Report: Pavement to Reunite Next Year
Music journalists, bloggers, and fans alike have been buzzing about it for years, but Stephen Malkmus solo albums just kept coming and our hopes were slowly fading… until today: Brooklyn Vegan reports that, “according to reliable sources,” Pavement will reunite next year at NYC’s Central Park SummerStage for multiple nights at the September event.
Speculation has already begun that these shows could be part of a larger tour and the SummerStage gigs have not been confirmed by the band, but we think BV can be trusted with this one.
Also, as Consequence of Sound points out, this reunion news falls perfectly in line with hints that guitarist Scott Kannberg made earlier this year about a possible Coachella unveiling. Not sure why Pavement may have chosen to reform now, but perhaps they were just waiting for Trent Reznor to retire or something.
