The Breeders Reform, Toast 'Last Splash'

Live shows confirmed
Last Splash

The Breeders are set to reform for a number of shows toasting the 20th anniversary of their album 'Last Splash'.

It all fell into place with remarkable ease. Kim Deal, Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs, and Jim Macpherson formed The Breeders in 1992, playing their first show together in a snooker hall behind Warrington Rugby Club in the north of England.

Within days they were supporting Nirvana, within weeks they had performed at Glastonbury and kicked off work on their debut album. Released in 1993, 'Last Splash' remains a stunning listen - immediately accessible, there is an adventurous edge to the material which still startles.

Recently hooking up, the four members of The Breeders decided to get back into rehearsals. Kicking off in November, the group made plans to celebrate the 20th anniversary of 'Last Splash' with a series of concerts around the globe. Set to play ATP (curated by Deerhunter) in June, the one off festival show will be followed by more headline dates.

Alongside this, 4AD are set to release a deluxe, 20th anniversary edition of 'Last Splash' in April.

Here's 'Cannonball'.
