Counting Crows Release New Album And Begin Second Leg Of Tour
In the spirit of their new album Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did On Our Summer Vacation), Counting Crows will be introducing some of their favorite artists on the second leg of their headlining summer tour, The Outlaw Roadshow, which grew out of the Outlaw Roadshow indie rock showcases that Adam Duritz and Ryan Spaulding of Ryan’s Smashing Life have been staging at CMJ and SXSW in recent years. Supporting the Crows on The Outlaw Roadshow’s 2nd leg this summer will be We Are Augustines, Kasey Anderson and The Honkies, and Field Report.
Produced by Counting Crows and Shawn Dealey, Underwater Sunshine features tracks written by artists such as Big Star, Gram Parsons, Tender Mercies, Kasey Anderson and The Faces. Each rendition offers an entire spectrum of human emotion, delivered with the conviction and intense honesty the band is known for.
As their first independent release, it was the right time for the Crows to make this album. “If you wonder why we didn’t just write our own record, it’s simply because we wanted to do THIS one,” says Duritz..
