Fans of reunited emo band The Juliana Theory have been faced with both good news and bad news.

The good? They are headed into the studio to record a new album, the follow-up to 2005’s Deadbeat Sweetheartbeat. The bad? They are postponing their summer tour in order to get the record done.

“When we realized 2017 was the band’s 20th anniversary we decided to do a handful of reunion shows because we missed playing together & missed all of you,” the band writes. “The plan was to play a few shows filled with our old songs and then we’d put the band to rest again forever (or for a very, very long time). But when we announced that we’d be playing these shows your reaction was overwhelming. Making music together again — all of us in one place for the first time in many years — just felt right. We felt inspired and saw a future that extends beyond nostalgia… To make a long story short, we’ve decided to be a band again and we are thrilled to announce that we have begun writing a new record.”

Included in those postponed shows is an August 17 date at Royale in Boston. Which is fine, because now everyone can go see IAN SWEET that night at Great Scott. Or shit, just move IAN SWEET to the Theatre District club.

“To our Friends & Fans,

“When we realized 2017 was the band’s 20th anniversary we decided to do a handful of reunion shows because we missed playing together & missed all of you.

“We’ve made the decision to postpone our summer tour so that this new music can be shared with all of you prior to and during these shows. Refunds will be issued for all of the tickets purchased and we will have further announcements of new tour dates etc for you soon. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but we promise to make it up to you shortly.

“We love you and cannot thank you enough for always inspiring us.

“Love,
The Juliana Theory”
