The Receiving End of Sirens Tease 2020 Reunion
It looks like The Receiving End of Sirens are teasing a reunion for this spring.
The Massachusetts-based emo-rock outfit hasn't publicly performed together since 2012 during the group's first reunion following a 2008 breakup. The band formed in 2003 and was part of the Vans Warped Tour in 2005.
That year, The Receiving End of Sirens released their debut studio album, Between the Heart and the Synapse, on Triple Crown Records. The Earth Sings Mi Fa Mi followed in 2007. A deluxe reissue of Between the Heart arrived in 2010.
But another comeback from The Receiving End of Sirens could be just around the corner, judging by recent rumblings. A video teaser shared to Facebook on Monday (Feb. 17) begins with someone typing "The Receiving End Of Sirens" and "Envy On The Coast 2010" into a Google search bar. (Envy on the Coast performed as a supporting act during some of the groups's shows around their initial split.) Watch the clip down toward the bottom of this post.
"May 2020" is the only caption shared alongside the new video. But in the teaser clip itself, that text first appears as "May 2010" before being stylistically morphed into the future date. Elsewhere in the video, live footage of the band performing emerges in a quick, dream-like collage.
Does this mean The Receiving End of Sirens are ready to mount a second reunion come this May?
That certainly seems like it very well may be the case. For any old emo-heads, relive the band's 2005 "Planning a Prison Break" music video below.
