THE BLACK CROWES' new release, Croweology - released on Tuesday, August 3rd via band's label Silver Arrow through Megaforce Records - sold approximately 21,000 copies in the US in its first week of release. The set has landed at #13 on the Billboard 200 chart. In Canada, Croweology lands at #54 on the Album Chart.
Croweology spans The Black Crowes’ revered catalog with acoustic renditions of 20 songs from their two decades of cosmic rock 'n' roll. Commemorating the 20th anniversary of their landmark multi-platinum debut, 1990's Shake Your Moneymaker, Croweology gives listeners an intimate retrospective, stripping away these fan and band favorites like 'Jealous Again', 'Remedy', 'She Talks To Angels' and 'Wiser Time' to their very essence through brand new recordings, captured in 2009 at Sunset Sound Studios in Los Angeles. Given its scope and bright approach, the Paul Stacey-produced Croweology is worth studying for both longtime fans and newcomers alike.
In order to thank fans for 20 years of support, Croweology is priced at the cost of a single album. In addition, it is available on vinyl and as an iTunes LP.
The Black Crowes will hit the road - with multiple nights in many key markets - on their Say Goodnight To The Bad Guys tour. In most cities, the band will perform for three hours: a 90-minute "Acoustic Hors D'oeuvres” set, followed by a 90-minute “Electric Reception with The Black Crowes".
While on tour, The Black Crowes will be inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame on September 11th at the 32nd Annual Georgia Music Hall of Fame Awards Show. The official induction will feature a live performance by The Black Crowes.
Presented by Friends of Georgia Music Festival, Inc, the evening will take place at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in North Atlanta. The event marks the third decade that the non-profit organization has recognized Georgia’s accomplished artists and musicians for outstanding achievements.
