“Nobody’s journey is perfect” but Hootie & the Blowfish are back to show that they’re still here!

Yes, that’s right — in well over a decade, the bluegrass and twang group will be releasing new music. It’s been 15 years since Darius Rucker, Mark Bryan, Jim Sonefeld, and Dean Felber last released an album and a whopping 25 since the band’s debut, Cracked Rear View. The group announced their upcoming titled Imperfect Circle whilst on their 44-date Group Therapy reunion tour.

According to Billboard, the album will be released via Universal’s Capitol Nashville imprint. The album is due out on November 1, but you can get early access to the first track off the record, “Rollin,” on their official website.

The band confirmed the news via its official Twitter account. Watch them speak of their inspiration behind Imperfect Circle below.
