Tinted Windows Lyrics Follow
Tinted Windows is an American rock supergroup formed by guitarist James Iha, previously of The Smashing Pumpkins, singer Taylor Hanson of Hanson, bassist Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne and Ivy, and Bun E. Carlos of Cheap Trick. Josh Lattanzi also often performs with the band as the second guitarist. This new project will run alongside all the artists' main bands. The first performance by the band was on March 18, 2009 at Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa, Oklahoma in a small show at the side-stage. The band made their South by Southwest Festival debut in Austin, Texas on Friday, March 20, 2009 at the Levi/Fader Fort, followed by a set at Pangaea. The band also played at The Bamboozle music festival in New Jersey on May 3, 2009.
On February 19, 2009, it was announced that the band signed with S-Curve Records, the label best known for releasing such acts as Joss Stone, Fountains of Wayne and Tom Jones. On April 21, 2009, it was confirmed that their self-titled album Tinted Windows had been released on that label.
On February 24, the band digitally released, through their website and on Rolling Stone magazine's website, their debut single "Kind of a Girl" alongside a promotional video, with a segment from a fictional music show Rock After Dark. They performed the song on Late Show with David Letterman on April 21. They performed on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on April 24. Syndicated FM radio, ranging from metal programs to Little Steven Van Zandt's Underground Garage, continued playing multiple cuts from the album through 2009.
Tinted Windows played concerts in the US in June, August and September 2009, and in Japan in January 2010.
The band's Facebook page has not had a post since December 6, 2009. And while the band initially appeared on their record label S-Curve Records' website, they were removed from the artist lineup sometime between June 6 and August 8, 2011 .
But in 2014, band member Taylor Hanson mentioned the band to the press a number of times. In an interview published October 9, 2014 with Coup De Main Magazine, Hanson stated that the band was still together and there was "some process going on now to make a new album." However, since then and as of 2018, no news, material, or concerts have been announced.
