The Juliana Theory reuniting for 20th anniversary tour
The emo reunions continue! The Juliana Theory, who put out at least a couple classics of the genre in the late ’90s and early ’00s, are back in action for a 20th anniversary tour. (They previously reunited in 2010 for the 10th anniversary of Emotion Is Dead.) Vocalist Brett Detar says:
The more time that passes the more I realize that I cherish certain memories and eras from my past and that I’m very lucky to have any opportunity to share the stage with dear friends that I grew up with – playing songs that make a group of people happy. A lot of those songs and memories are almost like little time capsules, and being able to revisit those from time to time is something that I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to do. I mean there aren’t always that many things you do in life that resonate with others or truly matter to people 10-20 years after the fact – even if it’s just a small group of people – and I’d just like to honor that if I’m being honest. You know It’s easy to get jaded, sit back and divorce yourself from a time period in your life and say “that’s not who I am anymore” – but to have a real connection with fans (though I hesitate to use that word because they feel more like friends) through music that you created in your parent’s basement alongside your childhood friends is an amazing thing and something I know the whole band feels fortunate to be able to have the opportunity to do again.
The tour hits Asbury Park on August 18 at House of Independents and NYC on August 19 at Stage 48. Tickets for the whole tour are on VIP presale now, and the general on-sale begins May 1 at 10 AM.
The Juliana Theory are also giving Emotion Is Dead a vinyl reissue. Listen to “We’re At The Top Of The World” off that album, with the list of tour dates, below.
