A week ago, Emma Anderson sent out a cryptic tweet that immediately went viral: “Seven days.”

And, like clockwork, the Lush reunion was announced today, along with 4ad’s news of an albums-and-rarities box set and vinyl reissue of singles collection Ciao!

Lush have announced a 2016 reunion gig at the London Roundhouse.

Lush fanclub zine with hand-written lyrics.

Lush’s first gig (one of many, presumably) will take place at the beautiful London Roundhouse on May 6, 2016. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, September 30.

I wouldn’t be shocked if I ended up flying to London to see them. The last time I recall seeing them was at Local 186, a skuzzy Allston club with low ceilings and beer-sticky floors. They transcended the venue.

And it was fun to see them in Boston — I always felt that they straddled the line between their rawer-edged labelmates, like Pixies and Throwing Muses, with the gauzier, iconic “4AD sound.” (Mixing in their own pop sensibility, of course.)

Looking forward to seeing what’s next! Follow @lushbandtweets on Twitter or Facebook.
