May 23, 2014 - Los Angeles, CA - Eve 6 frontman Max Collins released a new music video for his song "World On Fire" onNYLON Guys today. Watch the video here: "World On Fire" is the second single off Max's debut solo albumHoney From The Icebox. Heralded by VICE's Noisey, Stereogum, Artist Direct, World Lifestyle, The Gunz Show, AbsolutePunk and more, fans can purchase the album on iTunes here:

Max spoke about the video, "Thad Bridwell, the director of the video, met Francis (the Native American man in the video) while shooting a short film in Joshua Tree National Park a few months back. His car broke down miles from civilization and Francis happened to be driving by," Max explained. He continued, "he towed and fixed Thad's car himself. Thad told me about him and I made the decision to put him in every video I make for my new record Honey From The Icebox.

"We shot the video near Joshua Tree. It was the week of the government shutdown so we couldn't get into the park but Francis took us to a locals only spot 30 mins off road. It was the perfect setting for the clip. We knew we wanted Francis to turn Dominique Arciero (my keyboard player) into a lampshade and we wrote the rest of the treatment around that."

Rather than using Eve 6's label, Fearless Records, Collins chose to fund Honey From The Ice Box with a PledgeMusic campaign. He surpassed his initial goal with the help of 907 pledgers, the end result being a total 134% funding. Fans were enticed to pledge Max's campaign with incentives such as a trip to Medieval Times and the opportunity to get matching tattoos with Max. See more about his PledgeMusic campaign here:

Max, who funded the recording himself, co-produced the album with Eve 6 guitarist Jon Siebels and enlisted a slew of musicians to accompany him in Estudio in East Los Angeles in February. Brian Young of Fountains of Wayne and Jesus and Mary Chainplayed drums while Nick Johns, who tours with Ben Lee, contributed keyboards.

Max, who has released five albums with Eve 6 since their inception in 1995, including 2012's Speak In Code, plans to tour Honey From The Ice Box with a full band. For him, this album represents the beginning of something, an initiation into what he hopes will be an extensive solo career that will eventually yield more music. "My goal is to be able to have a solo career that's characterized by consistent effort," Max says. "I write all the time and this process was so gratifying for me. I'd like to develop a new relationship with my fans in this context and hopefully make some new ones."
