10,000 Maniacs
10,000 Maniacs
Founded in the fall of 1981 in Jamestown, NY, 10,000 Maniacs has won the hearts and ears of music fans around the world selling over 10 million records. Together with artists like R.E.M. and The Replacements, they helped define “college rock” and the first wave of “alternative rock” bands with their pop-conscious, literate and lush aesthetic.

Playing Favorites was released in early June on Omnivore Recordings and is the follow up to the band’s highly acclaimed 2015 release Twice Told Tales (Cleopatra Records), a full-length collection of traditional British Isles folk songs. Recorded in Jamestown in front of an enthusiastic crowd, Playing Favorites is a stellar collection of live renditions of 14 of their greatest hits including: "These Are Days," "Because The Night," "Hey Jack Kerouac," "Trouble Me," "What's The Matter Here," "Like The Weather" and more. Playing Favorites is available physically and digitally worldwide.
