SANTA MONICA, Calif., Oct. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Platinum-selling hit-makers the Gin Blossoms have returned to the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart with their highly anticipated new album on 429 Records, "NO CHOCOLATE CAKE." With a fantastic first week debut at #73, the band is back and proving once again that their effortless brand of melodic pop rock is as vibrant and beloved as ever. The first single, "Miss Disarray" (which PopMatters states "is easily the best slice of pure frosting...") is also ready to crack the Hot AC Top 50. Buoyed by an adoring fan base and legions of new fans gained through a tireless touring schedule, the band is again poised for success.
With total worldwide album sales topping 10 million units powered by their indelibly melodic, Grammy-nominated Top Ten singles, Gin Blossoms—Robin Wilson, Jesse Valenzuela, Scott Johnson and Bill Leen, are back and in peak form. Says the San Antonio Express-News of "NO CHOCOLATE CAKE:" "Gin Blossoms tug at the heart strings like few pop bands...power pop nirvana." The eleven new tracks were written, produced and performed by the band with the help of John Richardson (drums) and Danny Wilde on keyboards and additional production (of The Rembrandts). The band will be touring extensively throughout 2010 and 2011.
