The Breeders are gearing up for a big 2013 as the Last Splash-era lineup — Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs, and Jim Macpherson — reunites to tour that album, and to get fans into an appropriately festive mood, the band posted iPhone-filmed video last night of a rehearsal in Kim Deal’s basement of the song “New Year.”
So far, 4AD has announced the release in April of a deluxe anniversary reissue of that album, dubbed LSXX, followed by a full performance of the record at the Deerhunter-curated All Tomorrow’s Parties festival at Camber Sands, U.K., in June. More dates in Europe and the U.S. are expected to follow, although none have yet been revealed.
Kim Deal’s been busy lately, though, and also has just launched a new solo 7-inch single series. The first, limited to just 1,000 copies, features the songs “Walking With a Killer” and “Dirty Hessians,” and can be ordered at kimdealmusic.com.
