Grammy-winning group, THE MAVERICKS, move the release of In Time, their first studio album in ten years, to February 26, 2013.
Currently sailing the high seas on the Sandy Beaches Cruise the band will return to Nashville for a performance on The Grand Ole Opry on January 19th before heading across the pond for a sold-out show at the Celtic Connection in Glasgow, Scotland on January 22nd.
With their new album, time melts once again and the band that defied definitions, blurred genres and made everybody feel good, is back. Whether it’s the Buck Owens-influenced “Dance In The Moonlight,” the panoramic Orbison-esque “Born To Be Blue,” the horn punctuated retro noir “Back In Your Arms Again” or Tejano-esque “All Over Again,” the Mavericks have once again found the way to make soul music and sole music.
For original members Raul Malo, the lead singer with the rich supple voice that’s second to only Roy Orbison in its ability to convey lonesome, desire and vivre; drummer Paul Deakin and multi-instrumentalist Robert Reynolds; as well as longtime collaborator keyboardist Jerry Dale McFadden and seasoned guitarist Eddie Perez, life has made them richer in terms of experience, playing acumen and a sense of their own musicality. It has also deepened the connection between them in a way that heightens the singular chemistry that made the Grammy-winning band one of the most exciting live propositions in any musical genre.
The tour will kick off in March with tour dates being announced next week.
