Recently reunited Minneapolis female act Babes in Toyland have announced their first show with the Fontanelle lineup in 18 years, which will take place on February 12th, 2015 at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, California, and tickets go on sale this Friday (November 21st) at 10AM PST. Lead vocalist and guitarist Kat Bjelland had this to say about the band’s decision to reunite:
“It was brought to my attention that not only do we have a lot of diehard fans from back in the day, but also a whole new generation of kids–my son Henry included– that were eager to see us live. I felt some kind of obligation for them to see us, too. But mainly, I just missed my girls and the feeling that comes from playing with them–visceral live therapy.”
Bass player Maureen Herman added, “The first time we played together again, we weren’t sure what it would be like. After knocking the hell out of ‘He’s My Thing’ on the first try, we knew this was going to be fun–and it was going to rock like a motherfucker.”
Babes in Toyland, who lasted for only three albums (Spanking Machine, Fontanelle, and Nemesisters), broke up in 2001 after fourteen years together. The band announced their reunion last July.
