In terms of new media savvy, The Black Crowes fall somewhere in between the heavy metal litigiousness of Metallica and the alternative, post-record label embrace of Radiohead. Which basically means Steve Gorman, the band’s drummer, has a Q&A blog for fans and a podcast about sports, and the band itself announced it has a web series that will soon debut.
The Black Crowes will release 20 Years of Tall Tales on August 3. Filmed by John Vanover at Chris Robinson’s home in Los Angeles, the series will detail two decades worth of stories from one of the most successful rock ‘n roll bands of the 90s. New episodes will premier every day throughout the entire month of August.
The web series coincides with the release of Croweology, The Black Crowes’ “first-ever double album of all-acoustic material with new arrangements of their best-known songs and deep cuts.” All of which is a delight to anyone who spent a small chunk of his or her middle school experience trying to learn all the words on Shake Your Moneky Maker.
