks as “Semi-Charmed Life”, “Graduate”, “How’s It Going to Be”, and “Losing a Whole Year.” Of all these songs, “Semi-Charmed Life” was easily the most popular. It remains a song that the band is very keenly associated with. It has remained a staple throughout their many world tours.
Success came to Third Eye Blind with that album, and the group quickly proved that they were not one-hit wonders by any means. The self-titled record was followed up with 1999’s Blue record. This album came very close to matching the popularity of their breakout release two years earlier, offering fans such tracks as:
- “Never Let You Go”
- “10 Days Late.”
The group then followed this album up with Out of the Vein, which garnered strong attention early on for the single “Blinded.”
Following the release of Out of the Vein, the band took a six-year hiatus from releasing records. Fan anticipation built for the next release, and 2009’s Ursa Major did not disappoint. With tracks like “Don’t Believe a Word” and “Bonfire”, it was clear to fans that the group had not missed a single step between albums.
They still haven’t missed a step. Additional albums have been released, which suggests that the band is on a hot streak of productivity. Along the way, they have maintained a frantic tour schedule throughout the United States, Canada, and other countries. These shows draw rave reviews for their energy and set list variety.
