Unexpected news has just surfaced that one of the 90’s most exciting live acts, the post-punk and soul rock outlet The Make-Up, have been confirmed for their first live performance in over ten years. In the year 2000, the Washington D.C.-based “Gospel Yeh-Yeh” band (their self-invented genre to describe themselves) split after four studio albums and a handful of separate releases. Now, front man Ian Svenonius says that the band will in fact reunite for at least one show. The performance will take place in May at London’s All Tomorrow’s Parties festival. If you’re not planning to take the trip abroad just to see their appearance, Svenonius, who is preparing for the near release of a third album from his current band Chain and the Gang, says not to fear and that they will probably also add a show in the Washington D.C. area. If you’d like to read more of the words Svenonius shared on behalf of the band’s rejoining, head over to The Washington Post to read their interview with him.
