Austin band the Arc Angels have recently reunited with the goal of releasing an album of new material and a DVD. Additionally, they will be playing some live shows this year. I’m a fan of the Arc Angel’s debut album, so I’m looking forward to hearing the new music!
Original members Doyle Bramhall II, Charlie Sexton, and Chris Layton are part of the reunited group. Unfortunately, original bassist and Double Trouble member Tommy Shannon will not be a part of the new group.
Here’s what Bramhall and Sexton have to say about the reunion:
“Charlie and I started to write together again and decided that we should get the band back together. The chemistry that we all have together is one entity and it’s something very real. It’s fun,” said Bramhall. “We’re trying to take advantage and savor the good things and one of the good things is the Arc Angels,” added Charlie Sexton.
The group will be kicking off the reunion with a show at SXSW tomorrow, March 20. They will be playing more shows this Spring and will be opening for Eric Clapton during his Royal Albert Hall run in May. Check out the band’s MySpace page for tour dates and information.
