Robert Pollard is bringing back the band for their first shows since 2004

[b]Guided By Voices[/b] mainman [b]Robert Pollard[/b] says he has reunited the band’s “classic line-up” to play a gig this October for old record label [b]Matador[/b].

[b]Pollard[/b] last played with the band in 2004, and they will play as part of [url=]Matador’s 21st birthday at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas[/url]. The three-day event takes place on October 1-3.

“We got the band back together. Not the original line-up – the classic line-up,” [b]Pollard[/b] told Spinner. “It’s better than the original line-up. [b]Tobin Sprout[/b] and [b]Mitch Mitchell[/b] [guitars], [b]Kevin Fennel[/b] [drums] and [b]Greg Demos[/b] [bass].”

He added that the band will be “performing songs from the albums [b]’Propeller'[/b], [b]’Bee Thousand'[/b], [b]’Alien Lanes'[/b] and [b]’Under The Bushes Under The Stars'[/b] as well as from singles and EPs from that era”.
