D.C. post-hardcore act and Touch And Go Records darlings Girls Against Boys have reunited following a 10-year hiatus. The group led by Eli Janney last released a full-length record in 2002, but will be dropping an EP sometime this year. The first single, “It’s A Diamond Life,” is already streaming and available for download at Consequence Of Sound. So listen to that, then go put on Venus Luxure No. 1 Baby for old times’ sake.
The group also has a number of tour dates coming up. They’re mostly in Europe, but September finds it hitting New York, Philadelphia, and D.C., so maybe there’s some hope for the rest of America after that.
