In that case we are in for a treat of an album.

Dip in the Ocean, Cold Comfort Flowers, Cemetery Guns, Summer Place and the other one; they all sound really nice.

According to something Jody wrote yesterday on a friend's facebook page:

"for this week atleast. album not out til aug so i'm taking advantage of this. cali next week i spose. come say something in person?"

Aren't I the little stalker? :-)

So August it is. Let's hope this sticks. I cannot wait any longer.

Just remember that Jody is playing in a number of bands atm, that might not (but probably does) refer to the Fountains of Wayne album

13 new songs! I was kinda expecting say 10 or 11 (some bands do less on their own). Looks like it will just be a 4 piece tour without the keyboards.

Makes sense though!

from their press release:



FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM AUGUST 2

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 Fountains of Wayne fashion, the album manages to be simultaneously witty and wistful, imaginative and personal.

Formed in New York in 1996, Fountains Of Wayne took its name from an iconic garden store in nearby Wayne, NJ (which, sadly, closed recently). The band has received steady critical accolades since its inception; “Dean Of American Rock Critics” Robert Christgau has called them “lyric poets” and “true art heroes.” The group’s line-up, which also includes guitarist Jody Porter and drummer Brian Young, has remained unchanged since they toured in support of their 1996 self-titled debut album. Fountains of Wayne were nominated for two Grammys, including a slightly belated Best New Artist nod, in 2003, after scoring a hit with their third album, Welcome Interstate Managers.

Sky Full Of Holes is the band’s fifth full-length release, not including 2005′s two-disc B-side compilation Out-Of-State Plates. Produced by Collingwood and Schlesinger, it was mixed by longtime collaborator John Holbrook, who also worked on Welcome Interstate Managers and Traffic And Weather.

Sky Full Of Holes will be released by Yep Roc in North America and by Warner in Japan, where the band will play the legendary Fuji Rock Festival in late July. Other international release dates will be announced shortly. The band returns to the stage with shows at legendary New Jersey clubs the Stone Pony (July 23) and Maxwell’s (July 24 and 25th); they will tour extensively in support of the new album, beginning with a string of US dates in August and September.

(I'll buy it dont worry but) it'll probably leak long before that, our best bet is early july, one month or so before the release.

We already know 5 songs (cemetary, summer place, then: road song, cold confort and dip in the ocean are probably on there), that's already really solid. Masterpiece on the way indeed :banoonoo::bigsmile::singing:
