Third Eye Blind embody the feel good alt-rock music of the ’90s. Their hits including “Semi-Charmed Life” and “Never Let You Go”, defined late ’90s modern rock and catapulted the band to major success. 

See the full summary of Third Eye Blind’s career from Delaware Online.

The San Francisco based alt-rock group was born out of the Bay Area rock scene along with other bands like Green Day. They released their first demo in 1993, however, it was with their second EP that they gained attention from record mogul Clive Davis who invited the band to perform a showcase for Arista in 1995. While they didn’t secure a contract, Third Eye Blind managed to score the opening slot for rock supergroup Oasis at their San Francisco Civic Auditorium show in 1996. All of the industry buzz generated a bidding war with Elektra Records ultimately signing the band to a major label deal. Third Eye Blind released their self-titled debut in 1997 and were immediately successful. The lead-off single, “Semi-Charmed Life” was the first of several #1 Modern Rock Tracks from the album and also shot to #4 on the Hot 100.

The self-titled album released hit single after hit single. Third Eye Blind tour dates were added to the opening segment of U2’s PopMart Tour and they gained an international following. The album was eventually certified six-times platinum by the RIAA and the singles “How’s It Gonna Be” and “Jumper” ensured that the album spent nearly two years on the Billboard 200. They regrouped in 1999 to release their sophomore album Blue. After a slow start, the album gained traction with the second single “Never Let You Go”, which became a top ten track. The Third Eye Blind concert schedule included a whirlwind international tour which kept them on the road for a couple of years.

Upon returning, they constructed a recording studio to produce their third album Out of the Vein. The album was released in 2003 and debuted at #12 on the Billboard 200 becoming their highest charting album.

In 2007, Third Eye Blind tour dates were booked in commemoration of the ten-year anniversary of their debut album. They performed at San Francisco’s famed Filmore venue and cut a live DVD of the event. They released their fourth album Ursa Major on their own label, Mega Collider Records, in 2009 and forged a comeback. The album debuted at #3 on the Billboard 200, becoming their highest charting album and their first to reach the top ten.

In 2012, Stephan Jenkins stated that Third Eye Blind’s fifth studio album would be their last. Since then, fans have been teased with hints at recording and possible singles, but no new music has been released. Their show at the Queen was a much needed live performance for die-hard fans.
