Fountains Of Wayne
Formed in New York in 1996 by Chris Collingwood and Adam Schlesinger, Fountains Of Wayne took their name from an iconic garden store in nearby Wayne, New Jersey. The group’s line-up includes guitarist Jody Porter and drummer Brian Young and has remained unchanged since they toured in support of their 1996 self-titled debut album. The band has received steady critical accolades since its inception; including nominations for two Grammys. MOJO Magazine included Fountains Of Wayne in their book, The Greatest Albums Of All Time, calling the band "almost better than anything, ever."
Fountains Of Wayne’s long-awaited fifth album proper, Sky Full Of Holes, will be released by Lojinx in Europe on the 1st of August 2011. This is the acclaimed band’s first new release since 2007's Traffic And Weather. The album will be released by Yep Roc in North America and by Warner in Japan.
