Babes In Toyland to reunite for first show in 18 years

The Minneapolis band will play The Roxy in Los Angeles next February

Babes In Toyland have confirmed details of a reunion show.

The punk band formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1987 and released three albums – ‘Spanking Machine’ (1990), ‘Fontanelle’ (1992) and ‘Nemesisters’ (1995) – before splitting in 2001.

Reuniting as their ‘Fontanelle’-era line-up of Kat Bjelland, Maureen Herman and Lori Barbero, the band are set to play The Roxy in Los Angeles on February 12, 2015.

“It was brought to my attention that not only do we have a lot of diehard fans from back in the day, but also a whole new generation of kids – my son Henry included – that were eager to see us live,” Bjelland said in a press release. “I felt some kind of obligation for them to see us, too. But mainly, I just missed my girls and the feeling that comes from playing with them – visceral live therapy.”

Herman added: “The first time we played together again we weren’t sure what it would be like. After knocking the hell out of ‘He’s My Thing’ on the first try, we knew this was going to be fun – and it was going to rock like a motherfucker.”

It’s not yet known whether the reunion will be a one-off or if more outings will be confirmed.
