No you didn’t just misread the title. Indie Godfathers (and Mothers) Pulp have announced they are reuniting next summer to play shows. I guess we have something to look forward to after the Pavement reunion, right? The lineup which includes Jarvis Cocker, Nick Banks, Candida Doyle, Steve Mackey, Russell Senior, and Mark Webber will kick off the tour on May 27th at the Primavera Sound Festival where they will be headlining. Only one other date has been revealed right now, which is at London’s Wireless Fest on July 3rd. More tour dates will be added of course, so keep checking back.
This will be the first time the original band has played together since August 24th, 1996. The last Pulp show took place in December 2002.
