The Return of The Breeders

It's been ten years since The Breeders' last album, 2008's "Mountain Battles", but as we found out earlier this week, the wait for the next one is almost over. The title of the band's fifth album is "All Nerve" and it will be out on March 2nd via 4AD.

It will be the first album to feature the line up that recorded the band's most successful album to date, the 1993 classic "Last Splash", which means that Kim Deal is joining forces once again with sister Kelley, Josephine Wiggs and Jim Macpherson. If single "Wait in the Car" and new track "All Nerve" are an indication of what to expect from the new album, then we're certainly in for a special treat!

To celebrate the good news let's have another listen to "Wait in the Car" and then go back 28 years for "Doe", one of the best tracks on the album that started the ball rolling for The Breeders back in 1990, the wonderful "Pod".

 Good Morning


Of course the band's first line-up included also Tanya Donelly from Throwing Muses who left The Breeders after the 1992 "Safari" EP to form Belly. Interestingly enough Belly are also making their comeback in April 2018 with their first new album in 23 years, titled "Dove". This is a story for a different post, but it certainly looks like that the alternative rock of the '90s will play an important role in shaping up the sound of 2018!
