The Exies are thrilled to announce their long-awaited comeback EP, “Closure“, set for release on Friday, June 28th. Alongside today’s announcement, the band have also released a brand new video for their latest single, “s.A.D“.

As a significant milestone in The Exies‘ illustrious career, “Closure” marks their first body of work in over a decade and features a collection of tracks that delve into themes of reflection, resilience, and new beginnings. The upcoming EP will feature the band’s signature – a blend of infectious rock anthems weaved together with introspective lyrics, embodying the band’s lasting legacy.

Lifting the curtain behind the “Closure” EP, frontman Scott Stevens shares:

“Closure is about moving from the past so one can walk through the door to the next chapter.

Diving into the latest single “s.A.D.“, frontman Scott Stevens adds:

“I wrote ‘s.A.D’ during the grip of the Covid shut down at its highest point. It’s the 1st song that I had written for myself in a long, long time and it became the catalyst for the Closure EP really. It’s about wanting and needing a change. Really reaching to touch and live out your dreams but something always seems to knock you back a peg, yet still remaining optimistic that better days are ahead.”

Formed in 1997, The Exies released two influential LPs with Virgin Records, ‘Inertia‘ and ‘Head For The Door‘, achieving combined sales of over 500k and spawning singles that charted at rock radio. Both albums secured positions on the Billboard 200 chart. Their third album “A Modern Way of Living with the Truth” came out in 2007 before the group disbanded in 2010.

The Exies’ music gained significant exposure through placements in numerous video games and tours alongside rock giants like Motley Crüe and Velvet Revolver. Following their hiatus, Scott Stevens continued to leave an indelible mark on the musical landscape with co-written songs amassing over 2 billion streams and selling over 40 million albums.

Now, The Exies are poised to pick up right where they left off with their reunion show and latest single, bringing together the nostalgia of their storied past and the freshness of their current creative evolution.

“For the Viper Room, it’s family; it’s where we got signed. Everything that made a difference for us happened there, so it’s fitting that this is where the reunion show would be held,” Stevens shares, emphasizing the sentimental venue choice for their comeback performance.

As their highly anticipated return to the stage nears, The Exies are poised for an unforgettable reunion show at the legendary Viper Room on LA’s Sunset Strip, scheduled for May 29th and hosted by none other than Matt Pinfield. Tickets for the Reunion Show are available now HERE.

Join The Exies as they embark on the next chapter of their extraordinary musical journey.

ABOUT THE EXIES

The Exies, formed in 1997 and named in homage to John Lennon’s shortened term for the 1960s art students in Hamburg that called themselves “the existentialists”, had a prosperous journey, peaking with 2003’s Inertia and 2004’s Head For The Door. Both albums were released by Virgin Records and, combined, sold more than 500,000 copies.

In 2007, The Exies put out their third full-length, A Modern Way Of Living With The Truth, before disbanding three years later. Despite frontman Scott Stevens‘ pivot to songwriting for others, amassing significant accolades and contributions to over 40 million album sales, the band’s 2010 dissolution left him longing for closure. This yearning and finding himself at a loose end in the beginning days of the pandemic, Stevens began to write and soon realized that new The Exies songs were materializing before him it just started to unfold happen without him realizing. Speaking on the experience, Stevens shares

“Once I committed to writing and producing for others, I really went in,” he explains. “I just jumped in the ocean and didn’t think about writing for myself anymore. And that’s why it was so odd when I went for a walk in 2020—outside with a mask on—and all of a sudden I hear a melody in my head and I’m like, ‘Who’s that? What’s that?’ And all of a sudden I realized that that’s my voice. It was very puzzling in the beginning, and then it started happening more and more. I don’t know what spurred it on or what caused it. Time? Not being able to work as much? Maybe my mind drifting a little bit more because I have to work. Nobody was coming over here because nobody was going anywhere. And I didn’t want to Zoom write, because although it’s kind of a way of life now and I love it, I was like ‘What is that?’ I really didn’t think about writing for The Exies again until it started haunting me.”

The first of which, ‘Spirits High‘ was released in 2023 and achieved significant success at rock radio. For What It’s Worth” is the next step in the new era of the band. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for more coming from The Exies soon.
