UPDATE: And the “exciting news” is … a compilation of previously released material.

Before the solo careers of Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins, and long before “I Can’t Dance,” Genesis were a cultishly beloved British prog band. The band’s arguable masterpiece was 1974′s The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway, a double concept album that was Gabriel’s last with the group. It turns 40 in November, and the band, which has been dormant for years, could be doing something anniversary-related soon. Earlier this summer Gabriel, Collins, Mike Rutherford, Tony Banks, and Steve Hackett all appeared together for the first time in forever in a promotional photo for an upcoming BBC documentary on the group. Now the Genesis Facebook page has just unveiled a new logo for the band and promises “some exciting Genesis news here tomorrow.” But what could that be? A reissue? A Broadway show? Phil Collins recently announced a return to the stage for the first time in a few years, but if he was going to be doing old-school Genesis shows, he’d have to play drums, something he hasn’t done in years. Speculate away in the comments section, but we’ll find out soon enough.

  1. I don’t think they will.

  2. So, let me get this straight. This is an article telling us there will be another article (with actual information) tomorrow? Will we get a post-article, article on Saturday telling us that there was an article on the previous day?

  3. Arcade fire are covering them?
