Darius Rucker might have created a successful second life as a country music star away from the glare of ’90s nostalgia and VH1 rewinds, but that doesn’t mean he’s fully done with Hootie and the Blowfish. His baritone spent the better part of a decade being blasted out of plenty of Discmans, making millions of fans happy. Can you really blame him if he wants to take another stab at the songs on Cracked Rear View?

Rucker and the rest of the outfit announced yesterday that they’ll be embarking on their first US tour in more than a decade, and by the looks of the summer schedule it seems they’re making up for lost time. Hootie and the Blowfish will hit 44 cities over the course of three months, starting in Virginia Beach at the Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater on May 30. The group will play a healthy mix of large amphitheatres and state fairs, dipping into Canada for just a single date in Toronto. The lengthy trek wraps up on September 13 in Columbia, SC at the Colonial Life Arena. Barenaked Ladies will join them as tour support for tour’s entirety.

Though it will coincide with the 25th anniversary of View, the band’s decision to tour isn’t a pure nostalgia play. Hootie and the Blowfish are gearing up to release their first album in 15 years after signing a deal with Universal Music Group Nashville. The as-yet-unnamed album will drop on July 5, a quarter-century to the day from their breakout debut.
