Jesus Lizard Reuniting in 2009

Seminal Chicago indie rock outfit the Jesus Lizard will play its first shows in 10 years in 2009, while Touch & Go will remaster and reissue its first four studio albums.

The original lineup of David Yow, Duane Denison, David Wm. Sims and Mac McNeilly will return to the stage May 9-10 at All Tomorrow’s Parties’ the Fans Strike Back in Minehead, England, which will also feature Devo, Spiritualized, the reunited Sleep and Young Marble Giants. The group will play "very limited" as-yet-unannounced dates in the months to follow, concluding with a November show in Chicago.

Meanwhile, Shellac’s Bob Weston and Steve Albini are supervising the remastering of the albums "Head," "Goat," "Liar" and "Down," which will be available on vinyl and CD. Release dates have not yet been confirmed.

A contemporary of like-minded acts such as Fugazi, Helmet, the Melvins and Nirvana, the Jesus Lizard is revered for its visceral noise-rock attack, driven by Yow’s unhinged persona.
