Dresden Dolls Ending Hiatus, Planning Live Shows for 2010

The Dresden Dolls' Amanda Palmer has revealed that the Boston punk/cabaret duo will be reuniting in order to embark on a tour in 2010.

The band, whose last studio album was 2006's Yes, Virginia, announced they would be taking a hiatus in 2008, right around the time Palmer released her solo album, Who Killed Amanda Palmer?.

But while currently taking her solo project across Europe, Life Music asked Palmer whether there was a possibility of more Dresden Dolls shows. She replied, "Yes, not sure when and where. We are planning dates for 2010. We miss playing with each other."

Palmer did not, however, mention whether the group are planning any new recordings.

The other half of the duo, Brian Viglione, has been keeping busy as well, playing drums for the World/Inferno Friendship Society. He also hit the skins for Franz Nicolay of the Hold Steady's solo album, as well as Nine Inch Nails on their Ghosts I-IV.
