    The Monkees in1966: Peter Tork, right, and Mickey Dolenz. At bottom: David Jones, left, and Mike Nesmith.
    One of the biggest rock bands of the 1960s is swinging back into action.
    Hey, hey, they’re the Monkees — and they’re celebrating their 50th anniversary with their first new album in two decades — and a national tour that that hits Town Hall in New York on June 1.

    The created for television group, comprised of Davy Jones, who died in 2012, Micky Dolenz, Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork racked up 20 singles on the Hot 100 in its career.
    No. 1 hits like “I’m a Believer,” “Daydream Believer” and “Last Train to Clarksville” exemplify the band’s vocal harmonies, lush arrangements and catchy melodies.

    The Monkees are shown in this 1966 photo.
    Not bad for a foursome formed in 1965 in Los Angeles for the TV series “The Monkees.” They outsold the Beatles and the Rolling Stones in 1967.
    Set to drop on June 10, the new album from Dolenz, Nesmith and Tork is called “Good Times.”
    In addition to unfinished tunes from the ’60s co-written with Neil Diamond and Harry Nilsson there’s new material by songwriters Noel Gallagher, Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo, Ben Gibbard, Andy Patridge and Adam Schlesinger.

    That's pretty much never possible to pull off. Even with really good bands which have been around a long time it's interesting that they put out a new album but there isn't much point in it. Sabbath did it, a few others, the music wasn't horrible but they've already gone through having a great album maybe a few and then petering off. Why would a new album be good it doesn't really make any sense. The Monkees were a jokey pop band though so whatever.

    Considering Nesmith is the most talented musician in the group, him coming back would make it worthwhile.

    Sadly, I've read the tour will consist of only Jones and Dolenz, which is a little like Paul and Ringo thinking they could go out as "the Beatles."
