Two previously unreleased tracks bolster "Ten Years Gone - The Best of Everclear 1994-2004," due Sept. 28 via Capitol. Along with such hits as "Santa Monica," "I Will Buy You a New Life" and "Father of Mine," the collection features "New Disease" and "Sex With a Movie Star."

Both of the tracks were recorded in the sessions for the Art Alexakis-led band's last album, 2003's "Slow Motion Daydream." Japanese versions of the set carried "New Disease" as "Your New Disease" (also available online to domestic owners of the enhanced disc).

Also included are a pair of songs the band placed on movie soundtracks. "Local God" was among the cuts on Capitol's modern-rock heavy 1996 "Romeo + Juliet," while Everclear's cover of Thin Lizzy's "The Boys Are Back in Town" was included on Polygram's 1999 "Detroit Rock City" soundtrack.

As previously reported, Alexakis is representing Portland, Ore., as an elected delegate at the Democratic National Convention, which closes tonight (July 29) in Boston. Now the sole remaining original member of the band, he is planning a fall Everclear tour followed by a new studio album in 2005.
