In August 1991, the Spin Doctors released their full-length debut album “Pocket Full Of Kryptonite". Relentless touring and a wave of positive press kept the album alive into the next year, when sales began to increase dramatically. The album was certified gold in September 1992 and received an additional boost from the band's October appearance on SNL, “Kryptonite” entered the Billboard Top Ten one month later. By June 1993, the album was triple platinum and had breached the Top Five among Billboard Pop Albums while spinning off two major hit singles: "Little Miss Can't Be Wrong" and the No. 1 Rock radio song of 1993, "Two Princes." Ultimately, “Pocket Full Of Kryptonite” sold over five million copies in the US and another five million overseas.
Thirty years. It’s an eternity in rock ‘n’ roll, and a marathon for the bands who fly its tattered flag. The Spin Doctors are the last men standing, still making music like their lives depend on it, still riding the bus, still shaking the room. They’ve never been a band for backslaps and self-congratulation. Even now, plans are afoot for a seventh studio album and another swashbuckling world tour, adding to their tally of almost two thousand shows.
