Pavement Tease “Great News Coming Soon”
Pavement’s Wowee Zowee came out 20 years ago today, but while we’re busy looking back, the band has begun teasing some “great news coming soon.” On a new Facebook page (which Matador Records tells us is legit) Spiral Stairs writes:
hi pavement fans… spiral here. we’ve taken back our page after all these years… thanks to the fine folks at matador. and thanks to you for supporting us! there’s some great news coming soon… in the meantime, we will be randomly posting stuff from the archive.
hope you enjoy!
Bob Nastanovich adds, “Happy to be an admin/reporter on this page. West is hanging in Nashville with David. Is that newsworthy? Bob in Iowa.” He also promises a contest to win “some Pavement relics from the ’90s and 2010.”
So does this activity mean another reunion tour is on the horizon?
A page admin (likely Nastanovich based on the time stamps) offers, “As I understand it, live perfs are ruled out for ’15 but not ’16, beyond. Deep cuts will feature.”
For now frontman Stephen Malkmus is remaining coy:

Remember Nastanovich said in February that Malkmus had recently rejected his bandmates’ pitch for another reunion tour. So maybe don’t get your hopes up, but this recent social media activity is a good sign.
