After going on hiatus 2 years ago, Basement have announced they are active again and will be playing shows this coming summer. The band mysteriously tweeted “Hi”, sending their huge fan-base into hysteria before announcing officially via their facebook with this statement:

“In the autumn of 2012 we made a decision as a band to put things on hold, as many of us had other commitments in our lives that needed to take priority. Almost two years on, for the most part now settled in where we want to be, it feels like there is space for change. When we put out the hiatus statement, we genuinely thought we were going to be away for quite a while, and we didn’t see any chance of having free time to do anything other than focus on our professional lives. We’re glad that this is not the case. We are really excited to say that Basement will be playing shows this summer, and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone again. Thank you so much for your continued support. Alex, Andrew, Duncan, James and Ronan. – Basement”

Yay!
