In recent years, the tale of Blind Melon has taken a dramatic turn – from an abrupt and tragic end to a rebirth and reconnection with their legion of fans. On the road since February 28, the band have played sold out shows across the U.S. in support of their new album, “For My Friends,” their first studio album in over a decade. They reformed in 2007 with singer Travis Warren replacing the late Shannon Hoon.

During this time the group has graced the stages of a number of festivals, including Langaredo, Summer Camp, Jubilee Jam and Birmingham City Stages. Blind Melon also performed on the upcoming NBC Special “For The Troops,” a tribute to the U.S. Troops and their families, scheduled to air later in 2008.

Their recent tour kicked off this week in Ridgefield, NY and goes through October 10 in Vancouver, BC, but additional shows are expected.

Blind Melon originally formed in 1990 in Los Angeles, CA, and the group released its now-classic, self-titled debut album in 1992. Their song “No Rain” became a smash on radio and MTV.
