The Smithereens Announce More Tour Dates!

"Meet The Smithereens!," the Affectionate Homage to the Fab Four's Groundbreaking Record "Meet The Beatles!," in Stores Now!

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/12/07 -- The Smithereens have announced additional tour dates in support of their new album, "Meet The Smithereens!," which is in stores now.

The album pays homage The Beatles' groundbreaking album, "Meet The Beatles!." The Smithereens have rerecorded the album in its entirety, and the result is a fun and nostalgic trip through 12 classic songs done Smithereens style. "Meet The Beatles!" influenced not only their musical style, but arguably influenced the style of every rock band since the album's initial release in January of 1964.

The CD also features liner notes by legendary promoter Sid Bernstein, musician (and some would say musicologist) Lenny Kaye, Beatles historians Bruce Spizer, Dennis Mitchell and Andy Babiuk, author of the fantastic book, "Beatles Gear."

Having released 7 albums -- and reaching Gold and Platinum status along the way -- during their career, the Smithereens spawned several Top 40 radio hits, including, "A Girl Like You," "Too Much Passion," "Blood and Roses" and more.

"Meet The Beatles!" was the Fab Four's second album, but their first official U.S. release. But unlike its British counterpart "With The Beatles!," which was comprised mostly of cover songs, "Meet the Beatles!" featured songs written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, and proved to be mind-shattering to music fans in an age in which artists rarely wrote their own material.

Here's what critics are saying about "Meet The Smithereens!":

The improbably long-lived Smithereens, against all odds, succeed in making forty-three-year-old music sound new again. - Rolling Stone

"[Meet the Smithereens!] bridges the extremes of note-for-note fidelity and pure interpretation, offering the best of both worlds... The album manages to scream Beatles 1964 and Smithereens 2007 all at once." - The New York Times

"Frontman Pat DiNizio and his mates pull off 'Meet The Smithereens!' in classy fashion." - San Diego Union Tribune

"It makes you want to hold their hand." - Boston Globe
