3ebAfter having been unofficially announced within Third Eye Blind‘s bio on any number of venue websites where 3EB will be performing on tour this summer with Dashboard Confessional, it was incorrectly stated that Dopamine, 3EB’s first release in 6 years, was set for a Spring 2015 release date. That quote can be found below:

“3EB will release Dopamine, their first studio collection in six years, in Spring 2015.”

Third Eye Blind have officially announced that Dopamine will be released on June 16, 2015.

UPDATE: A new song entitled “Everything is Easy” was posted to Rdio. It seems as though it has since been removed.

UPDATE: “Everything is Easy is now on YouTube and has been released for purchase as the first single from Dopamine.

Here at OBR, we might be pretty sarcastic, overly critical, and try too hard to be funny—but we also like to think we can admit when we’re wrong! In the previous post regarding Raine Maida’s stellar forthcoming solo album, We All Get Lighter, OBR falsely reported that the last track, “Numbers,” had an Alvin-and-the-Chipmunks vocal track and was a poor way to end the album. Well, that would have been true, but it turns out that the stream of “Numbers” on Rdio.com, which OBR’s silly jumping-to-conclusions columnist used to hear and evaluate the record, had some technical difficulties in the first couple of hours it was available. In fact, the vocal track was not supposed to sound like that at all. Sorry, Raine, for falsely accusing you; although I do feel somewhat special in that I must be one of only a few thousand or so people to have heard the messed-up version of the track. We’re looking forward to hearing the song with the proper vocal track! Again, a thousand apologies to Mr. Maida and any readers that may have been thrown off-track.
