Manchester, England’s six-piece James, who’ve been on hiatus since 2001, have announced they’ve reunited via a band website post. “James are back. Still fresh as a daisy…with a back catalogue to die for and a bunch of new songs,” the post read. On his website, frontman Tim Booth further confirmed the reunion, stating he’ll “be rejoining James in early 2007 for a series of live shows.”
Having risen to fame in England’s vibrant post-punk scene in the late ’80s and early ’90s, James capped a career replete with numerous U.K. chart-toppers and a U.S. breakthrough single, “Laid,” when Booth left the group to focus on other projects. James will hit the road for a brief tour of England in April.
