They head out after the holidays, kicking things off in Albuquerque, N.M., January 28. This October saw the group on a brief West Coast tour. Several shows were sold out as dedicated fans flocked to see the band.

Like many notable indie groups, The Breeders have experienced their share of personnel changes and band swapping, and have been enshrouded in reunion myths since falling apart in the mid-‘90s.

In 1994, Kelley was arrested for drug possession and sent to a rehab clinic, effectively dissolving the band a year after they released the platinum album Last Splash.

Bassist Josephine Wiggs formed her own band while Kim went on with fellow Ohioan Jim MacPherson to form The Amps. After completing rehab, Kelley toured and recorded with her own project – the Kelley Deal 6000.

Kim raised the Breeders flag again in 1996 and by 1998, Kelley had rejoined. The sisters have spent the past few years writing, recording and playing secret gigs. The new Breeders album is said to be due sometime in February.
