The Dismemberment Plan have been contrapuntally dormant since they decided to call being one of the most exciting live bands on the planet a day in 2003. However, their recent announcement that they are reuniting for some more shows (US only for now, sadly) has already geared up fans to recall those exciting memories and throw hopes of a new album into the less than optimistic ether.
Bassist Eric Axelson has commented: ‘We’re not planning a new record. But we’re doing these shows and taking it day to day after that.’
Keep your ears close to the ground then. Until further notice, you’ll be pleased to learn that their 1999 album Emergency and I is due for a double LP release on January 11th.
