“People should expect the unexpected from The Waterboys,” says Mike Scott. It’s a mission statement which has inspired three decades of compelling musical shape-shifting, and one which yields thrilling results on The Waterboys’ latest album, Modern Blues. Applauded with a 4-star review by Rolling Stone, Modern Blues is released today (through Kobalt).
A freewheeling rock and roll record with a southern soul edge, Modern Blues was recorded in Nashville by a line-up including
Muscle Shoals legend David Hood on bass, Austin guitar-slinger Zach Ernst and Memphis keyboard wizard Brother Paul, all
of whom play in the 2015 touring line-up of the band. They join Mike Scott, Irish electric fiddle great Steve Wickham and ace
drummer Ralph Salmins at a time when the relevance and popular reach of The Waterboys has never been greater.
