Reunions and Separations...

It has been confirmed that No Doubt will reunite in 2009 and hit the studio as well as the road next summer. The band is already booked to headline this years Bamboozle festival in New Jersey in May.

God only knows how many times this has been said but Blur are getting back together. This time Damon Albarn makes it legit by telling the BBC "Blur are certainly going to rehearse and see if we're into it." They will enter the studio after the holidays and work together for the first time since 2003's Think Tank. Lets hope they make something grand.

The original bar band The Faces featuring Ron Wood and Rod Stewart have been in a rehearsal studio for about a week now and are ready and willing to hit the road next year. This will be the first time The Faces have played together in almost four decades.

As great as all these reunions and tours may seem, sad news to report, my favorite unsigned band from New York City has split. The Fire Flies whose amazing two records Baobabs in the Basement and Two New Sciences, as well as brilliant live shows will be a memory. The members of the band are currently hard at work on other projects. I wish them all the best of luck in their future endevours.
