Verve to Reunite!

I'm a lucky man. Today, it has been annouced that UK rockers The Verve, fronted by leadman Richard Ashcroft, are getting back together. If you don't know them at all, or only know them from their mega-smash Bittersweet Symphony, you should absolutely listen to the rest of their catalog. And fortuntely for us, this is a REAL reunion of all of the original members. Take that Billy Corgan. I hope they're coming to the States.

The Verve Reunite For Tour

Richard Ashcroft and co write new songs. The Verve are set to reunite for a winter tour. The original band of Richard Ashcroft, Nick McCabe,Simon Jones and Pete Sailsbury have got together for the first time in almost a decade. In a statement, the band have announced they were: "Getting back together for the joy of the music." It is believed they will take a summer break and then return to the studio to complete their next album. The band broke up in 1999, with the tumultuous relationship between Ashcroft and McCabe being well documented with the two exiting the band repeatedly since they began in 1993. The band are set to play:

Glasgow Academy (November 2,3)
Blackpool Empress Ballroom (5,6)
London Roundhouse (8,9)

Tickets are set to go on sale on July 6.
