THE MAVERICKS’ NEW ALBUM, IN TIME, AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE TODAY!

Nashville, TN (February 26, 2013) – Nearly twenty years after their first major label release, a plethora of industry awards and an indefinite divergence, THE MAVERICKS are back with a captivating new album, IN TIME. Their first project on The Valory Music Co., is available worldwide today (2/26) and showcases The Mavericks’ distinct sound throughout 14 eclectic tracks. Cuban-American frontman Raul Malo co-produced the album with Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Warren Zevon) while talented musicians Robert Reynolds, Paul Deakin, Jerry Dale McFadden and Eddie Perez sculpted the searing sonic vibes.

The hands-on band even stopped by Nashville’s United Record Pressing as the vinyl version was manufactured.

With their new album, time melts and the band that refused to conform while leaving a feel-good impression on their audiences, has once again found the way to make genre-defying soul music.

“Their mix of Latin horns and rhythms, crisp telecaster leads and the Roy Orbison-like voice of Raul Malo remains as engaging as ever,” according to the Associated Press.

While the four-star review from the Los Angeles Times says, “singer-songwriter Raul Malo and his Nashville-based compatriots draw freely, and joyously, from regional cultures spanning North and South America on a collection that will be hard to top as the year’s most scintillating pop music outing.

During a two-hour sold-out show last night (2/25), fans were given a taste of The Mavericks’ flair at New York’s famed Bowery Ballroom. On Friday (3/1), they are slated to perform “Come Unto Me” on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, which airs on NBC at 11:35P ET/10:35P CT.

Even before its official release, the project has already earned critical acclaim from some of the top music reviewers.

Country Weekly insists it is, “laden with hooky beats, blaring horns and the Orbisonesque voice of Raul.” The Oakland Press hails the album as, “…characteristically broad and bold, bringing the Mavericks back just ‘In Time’ and certainly well worth waiting for.” The Salt Lake Tribune believes IN TIME, “…resurrects the best ingredients of the ‘country’ band that began in Miami and embraced a style that not only honored Buck Owens and Patsy Cline but incorporated Tex-Mex as well as dynamic Cuban rhythms.”

IN TIME debuted in Australia last month (1/18) and was a Top 20 album. Australia’s Rhythms raves, “the band sounds better than The Traveling Wilburys’ wildest dreams…fronted by a Cuban Roy Orbison…I can’t think of another band that can take the listener back to the golden days of rock ‘n’ roll without deliberately trying to sound retrospective.”

In the UK earlier this month, the album peaked at #2 on iTunes UK Country store (just under Taylor Swift’s RED) and is the #1 best-selling Country album on Amazon UK.

Q Magazine in the UK gave the album a four-star review saying the guys are, “back after a nine-year siesta, Miami’s retro-nuevo-Tejano-mariachi-country-rock hyphanates sound refreshed, recharged and better than ever.” BBC Radio 2, the UK’s largest radio station, has already added “Back In Your Arms Again” to its playlist and Mexico City’s most listened to Pop station, Alfa Radio, has named The Mavericks as their “Artist of the Month.”
