“More announcements to follow.”

On Friday British trio Doves, who went on an “indefinite pause” in 2010, posted a cryptic image to their social media channels that showed some music gear cases with the band’s logo on them coming out of a storage container. Today’s date (December 3, 2018) was written on the image. It was assumed that the band would at least be announcing a reunion tour or even a new album. Well, that haven’t gone quite that far, but today they have announced a reunion show. On March 29, 2019 they will be performing at London’s famed Royal Albert Hall. It will be a charity show to benefit Teenage Cancer Trust. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 9 a.m. UK time. A social media post from the band promises “more announcements to follow.” Hopefully that still means more tour dates and a new album.

Here’s the full text of Doves’ Facebook post: “The waiting is over! In 2010 Doves announced an indefinite pause. Nothing lasts forever. Doves will break their hiatus to perform for the Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall, London on Friday 29 March 2019. Tickets go on sale Friday 9am. More announcements to follow.”

Doves have released four albums: 2000’s Lost Souls, 2002’s The Last Broadcast, 2005’s Some Cities, and 2009’s Kingdom of Rust. Since their hiatus, frontman Jimi Goodwin released a solo album, Odludek, in 2014. That same year, Doves’ other two members, brothers Jez and Andy Williams, formed the new band Black Rivers (they released their debut album in 2015). Doves were interviewed in our very first print issue, back in 2001, and we have interviewed them for each of their four albums, so the band has a special place in our hearts.
