NEW ALBUM TO BE RELEASED LATER THIS YEAR ON BMG RECORDS
The Waterboys are delighted to have signed to BMG Records, joining a rich and eclectic roster, and will release a brand-new studio album later in the year. Further details to be announced soon.
It was announced today that The Waterboys will tour the UK in support of their new album this autumn and will also return to Ireland to play 3Arena Dublin on 26th October 2017. Tickets for this date go on sale this Friday 31st March at 10am from Ticketmaster.
Few bands have changed as much as The Waterboys. Formed in 1983, on their first three albums Mike Scott sculpted a layered post-punk sound, culminating in 1985’s sky-scraping This is the Sea. Since then the music has never ceased to evolve, from the influential mix of Celtic, gospel, country and rock on the classic Fisherman’s Blues, to the fired-up poetic passion of 2011's An Appointment with Mr Yeats and 2015's acclaimed return to prominence, the rootsy, funky Modern Blues. Their sound bridges the toughness of British/Irish rock and the soulful, funky swagger of the American south.
The relevance and popular reach of The Waterboys has never been greater. Their songs have recently been performed by artists as varied as Ellie Goulding, who scored a top 3 UK hit with “How Long Will I Love You” in 2013; Prince, who sang "The Whole Of The Moon" onstage last year; mainstream poppers Boyzone who recorded "The Whole Of The Moon" in 2014, US indie rockers The War On Drugs, who've played "A Pagan Place" as a staple of their live set for several years; and cool new American band Dawes who have rearranged "Fisherman's Blues" to astonishing effect in their 2015 shows. Meanwhile "How Long Will I Love You", "Fisherman's Blues" and "You In The Sky" were featured in the recent hit movies About Time, Dom Hemingway and What We Did On Our Holiday
