Review for Gin Blossoms: 

One of the top alt-rock groups of the ‘90s, Gin Blossoms--Robin Wilson (lead vocals and guitar), Jesse Valenzuela (vocals and guitar), Scott Johnson (guitar) and Bill Leen (bass)—are on the road again this summer for a new leg of New Miserable Experience Live and will stop in Chattanooga on Aug. 7. 

The tour follows a successful run of dates when the band celebrated the 25th anniversary of their multi-platinum album breakthrough album New Miserable Experience by performing it in its entirety, along with other Gin Blossoms classics and more. The band filmed their Feb. 22 House of Blues in Chicago show for a commemorative New Miserable Experience Live DVD/CD 2 disc set.

Gin Blossoms recently issued their first new album in eight years, the critically acclaimed Mixed Reality (produced by Don Dixon), which is highlighted by such singles/videos as “Break,” “Face The Dark” and “Wonder.” The band’s blend of introspective lyrics, ringing guitars and finely etched melodies is as strong as ever throughout the album.

“The band is playing great, everybody’s getting along,” Robin Wilson told Houston Chronicle in a story by Andrew Dansby headlined “Gin Blossoms Blooming Again.” "At my age, 30 years later, to be able to play this record and have people treat it like a big part of the songbook for our generation, it’s special. It’s nothing I could’ve predicted. It’s been a celebration, and it’s been cathartic.”

While in NYC earlier this year for a sold-out show at Bowery Ballroom, the band stopped by the Paste Studio to film an acoustic session which included their version of Radiohead’s “Fake Plastic Trees.”
