Third Eye Blind has more than 30
songs written for the band's still-untitled follow-up to 1999's
Blue. The band hasn't gone in to
record the tunes, however, since its new studio was just completed.
Meanwhile, singer Stephan Jenkins is following up his role in
film Rockstar with an appearance in an independent movie
currently in production in Los Angeles. The film, called Angelic
Tuesday, is directed by Simon Gornick. Jenkins plays a
loner named Matt in the film.
LAUNCH asked Jenkins how he makes room for acting in a world of Third
Eye Blind. "Sometimes people go, 'So which is it? Are you a musician or
an actor?' I'm entirely and completely a musician. I'm really about
making music, and that's my life's work," he said. "When a race car
driver goes out and plays tennis, nobody goes, 'So are you a tennis
player?' I also cook chicken. That doesn't make me a chef."
