2010 is the start of a new decade, and a reason to start fresh. But it seems many bands are taking this new decade as an opportunity to move forward by turning their past into the future.Alice in Chains and Creed both reunited within the last year or so, releasing Black Gives Way to Blue and Full Circle, respectively. They will both continue to tour this year.
This series of events paved the way for several other 80s and 90s bands to follow suit.
Stone Temple Pilots announced in January 2009 that they would be touring and recording a new album, their first since 2001's Shangri-La Dee Da. The new album is set to be released this spring.
Blink-182 will continue to tour in 2010, and release their first new album since 2004.
Faith No More is currently touring Europe and Australia, though there are no definite plans for a new album. The Pixies are gearing up to record a new album this year, their first since 1991's Trompe Le Monde.
Most recently, Chris Cornell took to his Twitter account on New Year's Day to announce that Soundgarden has officially reunited and will be touring. Though there is talk of a b-sides box-set, no release has been planned yet.
So with all of this reuniting, will we see the decline of mish-mashed supergroups such as Audioslave and Velvet Revolver?
Who has yet to get back together that you are hoping will do so?
