THE BLACK CROWES TO RELEASE ‘WARPAINT’

FIRST STUDIO ALBUM OF ALL NEW MATERIAL IN SEVEN YEARS

DUE OUT MARCH 4 ON THEIR OWN SILVER ARROW RECORDS LABEL,

DISTRIBUTED BY MEGAFORCE/SONY RED BMG

BAND TO PERFORM ‘WARPAINT’ IN ITS ENTIRETY ON LIMITED

“ONE NIGHT ONLY” SWING

From the beginning, THE BLACK CROWES have done things their own way. And it’s good to know that some things don’t change.

WARPAINT—the band’s first album of all-new studio material in seven years, due out March 4 worldwide—will be independently released on the band’s own newly formed Silver Arrow Records and distributed through Megaforce/Sony Red BMG. It’s their first studio release since the acclaimed LIONS album in 2001 (on V2).

Produced and mixed by Paul Stacey at Allaire Studios, Woodstock, NY, the album features 11 songs, all of which were written by CHRIS and RICH ROBINSON, except “God’s Got It” by the Reverend Charlie Jackson. The album builds compellingly on the band’s trademark adventurous brew of rock, blues, country, soul and gospel.

WARPAINT marks the recording debut of two new band members—guitarist Luther Dickinson and keyboardist Adam MacDougall--who join CHRIS and RICH and drummer Steve Gorman and bassist Sven Pipien. Dickinson, of North Mississippi Allstars, officially steps in to replace producer/guitarist Paul Stacey, whose position with the band was always intended to be temporary. THE BLACK CROWES are deeply appreciative that Stacey committed his genuine talent and time to the band and their performances for most of 2007.

The album’s complete track listing is: “Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution,” “Walk Believer Walk,” “O, Josephine,” “Evergreen,” “We Who See The Deep,” “Locust Street,” “Movin’ On Down The Line,” “Wounded Bird,” “God’s Got It,” “There’s Gold In Them Hills,” and “Whoa Mule.”

CHRIS says the album’s title signifies “the revolution that could take place in all our souls.”

Meanwhile, for the first time in their 18-year career, THE BLACK CROWES will perform an album of theirs in its entirety. On a special run of “One Night Only” shows beginning on March 4, fans will experience WARPAINT performed in its entirety, after which the band will play songs from their catalog and selected surprises. Dates TBA.

THE BLACK CROWES will begin their world tour March 24 by headlining the Byron Bay Festival in Australia. They’ll continue their down under trek—their first since 1991—through April 5 before playing special engagements in Tokyo, Amsterdam and London, and concluding with shows in Hamburg and Cologne, Germany (dates TBA).

THE BLACK CROWES have sold over 20 million albums and are known as one of rock’s best live acts. They have been called “The Most Rock n’ Roll Rock ‘n’ Roll Band In the World” and a “thoroughbred American rock ‘n’ freakin’ roll band”; their panoramic live shows feature alternating set lists and signature incendiary musical explorations.

ACCLAIMED!!!!!!!!!??????????:confused: I acclaim it a piece 'o' shite!! Or should that be proclaim? Axe? anyone?:rolleyes:

At least at this stage they are going to tour Oz after backing out of the last proposed tour. I will be there if I have to shift hell to do it and I pray that the new album is a far better effort than 'Lions';)

I think its cool that they are going to do the whole cd at shows. Nice way to promote it.

Kind of confused about the track listing. They have played several other new songs over the last 18 months -- will they be putting out another new cd in 2008?? I was hoping "Late Nights Again" would make the cut.

yeah, i gotta say that lions was pretty uneven looking back at it.

as for the tracklist, I read that the new songs they have already played were scrapped on this album. a couple of them are on the brothers of a feather release though.

I'm on record as saying Lions has its moments so I'd better jump in and defend it!

with a different producer, different vibe and a bit of pruning Lions would have made a great lp - some times though, its good just to play this VERY VERY LOUD

looking forward to the new album :p

Hey! What's wrong with Lions?! Not their best record, that's for sure, but sounds good to me. And yes, you have to play it very loud. It's rock and roll, baby! :)
