Now here’s a tour that would make a great “Grownups Night Out,” especially for those with an affection for 1990s alternative rock. A rep for FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE just hit The Rock Father with details on their Fall trek, which will also feature SOUL ASYLUM and EVAN DANDO of THE LEMONHEADS. The first batch of dates can be found below, with more expected to be announced in the weeks ahead.
About the Lineup:
Fountains Of Wayne have released five critically lauded LPs, beginning with their self-titled 1996 debut, which spawned modern rock hits like “Radiation Vibe” and “Sink To The Bottom.” But, ironically, it was their third album, 2003’s Welcome Interstate Managers, that earned them a Best New Artist Grammy nomination, as well as a pop breakthrough with the single “Stacy’s Mom.” Their most recent full-length release is Sky Full Of Holes.
Minneapolis’ Soul Asylum started out recording for legendary indie Twin-Tone in the mid-80s, but achieved multiplatinum major-label success in the 90s with their albums Grave Dancers Union and Let Your Dim Light Shine, which contained ubiquitous hit singles like “Runaway Train,” “Somebody To Shove,” and “Misery.” Their latest releases are the 2012 album Delayed Reaction and the new covers EP, No Fun Intended.
Evan Dando has been fronting The Lemonheads since he was a teenager in Boston in the mid-80s. After signing with Atlantic Records in the 90s, the band had a string of alternative and college radio hits, became MTV staples with their cover of “Mrs. Robinson,” and Dando graced the covers of countless magazines. In the 2000s Dando released a solo album, Baby I’m Bored, and continued to release music and tour under the Lemonheads moniker with various lineups. In 2012, Laughing All The Way To The Cleaners, a 2-disc compilation of Lemonheads’ recordings for Atlantic, was released.
