The Waterboys Release OUT OF ALL THIS BLUE, US Tour Starts This Month

The Waterboys Release OUT OF ALL THIS BLUE, US Tour Starts This Month

Following the release earlier this year of their critically acclaimed album Where The Action Is, The Waterboys release the Out Of All This Blue EP via Cooking Vinyl.

Written for a friend who's been to a dark place, "Out Of All This Blue" is a compassionate song of reassurance; a Waterboys classic in the making. The EP also features a 2015 demo of "Out Of All This Blue" and two live tracks, "London Mick"and "The Whole Of The Moon" (featuring Blaine Harrison from Mystery Jets), recorded on the Chris Evans Virgin Radio Breakfast Show and capturing the visceral rock 'n' roll edge of the band.

Where The Action Is, a 10-song genre-defying album is a testament to The Waterboys' frontman and founder Mike Scott's enduring talents. One of the finest British songwriters of the past four decades, his songs have been covered and/or recorded by artists including Prince, who crafted two different arrangements of Scott's classic "The Whole Of The Moon", Rod Stewart, Tom Jones, Steve Earle, and Ellie Goulding, who had a top three hit in 2013 with "How Long Will I Love You."

The Waterboys are Brother Paul (keys), Ralph (drums), Aongus (bass), Jess and Zeenie (vocals), Steve Wickham (electric fiddle and guitar) and Mike Scott (vocals, guitar and piano).

In support of the new album, The Waterboys will tour North America for the first time since 2015, hitting cities such as Boston, New York, Washington D.C., Detroit, Seattle, Minneapolis, Los Angeles and more. The tour begins September 17 at the Count Basie Theater in Red Bank, NJ. For more information visit The Waterboys website.
