Product Description

The Gin Blossoms are the poster boys for the lasting benefits of touring. New Miserable Experience, the multi-platinum modern-day classic that put the band on the map, broke through as the direct result of nearly a year of intensive roadwork, during which the Blossoms built a large and loyal base, fan by fan. After a long hiatus, the Blossoms burned up the road again in '05, consistently selling out shows and reinvigorating their fan base with new repertoire that is among the best the band has penned. 2006 will be a big year for the band with the release of Major Lodge Victory. The record features the first single, Learning the Hard Way a fitting title for the band's long time together (and apart). The record is loaded with wonderful and soon to be timeless hits. There are 12 songs, 12 new reasons to love the Gin Blossoms.

After a string of hits across the first half of the nineties, the Gin Blossoms disbanded by the decade's end. With the appearance of a greatest hits collection continuing to keep their songs alive, the band did a reunion show that led to a full fledged tour in 2002. Returning to the studio with a dozen new songs, Major Lodge Victory is their first new album in ten years. It's full of guitar hooks wedded to emotionally evocative lyrics ("I promise I won't hurt you anymore" "Mama said your life wouldn't be too easy, that's about the only thing she said at all"), most songs being by band founder Jesse Valenzuela. Robin Wilson's lightly vibratoed vocals have an evocative presence that call to mind Richie Furay (Buffalo Springfield anyone?). The band manages to be at once crisp and powerful, occasionally finding grooves to settle into, but never straying far from the dramatic needs of each song. --David Greenberger
