This Week in Posivibes: Don’t Call it a Comeback


Though after a short year-long reunion (and a 48-year history), we’re officially losing Pink Floyd, this summer has been overrun with bands getting back together! Gregg Allman was joined on stage by Jaimoe and Warren Haynes at Peach Fest, and has recently said there is potential for a full Allman Brothers reunion. Culture Club is officially touring again, too, a delay from last year’s tour announcement after Boy George suffered from throat trouble.

From the punk scene, Sum 41 took the stage at the Alternative Press Music Awards—officially announcing their return with lead guitarist Dave “Brownsound” Baksh rejoining the band after nine years. And while there is no plan for a long-term reunion, we will also see the Academy Is… back together for Riot Fest in Chicago this September.

Finally, though they’ve never broken up, we’re graced this week with a new release from Duran Duran, a track off their upcoming album Paper Gods—which they announced two years ago. Listen to “You Kill Me With Silence” below and hop on over to The Daily Beast for more info from the band.
