SELECTIONS FROM: GIN BLOSSOMS / NEW MISERABLE EXPERIENCE
Gin Blossoms is an American alternative-rock band formed in 1987 in Tempe, Arizona. Hailed by critics and fans alike for their chiming guitars, introspective lyrics and catchy pop-rock melodies, they rose to prominence following the 1992 release of their first major label album, New Miserable Experience (August 4, 1992) and the first single released from that album, "Hey Jealousy". The album was released to little fanfare and relatively lackluster reviews. However, nearly a year after its release the lead single "Hey Jealousy" entered the top 40. With "Found Out About You" following a few months later, the album became the band's breakthrough release. New Miserable Experience eventually reached quadruple platinum status and had 5 charting singles.
