UPDATED: Basement Tweet For The First Time Since 2012, Internet Gets Anxious

Basement 2012

They say nothing good can ever last, and in November 2012 Basement offered further evidence of that being true when they announced they would no longer be a band. Hearts were broken, blogs were written, and more than a few depressed twenty-somethings curled up with their vinyl and a bottle of wine until the pain subsided.

This morning, for the first time since the band said farewell over a year ago, a new update has appeared on the group’s Twitter account. It reads “hi” and makes absolutely no mention of a reunion, but in the first hour alone the message received more than 1000 retweets. Sites like Rocksound and PropertyOfZack even sent the band a reply. Still, nothing.

We are not going to write off the possibility of a Basement reunion on the horizon, but right now it is merely speculation. Stay tuned for updates.

***UPDATE***
Basement is officially back. The group has confirmed that they will be reuniting and playing shows this summer. Read a full statement below.

In the autumn of 2012 we made a decision as a band to put things on hold, as many of us had other commitments in our lives that needed to take priority. Almost two years on, for the most part now settled in where we want to be, it feels like there is space for change. When we put out the hiatus statement, we genuinely thought we were going to be away for quite a while, and we didn’t see any chance of having free time to do anything other than focus on our professional lives. We’re glad that this is not the case. We are really excited to say that Basement will be playing shows this summer, and we’re looking forward to seeing everyone again.

Thank you so much for your continued support.

Alex, Andrew, Duncan, James and Ronan.
– Basement
