Lush announce first American reunion show... for September 2016

Lush are reuniting for their first American show of 2016 in New York. They’ve kindly planned it for September 14, TEN MONTHS FROM NOW, in case you’d like to structure your life around it. Tickets go on sale to the general public today, Friday, November 13, at 12 PM EST.

In addition to the NY show, Lush will be playing a sold-out show at London’s Roundhouse on May 6, 2016, as well as another Roundhouse show the next night. The current lineup includes Emma Anderson (vocals/guitar), Miki Berenyi (vocals/guitar), and Phil King (bass), plus drummer Justin Welch (formerly of Elastica) for the live dates.

To feed your frenzied shoegaze nostalgia, 4AD are reissuing a vinyl version of the band’s “best of” album, Ciao! on January 22. Also in the works is the Chorus five-disc box set, which includes Gala (1990), Spooky (1992), Split (1994), Lovelife (1996), and the Canadian version of the B-sides collection Topolino (1996). It’s a box set, so you know it’s chock full of all kinds of other assorted rarities, such as B-sides, radio sessions, remixes, and demos, some of which were previously unreleased. Chris Bigg did the artwork; you might know him as the guy who, along with design chief Vaughan Oliver, created many of the iconic 4AD album covers from the 90s.
