The New Rising Sons, the short-lived alt-rock project for former Texas Is the Reason frontman Garret Klahn, have announced plans to reunite.
The band explains on their MySpace page:
"When we were all finally able to get back in the same room (only recently) without all the past hang-ups things kind of naturally fell into place again. We realized what brought us together in the first place and what continues to still tie us together. In the age of bands reuniting for a variety of reasons, we find we’re just picking up where we left off. We never had enough popularity for this to be our big comeback. It’s just a return to where we left the music eight years ago. With that said, for those of you who have been interested and for those of you who are new to what we do, there will be new material written and recorded."
The band has announced details on the first show back as well, which will take place November 25th at Arlene’s Grocery in New York City. Oddly enough, when Texas Is The Reason played a pair of reunion shows themselves in late 2006, they took place on November 25th and 26th.
The New Rising Sons released just two EPs in their time together, both on Virgin: 1998’s self-titled and 2000’s Thieves & Angels.
Klahn also currently plays in Solea alongside current and former members of Samiam and Sense Field, respectively.
