Excited about Slowdive yet? Maybe you’re not going to Primavera Sound. Or maybe the idea of another band riding on the coattails of their previous glories doesn’t really appeal to you. (Or maybe you have a heart of stone.) Regardless, the newly reformed band has given us another reason to get giddy. (It’s called fangirling, and we’re not ashamed to admit that’s what is happening here.) On May 19, the band will play their first gig in almost 20 years at the Village Underground in London. Still not into it? The band says that additional dates will be announced soon.

But wait, there’s more. In an exclusive interview with The Quietus, Neil Halstead hinted at the possibility of new material.

“I’m super excited,” he says. “We had our first rehearsal last week, which was fun. We were surprisingly good. Quite a few of the songs came back quickly. The initial impetus was the idea of doing some new music. It seemed easier to do that because it’s not so public. But then we thought it would be good if we could raise a bit of money to make the record, and doing a couple of gigs would enable us to do that. And that’s the way it shaped up – while we’re rehearsing we can see if we’ve got another record in us.”
