The Black Crowes To Release New Album, Go On Indefinite Hiatus

Planet Rock is reporting The Black Crowes are to release a brand new acoustic album this summer, hit the road for North American dates and then take a �lengthy� hiatus.

The new album, Croweology, is released in the US on August 3, and will be followed by a long North American tour entitled Say Goodnight To The Bad Guys, which will conclude at the band�s annual multi-date stand at the Fillmore in San Francisco.

The album features 20 of the band'�s best loved songs rearranged and rerecorded acoustically. The double album is by way of a thank you to their fans after 20 years of support since the classic Shake Your Money Maker LP.

Chris Robinson had this to say, "With a smile so wide you can count my teeth and with a heart so full of love that it is spilling over the rim, I offer a humble and simple thank you. Thank you for your time, your imaginations, your heartaches and joy. Thank you for 20 years of cosmic rock n roll. 20 years of keeping it weird. 20 years of chasing horizons and before the band that dares dream out loud puts it down for a while, we are proud to give you our Croweology. This year the music is only for you as we celebrate what has been, what is now and whatever will be".

Rich Robinson said, "At this milestone in our career, I feel very fortunate that I have had the opportunity to spend my life making music. It's been 20 years since we started out on this journey. I would like to extend my deep gratitude to all of our fans who have been there with us along the way. We would not have gotten here without your support. Every night I stand on the stage I feel great pride and respect for what we share with our fans. After this tour we are going to take some much needed time to spend with our families. But for now, we are very much looking forward to a great year of touring. I look forward to seeing all your familiar faces again on the road. See you soon."

The tour will see the band play three hour sets, with half acoustic and half electric.
