It looks like Genghis Tron are teasing a reunion. The band, who have been inactive since 2010, shared the below photo, which seems to suggest that they may be working on new music:
During an interview with Rolling Stone, Sammy Hagar talked about the possibility of a Van Halen reunion. The singer said he has no inside information about a possible reunion, but he did add that he thinks it will happen one day
Hagar said the following:
“I foresee it happening. I’m not trying to plant a seed like I know something is happening. I know nothing. I just know what I know in my heart and my head, which is that it has to happen. Whether it’s Sam and Dave or not, I don’t know that either. But I know that Eddie and I are not done. If enough water goes under the bridge before we die, it’ll happen. It has to. God is going to slap us both around if he has to.”
The frontman, who hasn’t spoken to Eddie Van Halen since 2004, also added that he doesn’t agree with David Lee Roth’s recent comments in which he claimed that the band was “finished”:
“Until Ed or Alex Van Halen die, they’re not finished. Those are two great musicians that can friggin’ do as good as most people at half-mast. As a drummer and as a guitarist and creative person, Eddie, I can’t see them ever being finished. I wish they were more active, but I think Van Halen will never be finished.
If they want to get it together, they just have to call Dave or have to call Sammy. They can go out with Wolfie as a trio, but that’s not the legacy of Van Halen. I think they know that. I’m not predicting what’s going to happen, but I would tell you if there’s concerts next year, Van Halen will probably be on tour next year.”
It looks like From Autumn To Ashes may be teasing their return. The band shared the below message on Facebook:
“For the first time since January 2016 all five of us (Fran, Brian, Mike, Rob and Jeff) were in the same room at the same time last night. More soon. Happy New Year.”
Sister Sin’s “classic lineup” have reunited and are planning to perform at the Gefle Metal Festival in Gävle, Sweden and Helgeåfestivalen in Knislinge, Sweden in July 2020. More dates are expected to follow. This news comes after frontwoman Liv Jagrell recently announced that her Liv Sin project is going to be “taking a little bit of a break” following the departures of guitarist Chris Bertzell and bassist Tommie Winther.
The Circle Jerks will be reuniting in 2020. The band are planning to celebrate the 40th anniversary of “Group Sex,” which is set to be reissued next year. According to Brooklyn Vegan, the band’s lineup will feature singer Keith Morris, guitarist Greg Hetson, and bassist Zander Schloss. Here’s what they have booked so far:
05/21-25 Las Vegas, NV – Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival
05/29 Wiesen, AUT – Punk In Drublic
05/30 Munich, GER – Punk In Drublic
05/31 Berlin, GER – Punk In Drublic
Mötley Crüe are officially back! The band confirmed the news with the below video and statement:
“Almost 6 years after signing a Cessation of Touring agreement, the contract is off the table because a whole new generation of Crüeheads are relentlessly demanding for the band to come back together. Following the huge success of their Netflix biopic ‘The Dirt’, Mötley Crüe has seen a massive surge in new audience. And the band best known for breaking the rules has destroyed their cessation of touring contract in true Mötley Crüe-fashion, by literally blowing it up.
After 35 years together on stage, and 30 years since the release of ‘Dr. Feelgood,’ the members of Mötley Crüe parted ways without speaking to each other after their Final Show on December 31, 2015.
Vince, Nikki, Mick and Tommy didn’t come together again until 2018 to participate in the making of ‘The Dirt’ movie, which unexpectedly brought them closer together again including seeing them head back into the recording studio after having gone in their own directions for several years. The fuse was lit.
“Since playing Tommy Lee in ‘The Dirt’, so many of my fans have said how they wish they could’ve seen the real Mötley Crüe play live,” said Colson Baker (aka Machine Gun Kelly) “I never thought I would see the day when this would become a reality. But the fans spoke and Mötley Crüe listened!”
‘The Dirt’ currently enjoys an audience score of 95% on Rotten Tomatoes. And its massive global success earlier this year saw Mötley Crüe’s popularity rush to new highs, catapulting the band’s music back to the top of the worldwide charts with the younger 18-44 demographic now representing 64% of the band’s fanbase. Moreover, in the six months following the release of ‘The Dirt’, Mötley Crüe has celebrated a meteoric rise of almost 350% increase in streams of their music across all streaming platforms. However, most of the new fans have never seen any of the legendary live shows that Crüeheads have relished for close to 4 decades.

This news follows recent reports that seem to suggest that the band will be heading out on a stadium tour with Def Leppard and Poison.
When Mötley Crüe completed their farewell tour in 2015, they claimed they would never return and even took things a step further by signing a cessation of touring agreement. However, the band have now sparked reunion rumors after sharing an “interesting” Change.org petition that is calling for their comeback. This news comes after The Black Crowes’ manager, Mark DiDia (Red Light Management), reportedly said the following during an appearance on “The Howard Stern Wrap-Up Show”:
“There’s a Mötley Crüe / Poison / Def Leppard tour coming, there’s a Rage Against The Machine… AC/DC’s coming. There’s a lot of rock coming out next year.”
