Consequence of Sound just announced that indie rock band Grandaddy has reunited. They've been broken up for six years, but will play a number of shows this year, beginning with a headlining spot at the UK's End of the Road Festival in September.
According to CoS:
Comprised of Jason Lytle, Jim Fairchild, Kevin Garcia, Aaron Burth,
and Tim Dryden, the band put out four studio albums during its 15-year
existence between 1992 and 2006. Their sophomore album, 2000′s The
Sophtware Slump, is considered their crowning achievement, appearing in
many “Best of Decade” lists and even earning them an invitation to open
for Elliot Smith in late 2000. Grandaddy disbanded in 2006, citing a lack of profitability and
general fatigue…Last year,
Grandaddy reissued their first three studio albums.
