Posted by ChrisDude on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at 5:38 PM (PST)

After some European festival appearances, and just prior to their performance at Download Festival, post-hardcore legends Quicksand will play one show at London’s Electric Ballroom on June 12th. Tickets are available right here.

After two breakups and one reunion, Quicksand reunited again in 2012 and have since been performing live sporadically. The band is rumored to be working on new music, which will be their first since 1995′s Manic Compression.

I don’t speak a lick of German so deciphering exactly what was said in yesterday’s lineup announcement for the 2014 edition of Rock am Ring and Rock im Park was a real bitch.

From what I read, I’m pretty sure the dual-festival lineup now features Pennywise, Quicksand, Boysetsfire, alongside previously announced bands like Against Me!, The Offspring, Slayer, and more.

Apparently, there are still a bunch of bands that will be added to the lineup for Rock am Ring (June 5th-8th) and Rock im Park (June 6th-9th). We’ll be sure to keep you posted as more acts are revealed!

New Quicksand music in the works?

Posted by ChrisDude on Monday, July 22, 2013 at 6:10 PM (PST)

It looks like the reunion of Quicksand will continue on after all, as Brooklyn Vegan reports that the band has posted at least two photos that involve studio activity. This indicates that the band is either working on a new album or something else. No further more information is currently available at this time.

Quicksand’s last studio album, Manic Compression, was released in 1995. The band did try to record a new album during their first reunion, which lasted from 1997 to 1999, but abandoned that attempt after just a couple of songs and eventually broke up once again. Quicksand reunited again last year, but haven’t released any new material yet.

Petition for new Quicksand album circulating

Posted by ChrisDude on Sunday, December 30, 2012 at 11:40 AM (PST)

In anticipation of their upcoming reunion tour, a Quicksand fan has created an online petition for a new album and is asking the band to release one for the fans. The “fan” writes:

“This petition is for those who want new material from Quicksand. The band is getting back together for a U.S. tour in January, and I, a fan of Quicksand, have been wondering what will be next for the band. The goal is to get as many members to this petition as possible in order to get Walter Schreifels and company to listen to what we have to say. It’s been almost 18 years since the last time Quicksand released something new, these guys should release a new record. Maybe they should revisit and re-record the stuff they recorded for that unreleased album they did back in 1998 and put it on a new record, similar to what Van Halen did with “A Different Kind of Truth” or Guns N’ Roses with “Chinese Democracy”. I’ve been waiting for Quicksand to come back and make a new album for a long time and I hope my dreams will finally be fulfilled.”

If you think Quicksand should release a new album, go here to sign the petition.

Quicksand’s last studio album, Manic Compression, in 1995. The band did try to record a new album during their first reunion, which lasted from 1997 to 1999, but abandoned that attempt after just a couple of songs and eventually broke up once again.
