New Jersey-based power pop band Fountains of Wayne burst onto the scene in the late 1990s, armed with catchy hooks and clever lyrics on songs like “Stacy’s Mom” that have made them indie rock favorites and critical darlings since the band’s inception.

Fun fact: Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne penned the Oscar-nominated song “That Thing You Do!” from the movie of the same name.

 

Background:
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 selftitled debut album. FOW 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 twodisc 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). These will be followed by a pair of New York City shows: an electric set at the Bowery Ballroom (August 3) and a full-band acoustic set at City Winery (August 5). Both NYC shows will go on sale May 6.

They will tour extensively in support of the new album, beginning with a string of US dates in August and September.
