    Pretty exciting news, and hopefully they'll be here next year.

    In my book, they recorded the third best album of the era/genre, which sounds like faint praise, but is actually intended to be a huge compliment considering how great Loveless and Nowhere are.

    I really hope they play FYF or do a headlining date in LA, I'd cry so hard.

    Interview

    http://www.buzzbands.la/2014/01/29/exclusive-slowdive/


    Seems as though Coachella had a shot, but had to turn em down due to primavera?

    What are your plans for touring stateside? Have there been any festival offers you have accepted?

    NC: To start with we are concentrating on festivals in Europe and hopefully Asia. However, we always felt that the U.S. was our strongest market — whether that was true or not is open for argument! As a result we are really hopeful to play again in the U.S. We always enjoyed our time there and it would feel strange to reform and never go back. We had one lovely offer to play at a festival this year, but unfortunately it would have meant breaking our word to another promoter in Europe as the dates were problematic. So the answer is yes — we would love to, and we intend to work hard to make sure that we can come back. The more publicity we can get over there through interviews like this, the greater the chance is that we will be able to!

    Will this be their first show back?

    Slowdive have announced their reformation with confirmation of a show at Village Underground in London on 19th May; twenty years since the last Slowdive show in Toronto, Canada.

    The reformation came about following conversations between the band over the last two years as Neil Halstead explains:
    "Initially we started talking amongst ourselves last year about making a new record , we were all keen to bust out the pedals again but figured it might be a good idea to do a few gigs this year to get back into the swing of things."

    “I’m super excited,” admits Halstead, when we speak on the phone, 12 days before the news finally breaks. “We had our first rehearsal last week, which was fun. We were surprisingly good. Quite a few of the songs came back quickly.”

    “Trying to remember some of the guitar parts has been challenging!” reveals Goswell from her home in Exeter. “We went through about seven or eight songs in the first rehearsal and during some of them, we were like, ‘Wow!’”

    “In the first rehearsal, the first song we tried was ‘Slowdive’ – the first song on the first EP,” Halstead says. “It was one of the more straightforward ones, and we had a real goose bumps moment. We all just looked at each other. It was quite creepy. It was like, ‘We were good!’ There’s only three albums – well, and quite a lot of EPs – to choose from. We will definitely be playing some stuff from Pygmalion, as we never got to play that record live before. I think the live set will be a pretty fair reflection of our career and our hits – or not hits as they were.”

    Goswell also has some set list disclosures: “We’ve discussed which songs we’re going to play – all the old favourites and a couple of different ones. We’re looking at doing ‘Golden Hair’ (the Syd Barrett cover from their third EP, Holding Our Breath) and we’re definitely going to do ‘Avalyn’. We’re going for the epic.”

    I don't know how true this is but...

    However, the reason this fest gets such great bookings and others like Governor's Ball and the like do not is simple, but perhaps not obvious. These fests book these bands and then prohibit them from performing elsewhere in Barcelona (or sometimes even Spain altogether) for the rest of the year.
    What this means is that A) if you want to see bands of this calibre and you live in Spain, you HAVE to go to this fest. Also, it means that the shows that actually get to take place in BCN for the rest of the year often only draw smaller bands, as any big band would want to get on this bill, clearly.
    It's not the end of the world, but it explains why bands are less likely to commit to such a deal in markets like NYC, because they'd make a ton more money selling out their own shows, rather than be on a big bill like this.

    That's one of the first times I've read a band saying what songs they're trying to play on their reunion tour. Odd.

    Hoping for some US shows sooner than later.

    Is that also why no MBV at Coachella last year, but then played FYF? Will something similar happen in this case?

    Geez, with a possibly potent mix of Youtube and Wikipedia, I am sure our thirst for Slowdive knowledge could be completed. I did see Slowdive open up for Ride at the Anaconda in Isla Vista, California, back when I was attending UC Santa Barbara. One of the best shows I have ever seen, even better than Dream Boys at Pehrspace.
