THE BLACK CROWES ANNOUNCE RELEASE OF NEW CD
AND GIVE FANS A FREE SECOND ALBUM


‘BEFORE THE FROST…UNTIL THE FREEZE’ DUE IN STORES SEPTEMBER 01, 2009


A LIMITED EDITION VINYL AVAILABLE

THE BLACK CROWES will release their new studio CD, Before the Frost... on September 1, 2009.

A second album, titled …Until The Freeze, will be given away for free exclusively through a unique download code which is included in Before The Frost… as a “thank you” to their fans for two decades of continued support.

Before the Frost..., and its corresponding free album …Until The Freeze, were recorded over a series of five nights at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, NY. Although both are studio albums, all the new material was performed and recorded in front of an intimate audience of the band’s fans, making them a part of The Black Crowes musical history.

The innovative technique of inviting fans into the studio as part of the process during recording is a rare experience.

Before the Frost... features eleven new and previously unreleased Black Crowes songs including Good Morning Captain, I Ain’t Hiding, Been a Long Time (Waiting on Love), and other original songs that will serve to spotlight the bands ability to make emotional connections through their music. The free album …Until The Freeze is a nine-song collection featuring eight new original Black Crowes songs plus a cover version of the Stephen Stills classic So Many Times.

A limited edition vinyl release of Before The Frost…Until The Freeze, featuring all 20 tracks, will also be available on September 1, 2009.

Chris Robinson conceived the concept of Before the Frost...Until The Freeze.
“I think we fulfilled a musical commitment to continue on the golden road of artistic independence. Approaching 20 years into our careers, we still are ambitious enough to push ourselves to create something unique that we have never done before.”

As The Black Crowes approach the upcoming 20th anniversary of their release of one of rock’s most influential records, Shake Your Money Maker, which produced such hits as Jealous Again, She Talks To Angels and Hard to Handle, they are time and again hailed as one of Rock and Roll’s best live acts.

Good Morning Captain
Been A Long Time (Waiting On Love)

A Train Still Makes A Lonely Sound

Their last album was pretty disappointing. What are the chances of a double album recorded over five days being much better?

Southern Harmony was recorded in a week

Reviews from hardcore Crowes fans were really positive (Warpaint is a 50/50 shot at best with a lot of them), and the fact it was recorded "live" should only help matters

They played I Ain't Hiding a couple of times in Europe last month, and it's not bad. Definitely a bit of a departure but it still has a great swampy rhythm and sound to it

Warpaint kicked at least 3 or 4 kinds of ass. Definitely gettin an even rootsier sound. I won't put Warpaint up there with SHAMC, Amorica or 3 Snakes, but they are one band that is definitely aging very gracefully.

Can't wait for the double vinyl.

Warpaint had some excellent songs on it.

Love the free album, love the idea of recording it live with an small audience. Interested to see how it all works out. I'll be at the store grabbing it the day it come sout.

Warpaint was ok.

I'm actually excited though, to hear they recorded a double album in such a short time. They must have felt pretty good. I don't see them as a band that would put out just anything.

GOOD FRIDAY
YOUNG MAN, OLD MAN (sounded great with the extra percussion)
BLACKBERRY
ANOTHER ROADSIDE TRAGEDY
WALK BELIEVER WALK
NONFICTION
MY MORNING SONG (this was EPIC)
LOCUST STREET
GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY
COMING HOME
COULD I’VE BEEN SO BLIND
BY YOUR SIDE
JEALOUS AGAIN
REMEDY
MOVIN ON DOWN THE LINE
- encore -
DESCENDING
DON'T DO IT

* Joe Magistro played percussion the entire show

* encore was written down on setlists as Shapes of Things and Hard to Handle

Was this a festival show? That setlist seems kinda short.

nope, second show of two at Hampton Beach, which they play almost every summer

about 120-130 minutes. A LOT of sick jams, most songs were 7-10 mins, MMS was a good 15 or so.
