Swervedriver Plan '08 Tour

U.K. rock act Swervedriver will reunite for a worldwide 2008 tour after a nearly decade-long hiatus. Dates and other details have yet to be announced.

The group (vocalist/guitarist Adam Franklin, guitarist Jimmy Hartridge, bassist Steve George and drummer Jez) split on the heels of its 1998 album "99th Dream." Although it never enjoyed major commercial success in the U.S., Swervedriver was beloved by fans for its psychedelia-tinged rock sound, best heard on the 1993 album "Mezcal Head." (Note: Great album!)

Of late, Franklin has recorded with his band Toshack Highway and as a solo artist. He's presently in the midst of a solo outing in support of his recent album, "Bolts of Melody," and will perform tonight (Oct. 19) in Milwaukee.
