“More than two decades into a career that’s always avoided the predictable path, the Mavericks — whose Tex-Mex twang, Cuban-influenced country and retro rock made them unlikely stars in the mid-Nineties and critical darlings during later years — turn another corner with the new album Brand New Day.” – Rolling Stone Country
Celebrated, Grammy Award-winning band The Mavericks will perform at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN on Friday, April 7th at 7:00 p.m. Stepping out on their own, their new album Brand New Day (Mono Mundo Recordings/Thirty Tigers) is set for release on March 31st and marks the group’s first-ever studio album on their own label. Rolling Stone Country explored the band’s newfound, creative freedom and shared the title track, HERE.
The 10-song collection opens with the Tejano/bluegrass-inspired “Rolling Along”, which sets a tone before the wall-of-sound power of the title track thrusts the listener deep into the musical journey. From the ‘60’s flavored and election-campaign inspired “Easy As It Seems” featured in the Los Angeles Times (HERE), to the accordion-fueled shuffle of “I Will Be Yours” to the heart-melting beauty of “Goodnight Waltz”, Brand New Day finds the eclectic unit as inspired, passionate and commanding as ever.
The Mavericks formed in Miami, FL in the late 1980’s and eventually moved to Nashville where they launched an incredible career amassing a loyal and dedicated fan base, chart-topping hits and sold-out tours. Considered to be one of the great and most original American bands, The Mavericks created a one-of-a-kind sound that seamlessly blended elements of rock, Latino, folk, blues, country and more. Following a nine-year hiatus, they reformed in 2012, released two more highly-acclaimed studio albums and toured relentlessly bringing their exhilarating live shows to longtime fans and new generations worldwide. They continue to solidify themselves as a seminal musical force, both live and in the studio.
Brand New Day was co-produced by Raul Malo and Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Warren Zevon, Melissa Etheridge). The group is led by vocalist Raul Malo and includes the driving swing of drummer Paul Deakin, the masterful playing of guitarist Eddie Perez and eccentric style of keyboardist Jerry Dale McFadden.
