Renowned in the late 90’s and the early 00’s for their exuberant live shows, The Dismemberment Plan called it quits in 2003.
Now the group has announced plans to reunite, briefly, to celebrate the re-release of their seminal Emergency & I. The album is being put out on Barsuk as a double LP.
The re-release will feature four bonus tracks: “The Dismemberment Plan Gets Rich,” “Just Like You,” “Since You Died,” and “The First Anniversary of Your Last Phone Call.”
The band’s brief East Coast tour looks like this:
01-21 Washington, DC – Black Cat
01-22 Washington, DC – 9:30 Club
01-27 Philadelphia, PA – Starlight Ballroom
01-28 Boston, MA – Paradise
01-29 New York, NY – Webster Hall
So does this mean that we can expect anything new to come from this brief tour? The answer is a solid “maybe.” Bassist Eric Axelson told the Washington Post that “we’re not planning a new record. But we’re doing these shows and taking it day to day after that.”
