Third Eye Blind is an American alternative rock band formed in the early 1990s in San Francisco. The songwriting duo of Stephan Jenkins and Kevin Cadogan signed the band's first major label recording contract with Elektra records in 1996 which was later reported as the largest publishing deal ever for an unsigned artist. The band's lineup changed in 2000, ending the songwriting partnership of Jenkins and Cadogan. As of 2013 the band's lineup consists of Stephan Jenkins (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Brad Hargreaves (drums, percussion), Kryz Reid (lead guitar), Alex Kopp (keyboards), and Alex LeCavalier (bass guitar).
After the success of their eponymous debut album in 1997, the band released one more album, 1999's Blue, before guitarist Kevin Cadogan was released from the band under controversial circumstances. In 2003, the band released Out of the Vein. In 2008, the band released the digital EP Red Star. After a six-year hiatus from releasing a full-length album, Ursa Major was released on August 17, 2009. A fifth album is also being worked on, without a tentative release date. Jenkins indicated that this would be the band's final album.
The band is best known for the singles "Semi-Charmed Life," "How's It Going to Be," "Graduate," "Jumper," "Never Let You Go," "Deep Inside of You," "Crystal Baller," and "Blinded." VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90's included "Semi-Charmed Life" at #34. Third Eye Blind ranked #138 on the Top Pop Artists of the Past 25 Years chart. Third Eye Blind has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.
