The Dream Syndicate reunite for anniversary shows

The legendary Paisley Underground band, The Dream Syndicate, have reformed to play four dates in Spain in September to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their debut album, The Days Of Wine And Roses.

According to Slicing Up Eyeballs, Dream Syndicate rontman Steve Wynn announced the reunion shows - billed as the band's first since 1988 - on his Facebook page. The line-up will feature Wynn, original drummer Dennis Duck, bassist Mark Walton (who joined after 1984′s Medicine Show) and guitarist Jason Victor, who plays in Wynn’s current band, The Miracle Three.

Wynn wrote: “This September marks the 30 year anniversary of the release of The Days of Wine and I’m excited to say The Dream Syndicate will be commemorating the date by reforming for a handful of shows in Spain, the first time that Dennis Duck, Mark Walton and I will have performed as the Dream Syndicate since we walked off stage at the I-Beam in San Francisco back in 1988. We’re going to be joined for these dates (and very possibly some more beyond) by Jason Victor who has so ably carried the torch of the guitarists who have played these songs with us before. I’m really looking forward to these shows and I hope that some of you will have the chance to come down and see them for yourselves.”

The Dream Syndicate will play:

September 21: Barcelona, Spain
September 22: Valenica, Spain
September 25: Madrid, Spain
September 29: Bilbao, Spain
