The Promise Ring Reunite

Other than a one-off 2005 show, emo originators the Promise Ring haven’t played any shows since breaking up in 2002. That changes next year, when the band gets together to play a pair of reunion shows: 2/24 and Milwaukee’s Turner Hall and 2/25 at Chicago’s Metro. As Punknews reports, there may be more shows on the way, and the band also plans to release a collection of rarities next summer on Dangerbird. It’ll include outtakes and demos from the sessions that produced Wood/Water, the band’s largely unloved final album. So maybe they’re picking up where they left off?
