Described by J-14 as “your newest obsession,” EVARIDE received viral success by racking up over four million streams on Spotify, an ‘Artist of The Month’ feature from iHeart Radio and performance sessions for iHeart Radio, Billboard, Shazam and Tidal.
Check out the VOL. 1 track listing below:


  1. Heartless
  2. What’s It All For?
  3. Warrior
  4. Skin and Bones
  5. Wanted
  6. Limbo


EVARIDE debuted in 2017 with their single “Heartless.” Murray was handpicked by Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day for the starring role of Johnny in the hit Broadway show American Idiot while Maringer, has toured with artists including Jennifer Lopez, Demi Lovato, and The Band Perry, and appeared on a multitude of performances on national television programs including the “American Country Music Awards,” “Billboard Music Awards,” “Ellen,” and “American Idol,” as well as appearing as the lead guitarist for the hit Fox TV show “Glee.”
The band worked alongside several top producers on VOL. 1 including Gregg Wattenberg (Train, Goo Goo Dolls, Gavin DeGraw, Daughtry and Phillip Phillips), Colin Brittain (All Time Low, 5 Seconds of Summer, Dashboard Confessional), Doug Rockwell (Hollywood Records, New Hope Club, Marvel Rising, Sabrina Carpenter), Grammy Award-winning mix engineer Chris Lord-Alge, Claudius Mittendorfer (Panic at The Disco, Fall Out Boy and Weezer) and Michel “Lindgren” Schulz (BTS’ “Boy with Luv”).
“We’re super excited to be launching our debut EP and hope everyone can relate to at least one song off it and take something away from it,” adds MURRAY. “We feel like every song, musically, has a little bit of something for everyone. Some of the songs are uplifting and motivational and others are more ‘questioning your own reality’ type songs, but also accepting sometimes what reality is and being ok with it, especially when certain things are out of your control.”

The duo, who recently appeared live at Adam Carolla‘s World Championship of Guacamole event in Los Angeles, CA on October 19 and played alongside artists like Khalid and Bebe Rexha at JBL Fest in Las Vegas on October 11, have also shared a lyric video for their latest single “Limbo,” below:



“‘Limbo’ is a track we wrote very early on as a band,” explains MARINGER. “We wrote the song from our own experiences with love and relationships. Sometimes you reach a point in a relationship where you both end up unhappy, but still share love for one another. You look back and wonder how you can get back to what it was. You want to stay in that place forever and go back to the start. You want to stay lost in limbo and never leave. It is the last track on the EP because although it only took two days to write, it took two years to get it where we wanted production wise and sonically.”
