Hootie & The Blowfish has spent their summer on a reunion tour, and now they’re ready to release some new music. The band just announced that their first new album in 15 years, “Imperfect Circle,” will drop November 1st.
As for how hey came up with the name,Darius Rucker says it was inspired by the REM song “Perfect Circle,” which they consider “one of the best.”
“I said, ‘Perfect Circle,’ and then we thought ‘Imperfect Circle’ was a better name,” he says, “because just looking at us, our career, it’s the 25th anniversary of ‘Cracked Rear View,’but we’ve been playing together 30-something years and for us to be here, to be doing this tour and to be making a record, it just seems like ‘Imperfect Circle’ was perfect.”
Hootie & The Blowfish are currently still on their “Group Therapy Tour,” which will hit Canandaigua, New York tonight, and New York’s Madison Square Garden Saturday and Sunday.
