With Special Guest: Robert Schwartzman of Rooney
Fountains of Wayne's long-awaited new album, Sky Full of Holes, will be released in the US on August 2 via Yep Roc Records, their first release on the NC-based indie label. This is the acclaimed band's first new release since 2007's Traffic And Weather.
Recorded in New York City, Sky Full of Holes features 13 new songs by Chris Collingwood and Adam Schlesinger, ranging from high-energy power pop to intimate, acoustic-driven ballads. Songs like "The Summer Place" and "Richie And Ruben" showcase the band's renowned storytelling abilities and flair for creating memorable characters; elsewhere, they take a more impressionistic approach, as in the shimmering "Someone's Gonna Break Your Heart" and the elegiac "Cemetery Guns" (a lyric from which provides the album's title). In signature FoW fashion, the album manages to be simultaneously witty and wistful, imaginative and personal.
