Modern English to Bring Reunited Line-Up to Toronto on North American Tour
Modern English, the poppy British post-punkers best remembered for their classic 1982 pop tune "I Melt With You," have announced a string of North American dates to show off their recently reunited line-up. And although it's not exactly Canada-heavy, a Toronto, ON show is going down in July.

The shows mark the first time that vocalist Robbie Grey, bassist Mick Conroy, guitarist Gary McDowell, and keyboardist Stephen Walker - the band's original founding members - will perform live together since the mid-'80s. Joining them will be new guitarist Steve Walker, and although the press release announcing this made no mention of a drummer, one can assume there will indeed be one; Roy Martin was last seen pounding the skins for the guys. The Toronto gig is on July 15 at Lee's Palace; full dates are below.

Modern English are celebrating their 31st year together (minus a few break-ups in there, of course) with a new album, which was released on May 24. Soundtrack is their seventh studio album and was released on Darla Records. It's their first disc since 1996's Everything is Mad.
