As expected, the Black Crowes are back, with estranged brothers Chris and Rich Robinson set to play a 46-date summer tour, marking their first shows together since 2013. Rolling Stone reported the group will perform its multi-platinum 1990 debut album Shake Your Money Maker in its entirety, along with a smattering of other hits and favorites.

The band launched the reunion with a gig last night (November 11th) at New York City's Bowery Ballroom and will take the stage on Thursday (November 14th) at L.A.'s Troubadour club. The official tour kicks off properly on June 17th at Austin's Austin360 Amphitheater in Austin wraps on September 19th at the Forum in L.A. Joining the brothers will be a all new lineup of the Crowes featuring guitarist Isiah Mitchel, bassist Tim LeFebvre, keyboardist Joel Robinow, and drummer Ojha.

Chris Robinson, who's been busy over the years with his solo band, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, told Rolling Stone the new tour will hearken back to the Black Crowes' original style, explaining, "I think this is pure. We went off into a lot of things. There's no jamming. There's no extraneous stuff. This is the purest Black Crowes that people first (heard). I hope we reconnect with some people who lost their way with us because of all of our other sh** we were doing."

Rich Robinson, who's been recording and touring with his latest outfit, the Magpie Salute, spoke frankly about the obvious family politics in reuniting with his older brother: "No one is here to be a d***. We love this music. We're musicians. We're brothers. We love each other. We love this opportunity. Changing the context with Chris and I and all new people is a much healthier place for us."

A while back, Rich Robinson shed some light on how the band has been dubbed over the years, "the most 'rock n' roll' rock n' roll band in the world." The tag originally came from a cover story in Britain's Melody Maker, which the Crowes always thought was a goof: "That was a joke. This guy wrote this scathing review of us, and basically said, 'These guys are the bunch of bitchiest,' y'know, 'most pain-in-the-ass, drug-induced,' he just went on, all and all. And then at the end, he, they said, 'Let's face it -- this is the most 'rock n' roll' rock n' roll band in the world.' So we just sort of stole it, and thought it was funny."

Chris Robinson told us that he basically operates on feel and he goes about making music the same way he's always gone about listening to music: "Y'know, the way you feel when you connect with a band -- when you go to something that you know is going to be more important than being seen there, or who else is going 'cause it's the cool thing -- you're going because, y'know what? It's not cool. It's something that is important to you. That's the motivation for everything."
