Recently reunited English shoegazing pioneers Slowdive played live for the first time in 21 years this week. The quintet played a warm up show in London prior to embarking upon a world tour that kicks off on May 29 in France. Presently, the tour consists of mostly festival dates including two stops in the States; July 20 in Chicago at the Pitchfork Festival, and the recently announced FYF Fest in Los Angeles on August 23.
The five-piece consists of Neil Halstead (vocals/guitar), Rachel Goswell (vocals/guitar), Nick Chaplin (bass), Christian Savill (guitar), and Simon Scott (drums). The band was originally active between 1989 to 1995 and released three studio albums. Halstead and Goswell formed the band Mojave 3 shortly after Slowdive broke up in 1995.
