Gin Blossoms are set to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of their multi-platinum breakthrough 1992 album New Miserable Experience with a tour beginning in February before hitting the road with Barenaked Ladies this summer.
The Gin Blossoms will kick off the year “Celebrating 30 Miserable Years” Tour playing the album in its entirety starting in Florida on February 18 and will hit such markets as Nashville, TN, Houston, TX and St Louis, MO. The 30 city summer tour will include stops in Los Angeles, New York (Summerstage) as well as Red Rocks.
New Miserable Experience sold over five million albums, was on the charts for almost three years and produced five hit singles that played on four radio formats. Ubiquitous on pop, rock, and alternative radio in the 90s, the Gin Blossoms classics include “Hey Jealousy,” “Follow You Down,” “Found Out About You,” and others.
“Till I Hear it From You” was the lead single on the Empire Records soundtrack and was described by Billboard as “the closest thing to a perfect pop song to hit radio in recent memory.” The Grammy Nominated band’s songs remain a constant at radio today and the band continues to play them in concert at an astounding 100+ shows per year.
Lead vocalist Robin Wilson recently reflected on the anniversary of the album, saying, “It was hard to make NME, but we knew it was special. It’s humbling that it still resonates and we still have jobs in the music biz.” Guitarist Jesse Valenzuela adds, “Its funny how time slips away. We are still so proud that even after all these years the album still resonates with fans.”
