Shoegazing Legends Lush Might Be Reforming

Band Launches New Website and Facebook Page

We can't tell you that shoegazing legends Lush are definitely reforming, but they're sure up to something and signs point to a reunion. The band have launched a brand new website (www.lushofficial.com) and a new Facebook page that includes up to date contact info for publicists, booking agents, and a manager. Then yesterday guitarist Emma Anderson posted to Twitter: "7 days." Does that mean that next Monday there will be some kind of announcement?

Lush were one of the originators and main icons of the shoegazing genre, along with Slowdive, Ride, My Bloody Valentine, Swervedriver, and others. Oh, and all those bands have reformed in recent years. Lush released three albums in the '90s (Spooky, Split, and Lovelife), but split up after the 1996 suicide of drummer Chris Acland. The new Facebook page lists Lush's three surviving members (Anderson, Miki Berenyi, and Philip King) as current members of the band.

While we wait for official word on Lush's reunion, you can read our two recent interviews with Berenyi and Anderson on Split and Lovelife. Also read our 2007 interview with Berenyi, which at the time was her first interview in a decade, since Lush's breakup. Below is Anderson's tweet and some Lush videos.
