I know man, they were awesome with Kevin. And thanks for the props, Kevin is my favorite lyricist ever. He's up there on par with Anthony Green, skill-wise. Of course that's just my opinion.

I disagree. They were part of the whole Breaking Benjamin/Red/Crossfade metal type scene. What really set them apart though was Kevin's voice.

Kevin's in a band called Parabelle now. It was originally a side project that he did with a couple guys from Framing Hanley and a couple other guys too but since Kevin and one of the Framing Hanley guys both got kicked out of their bands they decided to run with it.

See here: http://www.myspace.com/parabelle

Kevin's also working on a solo album, I had the pleasure of actually chatting with him on AIM. =D

His myspace is here: http://www.myspace.com/kevinmatisyn

I wouldn't say they were mainstream at all. Their instrumentation was pretty unique back when Kevin was around because I think the collab to combine his vocals with the band demanded it. But now that Chandler is in, they're pretty much a Breaking Benjamin knock-off and sold themselves out.

Yup. Here's some stuff from EB's wikipedia entry:

In late March 2006, Evans Blue embarked upon their first U.S. tour alongside Taproot. They have since played with bands such as Staind, Alice in Chains, 10 Years, Three Days Grace, Flyleaf and former labelmates Breaking Benjamin.They were accompanied by Framing Hanley, Fair to Midland and Submersed throughout the summer 2007 tour, which spanned through September. Framing Hanley rejoined the band for the tour, with the additions of Saving Abel and Canadian rockers Neurosonic.
