After Nike used their track Chicken on an advert, The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster reformed for a few gigs, playing in Brighton on tuesday. Today they announced that their reformation was permanent. Here’s what they had to say on Facebook:
“AFTER STANDING ON STAGE TOGETHER AGAIN, SELLING OUT THIS TOUR AND RECEIVING SUCH AN INCREDIBLE RESPONSE FROM YOU ALL, IT’S BECOME CLEAR WE’RE NOW HITTING OUR STRIDE! THE EIGHTIES MATCHBOX B-LINE DISASTER HAS NOW TAKEN ON A LIFE OF ITS OWN AND MUSICALLY WE HAVE UNFINISHED BUSINESS TOGETHER. SO WE’RE GOING TO RECORD SOME NEW SONGS TO SET ALIGHT TO THE NEXT UK SHOW AT SHEPHERD’S BUSH EMPIRE ON FRIDAY 12TH APRIL. TICKETS ON SALE AT 9AM TOMORROW.
THE STORY CONTINUES!!!! MORE NEWS SOON.”
It’s good to have them back.
