Counting Crows have announced plans to hit the road in support of their new album, 'Underwater Sunshine (or What We Did On Our Summer Vacation),' a collection featuring covers of tunes by the likes of Dawes, Gram Parsons, Big Star, the Faces and Teenage Fanclub, Bob Dylan and others. The smattering of dates launch with a March 9-10 two-night stand in their hometown of San Francisco, while 'Underwater Sunshine' drops April 10.
