Third Eye Blind Frontman Stephan Jenkins Has Revealed The Group's Upcoming Album With Be The Last Traditional Record He And His Bandmates Will Release, Opting For Digital Distribution Of Their Songs In The Future.
The Semi-Charmed Life hitmakers will release their fifth studio album, Dopamine, next month (Jun15), and in a new interview Jenkins insists it will be the band's last.
He tells HuffPost Live, "It's going to be the last LP, in the sense of the standard practice of writing a bunch of songs, recording, setting up the album, all of those things.
"When I write a song, I want to post it, send it out to the universe, and it's done. I think my process now works better with the digital tools for uploading. I'm not going to worry about ways to monetise this; I'm going to go by the happiness quotient."
Singer/songwriter Jackson Browne, Third Eye Blind star Stephan Jenkins and rock group Dawes have become the latest celebrity supporters of the Occupy Wall Street movement after performing for protesters in New York on Thursday (01Dec11).
The three artists braved the cold and windy weather to stage brief acoustic gigs in the demonstrators' former makeshift base in Manhattan's Zuccotti Park as activists campaigning against corporate greed gathered to watch the impromptu shows.
According to reports, Browne strummed on his guitar as he sang Casino Nation, while Dawes treated protesters to a rendition of When My Time Comes, among other songs.
After the mini-concerts, campaigners took to the streets, marching across the city to show their support for members of the New York City Central Labor Council, who are organising their own rally to call for job and economic equality.

Mark Wahlberg couldn't be more perfect for the role of Chris Cole, "Rock Star's" head-bangin' hair band wannabe whose singular ambition in life is to be e-x-a-c-t-l-y like the shirtless, leather-clad, pelvis-thrusting, high note-shrieking lead singer of the heavy metal band Steel Dragon.
He looks absolutely vintage, sporting metalhead tresses and screwing up his face in imitation sneers. He revels in Cole's absurdly passionate perfectionism in fronting a Steel Dragon "tribute band" and embraces Cole's humorously inconsequential real life as an on-call Xerox technician who still lives with his parents.
He belts out the tunes of the fictitious Steel Dragon with amazing range and the earnestness of an insanely zealous fan -- so much so that while in the front row at a Steel Dragon concert he rather unnerves his hero by loudly singing along with more gusto than the man himself can muster.
