The Black Crowes have come clean.
On the heels of a teaser campaign that implied a comeback, the rock band featuring once-estranged brothers Chris and Rich Robinson has officially reunited, and they're touring in 2020.
Last week cryptic digital billboards started appearing off I-94 in Milwaukee and in other cities showing two cartoon crow heads with Xs over their eyes. The same logo appeared on the Black Crowes website and blank Facebook and Twitter accounts late last month.
On Monday the Crowes announced they would be touring amphitheaters across the United States this summer in honor of the 30th anniversary of debut album "Shake Your Money Maker," which will be performed in its entirety, along with other hits. The band had 16 top 10 hits on Billboard's U.S. Rock charts in the '90s, including "She Talks to Angels" from "Maker," and subsequent hits like "Remedy" and "Sting Me."
To celebrate the announcement, the Black Crowes are playing intimate shows at the Bowery Ballroom in New York tonight and the Troubador in Los Angeles Thursday, with details to be announced on the band's Instagram page.
Tickets are available now for the 45-city summer tour at livenation.com.
This will be the band's first tour since 2013. The band officially disbanded in 2015 for the second time, with Rich Robinson releasing a statement suggesting his brother demanded that he give up his equal share of the band.
But the brothers were offering much kinder statements in light of the reunion Monday.
"I'm thrilled and blessed to be playing with my brother celebrating the music we've made and bringing our lives together full circle," Chris Robinson said in a statement.
"First and foremost, I'm really happy to have my brother back in my life," Rich Robinson said in his own statement. "To be able to play music again together and celebrate the first record we made as kids is a gift. To have these songs stand up after 30 years is something I could've never fathomed."
While the Robinson brothers are back together, drummer Steve Gorman, whose played drums in the band since 1989 and was the only other member to play in the Crowes through the second breakup, will not be part of the reunion. In an interview with Ultimate Classic Rock last month, following a Wall Street Journal report suggesting a reunion was in the works, Gorman said he wouldn't be part of the comeback tour.
