Bitter Pills so sweet to swallow: 22-20s return

Nobody was more upset than this household when the 22-20s called it a day. Four years ago now, that was.

But they're back. Not in a reunion style; this is more a Battlestar Galactica-type re-imagining of the original concept. They've been testing a new line-up and a new sound under a false name (okay, one part John The Deluded Kidnapping Teacher to three parts Battlestar Galactica), the Bitter Pills.

Now, though, they're breaking cover. There's a free ep to download off of the website, and a US tour, alongside Band Of Skulls and The Whigs:

2-Apr FRI Philadelphia, PA North Star Bar
3-Apr SAT Allston, MA Harper's Ferry
4-Apr SUN Baltimore, MD Ottobar

16 Apr Fri Los Angeles, CA Echo

They're back, back, back, etcetera.
