Chromatics and Johnny Jewel have had their involvement in the forthcoming Twin Peaks reboot confirmed by their management.
The revival of Mark Frost and David Lynch’s cult TV series, which first aired between 1990-91, will hit the small screen on May 21 – airing at the same time on both Showtime in the US and on Sky Atlantic in the UK.
The latest development in the roll-out of the new season has arrived today (March 7) with the news that two LA-based indie artists have had their involvement in the reboot confirmed by their management company.
Echo Park Records (EPR) took to their Twitter account to announce that two acts on their roster – four-piece Chromatics and solo artist Johnny Jewel (who is also a member of Chromatics) – have been recruited to contribute to the new season of Twin Peaks in some capacity.
While EPR’s Alexis Rivera didn’t elaborate on what each act’s involvement in the new series might be, speculation in the past has linked Chromatics’ frontwoman Ruth Radelet with an acting role in the reboot.
See the announcement below.

Rivera also confirmed to NME that Chromatics’ long-awaited fifth album, ‘Dear Tommy’, will be released this spring.
Meanwhile, actress Laura Dern spoke positively of the third season of Twin Peaks in a new interview, which was published yesterday (March 6).
“People have to tune in, because I am just so excited about it,” Dern revealed. “It’s brave and fiery and deep, poignant and hilarious.”
