The Scoop: The emo forefathers in Mineral have decided to reform and play seven shows in honor of the band’s 20th anniversary, including a stop at The Fest in Florida this November. Into It. Over It. will be joining the band on the road.
The Spin: This will mark the band’s first shows in 17 years following their disbandment in 1998. Vocalist/guitarist Chris Simpson wrote a statement regarding the reunion:
Reconnecting with each other and this material for the first time in 17 years has been a real joy and pleasure. The shows will be the icing on the cake. We are grateful for the opportunity and looking forward to getting to play for all the people who have loved us all along as well as the many who have discovered us posthumously along the way.
