Piebald reissues, reunion show forthcoming


Great news for fans of Merrimack Valley post-hardcore. PIEBALD's first three albums - that'd be 1997's When Life Hands You Lemons, 1999's If It Weren't for Venetian Blinds, It'd Be Curtains for Us All (the best one), and 2002's We Are the Only Friends that We Have - are getting reissued courtesy of Rise Records, home of . . . oh. Hm. Still, though: Piebald.

But what if you already have all these albums backed up on an external hard drive somewhere? Well, there is still some more good news for you, then: they're also getting the band back together. Sort of. You'll have to go to New Jersey to see them as of now, but there could be a chance for more. Below, the statement from the band:

Hello friends of Piebald,

     word on the street is that we are reuniting...and, while that is not quite true, we are getting together to play a show (or maybe 2) this year to celebrate the rerelease of our out-of-print catalog.  "Piebald: First Ten Years" is going to be a 3 volume set of releases with 2 discs apiece that will be released on Rise Records.  It will contain our first three albums, all our ep's, bsides and live gems.  Volume I will be released in mid April, Volume II in mid May, and volume III in mid June.  We will be playing "we are the only friends we have" from start to finish at the Bamboozle fest on may 2nd.  We hope that you can come celebrate with us!!
