Voxtrot Announce Reunion Tour
The Austin-based blog-rockers Voxtrot broke up in 2010, but they’re roaring back to life this year. In addition to prepping two archival releases, the band will head out on tour this fall.
A statement from the band’s singer Ramesh Srivastava:
About a year ago, I had a dream where we were onstage and it was really positive. And there was such a strong and palpable feeling of love in my heart that when I woke up, it was still with me. I switched on my phone and started looking at things tagged with Voxtrot on social media — like teenagers now covering our songs, people with Voxtrot tattoos — and just went down this internet rabbit hole that made me realize how much love there still is for the band. I was seeing it from this really wonderful viewpoint, and that morning — for the first time since the band broke up — it seemed very, very obvious that we should do this.
“This” includes two album-length releases. Early Music combines the band’s EPs Raised By Wolves (2005) and Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives (2006); it’s out today digitally and will see physical release in September. The self-explanatory Cut From The Stone: Rarities & B-Sides collects other obscure Voxtrot oldies and will be online in July, also with physical release in September. There’s also a new video for their Smiths-y single “The Start Of Something” that, appropriately enough, includes footage from Voxtrot’s first US tour in 2005, shot by Miguel Hinojosa and edited by Royal Pine Productions.
