The band has released 17 albums; their most recent, COVERS, features 22 of the band’s favorite songs first recorded by other artists.

The Smithereens have played over 2,500 live shows, including the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, Meadowlands Arena in New Jersey, Radio City Music Hall, and internationally – and now, at Suwanee Town Center!
