from blabbermouth.net:

THE BLACK CROWES take flight like never before with their first-ever double album of all acoustic material, "Croweology". Due out Tuesday, August 3 via band's label Silver Arrow through Megaforce Records, it features new arrangements of their best-loved songs and the band's catalogue picks. The iconic and influential band will celebrate the album's release that evening with a performance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" and perform the next night, Wednesday, August 4, on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Next, they'll kick off a four-month North American tour August 13. It will wrap December 19 with an epic six-night stand in San Francisco at The Fillmore December 12-19, after which Chris Robinson (vocals/guitar), Rich Robinson (guitar), Steve Gorman (drums), Sven Pipien (bass), Luther Dickinson (guitar) and Adam McDougall (keyboards) will go on a lengthy hiatus to catch their collective breaths and spend time with their families.

"Croweology" spans THE BLACK CROWES' revered catalog with acoustic renditions of 20 songs from their two decades of cosmic rock 'n' roll. Commemorating the 20th anniversary of their landmark multi-platinum debut, 1990's "Shake Your Moneymaker", "Croweology" gives listeners an intimate retrospective, stripping away these fan and band favorites like "Jealous Again", "Remedy", "She Talks To Angels" and "Wiser Time" to their very essence through brand new recordings, captured in 2009 at Sunset Sound Studios in Los Angeles. Given its scope and bright approach, the Paul Stacey-produced "Croweology" is worth studying for both longtime fans and newcomers alike.

In order to thank fans for 20 years of support, "Croweology" will be priced at the cost of a single album. In addition, it will be available on vinyl and as an iTunes LP. Listeners will get their first taste of "Croweology" when "Jealous Again" and "Morning Song" hit radio this week.

Following the album's release, THE BLACK CROWES will hit the road — with multiple nights in many key markets — on their "Say Goodnight To The Bad Guys" tour. In most cities, the band will perform for three hours: a 90-minute "Acoustic Hors D'oeuvres" set, followed by a 90-minute "Electric Reception with The Black Crowes".

While on tour, THE BLACK CROWES will be inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame on September 11 at the 32nd annual Georgia Music Hall of Fame awards show. The official induction will feature a live performance by THE BLACK CROWES. Presented by Friends of Georgia Music Festival, Inc., the evening will take place at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in North Atlanta. The event marks the third decade that the non-profit organization has recognized Georgia's accomplished artists and musicians for outstanding achievements.

    This is good news about the album, it is only a USA tour and have you seen the schedule? How they do it is a mystery, a tour like that must take a lot out of the band.

    They do have a pretty amazing schedule for sure. They're well aware about how much it takes out of them so maybe that's why the hiatus will follow.
    I sure hate to see them go and hope this won't be the end of the Crowes for good, but hey even if it is we can look forward to some good stuff from Chris and Rich in the years to come....maybe even some new stuff together like Brothers of a Feather, would love to see an acoustic album with just those two. Plus, Luther will still be rockin' it out with the North Mississippi Allstars.
    I will say that after listening to the version of My Morning song on Croweology that I am really excited about the album now. I was thinking new material would have been a better send-off or even a set of rarities, but I think this is going to be pretty cool

    Just listened to the download and it's pretty good, especially for free, thanks for the tip. I envy you guys going to see them, thought about flying over but works out too expensive.
    A question for the experienced musicians, do you think so many tour dates so close together can affect the quality of the shows?

    Depends on how high they get and how many munchies they eat before bed on the bus. :D :lol:

    From a musicianship standpoint, I don't think so, as its essentially 3 hrs of jamming a day, which can only make a band tighter. However, from a physical exhaustion standpoint, it depends on what type of shape they're in.

    At first I was sad I'd miss them in NYC, but then saw they're playing in DC, so the Crowes could possibly be my first concert in college :)

    Going to UMaryland, the Crowes are playing the 9:30 club in DC in November. Love this close proximity!

    You can get the Croweology version of Jealous Again free from Amazon.

    Not a big difference from the album version but very well done.
