The comeback of Bon Iver might take longer than we thought
Songwriter Justin Vernon recently announced to start a ‘new cycle’ of his project BON IVER, four years after their successful second album Bon Iver, Bon Iver. But now it looks like the start of the cycle will be a very slow one indeed. In a new interview with Grantland Vernon stated that he take things ‘really slow’ with the comeback of his band.
The band will reform on his self-curated EAUX CLAIRE MUSIC AND ARTS FESTIVAL next week but beyond that the future is currently quite uncertain. Vernon states:
‘Our show is our main focus. We don’t have anything booked after this. We don’t have any plans. We’re not being secretive — we just don’t have any plans. It’s just about, Play the show and put all of our energy into one show— for once in my life, let’s just play one fucking show and care just about this one show for a goddamn change. It’s better than, All right, we’re going out on tour and we’re going to hit these markets and this, that, and the other. We might play some new stuff. I don’t know, we’re going to figure it out. I go home next week for two weeks of rehearsals and play with my boys.’
He’s also ranting against big major festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza and Co. in this interview. So, let’s hope that the performance of BON IVER on the weekend of July 17th and 18th will help to ignite his passion to record more actual music.
