They were one of the '90s most beloved rock bands, and they are coming back for more. Darius Rucker recently told Billboard that Hootie & the Blowfish will record new music.
"There's one more Hootie record and tour that we're going to do," said Rucker, who has spent the last four years as a country star. "I don't know when, because country music is my day job -- it's what I want to do."
The band has never really broken up, as they still perform together with some regularity (they are scheduled for two shows in August).
Cracked Rear View, Hootie & the Blowfish's first studio album debuted in 1994. It was a massive commercial success, topping the Billboard chart and selling over 10 million copies to date. It also included three top 10 singles: "Hold My Hand," "Let Her Cry" and "Only Want To Be With You."
All told, Hootie put out five studio albums. The most recent, 2005's Looking for Lucky, peaked at number 47 on the Billboard chart. Rucker put the band's new music on hold to pursue a career in country music and released his first solo effort (which was actually R&B), Back to Then, in 2002. The singer's first true country disc was Learn to Live, which came out in 2008 and earned him his first chart-topping single, "Don't Think I Don't Think About It."
Rucker also told Billboard that the band would had to have changed its sound if it was debuting in 2012. For more, head over to Billboard.

i go blind hootie and the blowfish
lyrics Every time I look at you, I go blind. Every time I look at you, I go blind. In the mornin I get up, and I try to Feel alive, but I cant. Every time I look at you, I go blind. I dont know what it is. Something in me just wont give me a chance. I think its that I feel more confused By the deal love has shown me. Little child, did you know that theres a light, And its gonna shine right through your eyes. What do you think that life is like? Every time I look at you, I go blind. I go blind Well some where over there theres a purpose, Theres a care for free In me theres no body, no one plan, No one stand to be free. I think its that because I have seen all the fuss And its no big deal. no big deal. Hold me, hold me cause I want to get higher and higher, Higher than life
