Pavement

Pavement came together in Stockton, California in 1989. Over the course of the next decade, they would go on to become of the most critically-acclaimed and influential indie rock bands of all time, sticking fiercely to their ‘indie’ reputation over the course of five albums from 1992 to 1999.

After disbanding in 1999, Pavement came back together in 2010 to tour before wrapping things up once more. Another reunion was floated by the band’s members in 2015, but frontman Stephen Malkmus declined.

Now, there’s talk once more of another Pavement reunion, with guitarist Scott Kannberg mentioning the possibility in a recent interview. Speaking to the Italian podcast Radio Cittá Del Capo, Kannberg says there’s been some talk of getting the band back together, saying, “We haven’t really discussed it, but there has been some talk about our 30th anniversary in 2019, maybe doing some stuff, so stay tuned!” 

After all, Malkmus and Kannberg did perform a few songs together on stage at Kannberg’s 50th birthday party last year. So while there’s no concrete information of that Pavement reunion yet, it is a possibility, even if it’s ever so slight. If you’re a Pavement fan, you’ll know even that is worth celebrating.
