EVOL is the third studio album by the American alternative rock band Sonic Youth. It was released in May 1986 by SST Records, the band's first release on the label. The album is notable for being the first with a new drummer, Steve Shelley, replacing Bob Bert, and for showing signs of the band's transition from their no wave past toward a greater pop sensibility.
In September 2011, Sonic Youth went on "indefinite hiatus" following the separation of Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore (the couple had been married since 1984). Вебсайты: sonicyouth. at, Bookogs, scaruffi.

The record was finally reissued on Geffen/Goofin' in 2006 w/ seven exclusive live tracks from 1981, and an instrumental demo of "I Dreamed I Dream". Though their first gig billed as Sonic Youth was in May 1981, the roots of the band date back to late 1980.
