Incidentally, the The Format's debut album, Interventions + Lullabies, was released exactly ten years ago today, on Oct. 21, 2003. Also, after this month, both Ruess and Means have schedules free of any outside performance obligations, clearing room for future Format activity, should that be the nature of today's announcement. We will keep you posted as news develops.
Do you think the announcement will be some sort of re-release, anniversary tour, or something different entirely? Would you like to see a Format reunion? Let us know in the comments!
