Counting Crows

(May 19, 2014) – Counting Crows have signed an agreement with Capitol Records for the Fall release of their forthcoming studio album, Somewhere Under Wonderland, it was announced today by Capitol Music Group Chairman & CEO Steve Barnett. It will be the band’s sixth studio album and first since Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings in 2008.

The band will appear on tonight’s episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers to celebrate the announcement and perform their hit “Round Here.” Late Night airs 12:35/11:35c on NBC.


“I’m happy to announce that the new Counting Crows album SOMEWHERE UNDER WONDERLAND will be coming out this Fall on Capitol Records!!!” said lead vocalist Adam Duritz. “Just like The Beatles!!!”

Barnett commented, “It’s not surprising that Counting Crows have built and maintained such a successful career for more than 20 years. The solid bond between the band and their audience has been forged through their great recordings and exciting live performances, and that relationship will continue with the release of Somewhere Under Wonderland and their forthcoming tour. I join everyone in our company in welcoming Counting Crows to Capitol.”

Counting Crows – Adam Duritz (vocals), Jim Bogios (drums), David Bryson (guitar), Charlie Gillingham (keyboards), David Immergluck (guitar), Millard Powers (bass) and Dan Vickrey (guitar) – have sold more than 20 million albums worldwide after exploding onto the music scene with their multiplatinum breakout album August and Everything After in 1993.

Known for creating unique and innovative concerts and consistently ranked as one of the top live bands performing today, Counting Crows can be seen this summer on the North American leg of their major worldwide tour this summer. The tour kicks off June 11 in Tampa, FL and will travel through major markets, including their hometown of Berkeley, CA, before concluding in Los Angeles at the historic Greek Theatre on August 17.

Due to illness, Trivium will be unable to perform this weekend at Rocklahoma.

“My family and friends, I always call for each of you to give their all – as you always do – and in turn we in Trivium return the favor with everything we’ve got. As it turns out, I quite literally gave everything I could have given just yesterday at Rock On The Range in Columbus, OH when my voice blew out by the end of yesterday’s set. My doctor’s orders are that I need two weeks of rest before I resume singing and as a result Trivium will cancel our remaining shows this week, including our performance at Rocklahoma. My apologies to all our friends who were hoping to see us and my brothers in arms: Paolo, Corey, and Mat.” — Matt Heafy

Filling their slot at the festival will be We Are Harlot, coming off their debut, much talked-about performance at Rock On The Range this past weekend. The new project from Danny Worsnop (of Asking Alexandria), Jeff George (formerly of Sebastian Bach), Brian Weaver (of Silvertide) and Bruno Agra will perform on the Hard Rock Stage on Saturday night at 8:30pm.
