The Promise Ring Reunite to Play 'Nothing Feels Good' on New Year's Eve

Well, it turns out Milwaukee-bred emo-pop band the Promise Ring are repressing their back catalogue this fall for a reason: the act are reuniting for a New Year's Eve performance of their 1997 collection, Nothing Feels Good.

Following a bit of online teasing last week, a press release now confirms that the four-piece are getting back together to play Chicago's Metro venue on December 31. There, they'll play all of Nothing Feels Good, as well as other cuts from their songbook.

Though Nothing Feels Good featured the bass playing of founding member Scott Beschta, the lineup for the reunion show will presumably be guitarist Davey Von Bohlen, guitarist Jason Gnewikow, bassist Scott Schoenbeck and drummer Dan Didier.

As previously reported, the Promise Ring announced last month that Jade Tree would be bringing the career-defining album back onto vinyl (and cassette) on October 30. Not soon after, the label added that it would also be repressing copies of the act's 1996 debut album 30 Degrees Everywhere and 1999's Very Emergency.

Pre-orders for all three releases can be found over here. Tickets to the show, meanwhile, can be bought over here.

It's as yet uncertain whether or not the Promise Ring will play any additional dates after the New Year's Eve performance. Following their original breakup in 2002, the band reunited for a one-off in 2005 and again for a few shows between 2011 and 2012.
