The Sighs – Accidental Reunion

If you were into the college radio jangle power pop of the 90s like The Posies, Dillon Fence and Material Issue then Massachusetts power pop band The Sighs were probably on your radar. If not, you are in for a treat.

Formed in the early 80s but gigging around for years before releasing two acclaimed albums in the 90s; two records that stand the test of time and sound great today. Their debut record “What Goes On” was released in ’92 on Charisma Records, and the follow-up “Different” was released in ’96 on Big Deal Records before they called it quits.

Fast forward two decades after releasing their last album and lead guitarist Matt Cullen stumbles upon a box of analog tapes recorded at their old band house back in the ’90s and decides to see if the band wanted to take them on.

They headed into the studio with Academy Award winning (and Grammy Award nominee) producer John DeNicola along with help from Ed Stasium (Ramones, Smithereens, Soul Asylum) and Peter Keppler (Bowie, Eels) and what was destined to be a lost record, “Wait on Another Day” will be released on September 8th on Omad Records.

Domestic now, but spent early to late 80s playing drums in a hair metal band in Toronto. Since then I’ve lost the hair and have found new ways to scratch the rock and roll itch.
