The Mavericks make plans for Massachusetts

, Staff

The Mavericks have revealed plans to return to the road next month to promote their first album in almost ten years, In Time. The country veterans, who reunited last year after a 8-year hiatus, will hit Massachusetts for a performance at Boston’s Royale on Friday, April 12. Tickets for the show will go on sale Friday at noon through Ticketmaster for $28.

In Time, the band’s seventh studio album and first since their 2003 self-titled release, will hit stores on February 26. Recorded in Nashville, the album was produced by lead singer Raul Malo and Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Warren Zevon). It features 14 tracks, five of which were featured on the band’s 2012 digital EP Suited Up and Ready. The video for lead single “Born To Be Blue” is streaming below.

“I would say that it was like a perfect storm scenario,” said Malo of the band’s reunion in a recent interview with Billboard. “It originally started with the idea of doing a reunion tour of sorts — going out to play festivals in the summer. That seemed like fun in and of itself, but for some reason, it wasn’t enough. We thought if we’re going to bring back the band, it would be nice to have a new album.”

The Mavericks are comprised of original members Malo, Robert Reynolds (bass) and Paul Deakin (drums), along with guitarist Eddie Perez and keyboardist Jerry Dale McFadden.
