Invisible Oranges reports that familycore pioneers Daughters will end their hiatus for at least one show on September 13 at The Met in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. It will be the band’s first performance in the almost five years since the 2010 release of their excellent self-titled full-length. Fellow family-core bands have surely felt a great absence in the intervening years, and will no doubt be ecstatic to welcome the prodigal group’s grindy, shouty, and sorta scary presence back into the fold. More info on the event is available at the venue’s website, and though tickets only went on sale last Friday, according to the band’s Facebook page, they have already sold out.
Of course this will also be the band’s first show since the unfortunate semi-demise of Hydra Head Records, the label that put out both 2006’s Hell Songs (TMT Review) and the self-titled release in 2010.
No word yet on if there will be any other shows or new recordings, but I’ve got my fingers crossed they’ll team up with their familycore cohorts around the world to bring back the dearly missed Family Values Tour. Or maybe they could just tour with Dads and call it the Father-Daughter Dance Tour or the Bring Your Daughter to Work Day Tour because those things would be, as my own father says from time to time, “way too adorable.” And I mean, whatever if it wouldn’t really make sense musically. It’s all about synergy, folks, and The Bring Your Daughter to Work Day Tour practically screams synergy.
