Earlier today, Nickel Creek announced that they have reunited to make a new LP and to perform live shows together starting with a short tour in April. The bluegrass trio, that had been together since 1994, called a quits back in 2007 and performed its last show at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn.
During the seven-year hiatus, all three members pursued other musical avenues, which included mandolinist Chris Thile founding the bluegrass quintet The Punch Brothers, fiddler Sara Watkins taking on a solo album and guitarist Sean Watkins collaborating with Switchfoot’sJon Foreman to create the band Fiction Family. There are no details as to the name of the next LP, but they did release a music video for the new single, “Destination,” along with tour dates, which you can view below.
