The Spin Doctors, one of the little alt-rock bands to break out big in the early '90s, are back with a new album and tour.
If the River Was Whiskey, set for release April 30, is described in a press release as "the blues album the band was always meant to make." Lead singer Chris Barron elaborates, calling the collection of 10 original tunes a "ramshackle, broken carriage running down a cobblestone hill, with pots and pans, and a screaming baby."
Those curious about what that might sound like, exactly, can check out this five-song sampler exclusively on USA TODAY.
They can also catch the band on tour starting May 2, when the Spin Doctors will perform in Virginia Beach. Additional concerts are scheduled in New York (May 7), Annapolis, Md. (May 8), Philadelphia (May 9) and at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Conn. (May 10), with more dates to be announced soon.
