The Matches celebrated the tenth anniversary of their breakout record, E. Von Dahl Killed the Locals back in 2014 with a couple of shows in honor of the momentous occasion. Now, it appears like the band is planning to once again celebrate another momentous occasion. On Monday (Feb. 1), the California band announced that they will be celebrating the tenth anniversary of their second album, Decomposer. Though the record will official turn ten in September, the band has decided to do four shows in four different United States cities in June.
The first show will take place on June 4 at the Metro in Chicago. The second show will happen on June 10 at the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles. The third show will take place on June 17 at The Masquerade in Atlanta while the final show will happen at New York City’s Irving Plaza on June 18. Tickets for the four shows will go on sale this upcoming weekend.
DECOMPOSER TENTH ANNIVERSARY SHOWS:
June 4 – Chicago, IL @ Metro
June 10 – Los Angeles, CA @ Teragram Ballroom
June 17 – Atlanta, GA @ The Masquerade
June 18 – New York, NY @ Irving Plaza
While the band has been highly inactive for several years, they did give fans some hope with some new music recently. Last year, they released two new songs, “Life Of A Match” and “The Crucial Comeback (Mary Claire).” Both tracks marked the band’s first set of new songs since 2008’s A Band in Hope. Maybe 2016 will have the band finally release a follow-up to the 2008 release, after all, it is only February. Besides, they did advise fans to “standby” back in September.
