Spitalfield announced their heartbreaking end as a band back in 2007, and have only played a very small handful of reunion shows since, a couple of which weren’t even publicly announced. Join me now in my screaming and crying, because the Chicago band just announced a tenth anniversary reunion tour for their beloved album Remember Right Now.
In 2003, when our guitarist, Dan Lowder, suggested the name Remember Right Now for the record we were making – it just made sense…Everything in my life up until that point seemed like it was building towards something. Getting me closer & closer to something that would take me very far away. I’ll never forget that feeling. Growing up, playing in a band is all I ever really wanted to do. I am truly grateful that I was able to make that shift – to take that leap into the world of recording & touring. I’m very focused on the solo material I’ve been working on, and am very excited to keep pushing forward with it. That said, this tour couldn’t have come at a better time, as I can’t help but smile & get amped up thinking about getting in the van, hanging out, & playing some old familiar songs with some of my oldest friends. If people show up to have some fun with us, that will just be a bonus.
The band, which will feature the album’s original lineup on the tour, seems to be just as amped up as we are. Shane Henderson + the Future Effect and Jon Walker (ex-Panic! at the Disco) have been announced as openers. Along with the written announcement, Absolutepunk.net posted a video from Spitalfield themselves.
