Stones Return With A Bigger Bang
July 26, 2005

Rolling Stones

After all these years, The Rolling Stones can still deliver their music and live shows with a bang, and on September 6 they will release A Bigger Bang, their first new studio album in eight years. The band chose the title to reflect their fascination with the scientific theory about the origin of the universe.

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards began penning songs for the album last fall. Key cuts include the first U.S. single, "Rough Justice," the international single "Streets Of Love," and "Back Of My Hand," which is said to be a raw, rough-edged song with a classic Rolling Stones Blues vibe. Other titles include "It Won't Take Long," "Laugh, I Nearly Died" and "Rain Fall Down," as well as two tracks featuring Richards on lead vocals: "This Place Is Empty" and "Infamy." The set was produced by Don Was and The Glimmer Twins (aka Mick & Keith).

The Stones will kick off their world tour at Fenway Park in Boston on August 21. Following 35 scheduled dates in U.S. and Canada, the band will then tour Mexico, South America, the Far East, New Zealand, Australia, and finally Europe in the summer of 2006. As previously reported, different opening acts along the way include Pearl Jam, Maroon 5, Joss Stone, Beck, Our Lady Peace, The Tragically Hip and the John Mayer Trio.
