Counting Crows add second leg to "Roadshow," offer free BitTorrent package
Along with adding a second leg to their impending "Outlaw Roadshow" tour, alt-rockers Counting Crows have unveiled a BitTorrent bundle of tracks from the brand-new "Underwater Sunshine."
Since last check, another nine stops have been tacked onto the summertime excursion, which begins June 6 in Asbury Park, NJ. The latest leg kicks off July 17 in Brooklyn, NY, and pushes through an Aug. 11 performance in Billings, MT.
Tickets for the second round of shows, which will feature support from We Are Augustines, Kasey Anderson and The Honkies and Field Report, go on sale May 18 at Counting Crows' website.
Fans and BitTorrent users have access to four tracks from the new album--"Untitled (Love Song)," "Like Teenage Gravity," "Hospital" and "Meet on the Ledge"-- as well as frontman Adam Duritz's liner notes and high-res album artwork. The BitTorrent download is available here.
"Underwater Sunshine," Counting Crows' sixth full-length studio effort, hit shelves last month via London's Cooking Vinyl. The album, which marks the group's first release since 2008's "Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings," is comprised of 15 cover songs, including tracks by Tender Mercies, Fairport Convention, The Faces, Dawes and Big Star, among others.
