Black Crowes Preparing for New Album and Tour Before Going on Hiatus

By April 20, 2010

Follow me on:

The Black Crowes have been extremely active since reforming in 2005, putting out two studio albums (including the superb Before the Frost...Until the Freeze) and touring extensively. 2010 looks to be another busy year for the Southern-rock sextet, what with the release of a new record and a planned four-month tour, but they've just announced that after these forthcoming shows they'll be going on an indefinite hiatus.

Speaking with Rolling Stone, the Crowes said they'll be putting out Croweology, a double-disc acoustic collection of old songs, in August, which is when the tour will begin. Asked how long this hiatus will last, frontman Chris Robinson said, "Two years, five years, 10 years -- you never know when you jump into the void." The band broke up back in 2002 after years of bad blood and declining commercial fortunes, but the band members said that those factors had nothing to do with this decision. "This cycle we've been on has been incredible," Robinson said. "Since the summer of '07, when we made Warpaint, it's been the three most fulfilling years I've ever had with this band. But if we kept going, we might be playing with fate too much ... we should walk away from this while everyone's in a good mood."

The tour will feature some shows that will be divided into two halves consisting of a 90-minute acoustic set followed by a 90-minute electric set. The rest of the tour will be all electric. No matter which show you attend, though, know that this is the last time you'll get to see the Black Crowes for the near future.
