The Yo-Yo’s have announced details of two reunion shows at the Camden Barfly’s Jubilee club night in London on February 17.
The band – who feature Rich Jones (Ginger Wildheart band, Amen, The Black Halos), Tom Spencer (ex-The Loyalties) – have reformed to celebrate bassist/vocalist Danny McCormack’s 40th birthday. The band quit shortly after releasing their 2005 album, Given Up Giving Up.
“It’s been seven years since we were onstage after I battled some demons on the last tour,” McCormack tells Kerrang!. “To celebrate my 40th, we’re hosting two very special shows, and, in a way, I’m as surprised as anyone that I’ve made to 40; there’ve been some touch and go moments over the years. Luckily, I’ve made it through that and I’m really happy to celebrate the big 4-0 with the boys, friends and fans!”
Although these two shows are the only dates the band have planned, McCormack is not discounting any future activity.
“We’re not planning on touring or recording at the moment, as I’m not sure anyones sanity could take a full blown reunion, so this is just a one-off show,” reckons the bassist. “But, I guess you should never say never!”
