The Guided By Voices reunion may have hit a bump in the road recently, with the announcement of canceled ATP and Primavera Festival shows mistakenly causing many people to believe the band had split again. Fortunately, that isn’t the case, and the release of the new Let’s Go Eat the Factory is going ahead in January.
This is the first record the band has put out since its split in 2004, and it features the “classic” lineup of Guided By Voices for the first time since the Under the Bushes album in 1996. There are 21 tracks, some of them very short in the best GBV tradition, and you can hear the whole record streaming for a limited time over at NPR’s website.
