Reggie And The Full Effect return, launch Kickstarter to fund new album

Well here’s a story I didn’t expect to write today. It seems Reggie And The Full Effect is back!

The side project of Get Up Kids keyboardist (and more recently My Chemical Romance touring keyboardist) James Dewees got their start in the late 1990s, and the project’s second album, “Promotional Copy,” was one of the earliest releases put out by then-upstart Vagrant Records.

Anyway, Dewees has apparently restarted the project, and has turned to Kickstarter in order to fund recording and production of what should be his sixth ‘Reggie’ album. Here’s part of Dewees’ statement:

reggie has always been a super fun project from the beginning,for those of you who have followed it, you know that it hit a bumpy patch for a little while in my late 20’s. however, all bumps have been smoothed and i think the time is now to bring reggie back to place it used to be.
