Robert Pollard reactivates Guided by Voices for new LP and shows, playing 2016 Sled Island (initial lineup announced)

Sled Island

Canadian music festival Sled Island has announced the initial lineup for its 2016 edition. With it comes some wider-reaching news: Robert Pollard is reactivating Guided By Voices and they’ll headline the festival. There’s also going to be a new GBV record, according to the band’s Facebook, where Pollard plays all the instruments. The live shows will be with a new lineup of Guided by Voices as well featuring Bobby Bare Jr. (guitar), Kevin March (drums), Nick Mitchell (guitar), Mark Shue (bass). Pollard last brought the GBV name out of the attic in 2014. (He’s got a new solo album too.) Stay tuned.

As for the rest of the initial Sled Island lineup (which is being guest-curated by Peaches), it includes Built to Spill, Deafheaven, Protomartyr, Julia Holter, Psychic TV, The Sonics, Duchess Says (who just played Megaphono in Ottawa) and more. Sled Island happens June 22 – 26 in Calgary, AB and tickets/passes are on sale now.
