The Mavericks New Album ‘Mono’ Available Now

February 17, 2015

The Mavericks release their new album “MONO”, today February 17th on The Valory Music Co.

Buy “MONO” on Amazon and iTunes

Raul Malo, whose signature tenor fronts The Mavericks, penned each of the standard 11 tracks on “MONO” in addition to teaming up with Niko Bolas once again for producing duties. With a palpable connection, founding members Paul Deakin (Drums, Percussion and Marimba), Eddie Perez (Electric and Acoustic Guitars) and Jerry Dale McFadden (Piano, Organ, Celeste) add magic to each song. The project features The Fantastic Four, longtime backing musicians: Michael Guerra (Accordion and Percussion), Max Abrams (Saxophones), Paul Armstrong (Trumpets) and Jay Weaver (Upright Bass and Tuba), who bring even more gusto to The Mavericks’ already indescribable musical trance.

“With MONO we started with less purpose and more passion, hoping to do what music is supposed to do, evoke a vibe that naturally takes each listener somewhere different,” said Malo. “That’s what happened to each of us as we went in the studio and listened to old vinyl before recording. There was just a beauty to the sound that inspired how we developed these songs and even why we chose to record in mono. One of the things we found interesting as we listened to playback in ‘mono’ – usually at the end of each day – was how ‘finished’ the songs sounded. In turn the album has but a few overdubs and that works in our favor because each part played counts for a lot. Our hope is to present this album almost exactly as it was recorded.”

The new album and tour dates follow The Mavericks triumphant return in 2013 with the critically acclaimed “In Time”, the Twenty-Five Live Tour and major TV appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, CBS This Morning Saturday and a PBS Special. The Mono Mundo tour will see stops across the US, UK, France, Germany and the Netherlands with more dates including Canadian shows to be announced in the coming weeks.
