Exclusive Sprocket Details

0823_toad_the_Wet_sprocketGreat news fans of 1991 ... TOAD THE WET SPROCKET IS BACK!!!!

TMZ just received a news release from the band ... announcing an official release date for a new TTWS album (October 15).

Apparently, the band split up in 1998 ... after releasing a string of hit ... but felt compelled to reunite after a Kickstarter campaign raised more than $260k.

And there's more ... in case you're craving some live Sprocket ... which is really the only way to hear them ... the band has also announced a new tour.

No word on who's opening for the band. Calls to Better Than Ezra were not returned.

Would rather hear their music than this crap we get from Bieber & Weezy.

Oh the flashbacks this is causing! Not that I really care that much about a new album, they were a one hit wonder band. Maybe they should go on a early 90s "super tour" with the Gin Blossoms, Soul Asylum, EMF, Mr. Big, and Jesus Jones.

This is the easy listening crap that gets played when you're on hold over the telephone or waiting in an elevator.

Just a couple things...they raised over $260k in about two months. Obviously they DO have a fan base that IS happy for a new album. Also, they have BEEN touring for the past few years. Not sure why this even made your site as an "incredulous" story. The facts basically prove that it's not hard to believe they have a new album coming out. Guess Lindsay wore underwear today and Kanye didn't dress his baby ma.a in a bad outfit.

There's a Kickstarter campaign to stop Harvey's rap CD from ever being released.

Typical TMZ garbage. Not only was much of the story factually incorrect, but what they did post wasn't even worth anything. TTWS may not have the pop effect of some larger pop bands, but they have a steady, loyal following that gobbles up their live and recorded music, and it's worthy of TMZ's respect. But what am I thinking? TMZ is just the IRL version of "TMI" from HBO's "The Newsroom"

They announced that on Adam Carolla's podcast weeks ago. It isn't news. What is news is that Adam Carolla had a project that raised 1.4 million dollars for his next movie with absolutely NO media coverage of it.
