MeteorCity reissued Egypt‘s originally self-released demo from 2004 (which was also released on vinyl in 2008 by Lyderhorn Records) on CD last year, and it was my first exposure to the band. Now, I know on paper Fargo, North Dakota doesn’t exactly seem like an exotic locale (the Coen Brothers notwithstanding), but it’s not every day you hear of bands coming out of there, so in a way it is. The disc, if you’ll recall, was decent, so I thought I’d post this PR wire update about their reunion this Friday.
Egypt is reuniting for a show Friday, May 21st in Fargo, North Dakota!!!! Here are the details:
