Fans of ear punishing sludge-rock had something to be excited about over the summer as Babes In Toyland announced that they would be reuniting. That news became all the more real on Monday when the band announced their first reunion show. The Fontanelle-era line up featuring Kat Bjelland, Maureen Herman, and Lori Barbero has been rehearsing but no announcement of any shows came until Monday’s news of their first show back together in 18 years at the Roxy in LA early 2015. February 12th to be exact.
Kat Bjelland says in a press release: “It was brought to my attention that not only do we have a lot of diehard fans from back in the day, but also a whole new generation of kids — my son Henry included — that were eager to see us live. I felt some kind of obligation for them to see us, too. But mainly, I just missed my girls and the feeling that comes from playing with them — visceral live therapy.”
Tickets for the show are on sale Friday November 21 at 10 AM PT.
