Hootie And The Blowfish’s Hiatus Is Over

Written by:

Hootie and the Blowfish announced today that their ten-year hiatus has ended and the band will be touring and releasing new music in 2019.

The band’s original lineup of Mark Bryan, Dean Felber, Darius Rucker and Jim “Soni” Sonefeld will be returning to full-time touring in the new year and have already announced 44 U.S. dates, which will begin at the end of May in Virginia Beach.

The South Carolina outfit’s upcoming sixth album will be their first since 2005’s Looking For Lucky.

It’s been twenty-five years since their debut album Cracked Rear View hit shelves and in that timespan, it’s gone on to become the fifth best-selling studio album of all time.

Over the course of their career, the band has sold almost 30 million albums.

Bryan was a recent guest on Stereo Embers: The Podcast.
