Fountains Of Wayne To Release “Sky Full Of Holes” On August 2nd
Fountains Of Wayne have confirmed that their 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 and the 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.
The band returns to the stage with shows at 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. Stay tuned for tour dates, we’ll post them as soon as we receive them!
