The 90s shoegazers have more than a few shows in the queue.

Lush will precede their 2016 reunion tour with a new EP, according to an interview with Manchester Academy.

The as-yet-untitled EP consists of four tracks written by co-founders Emma Anderson and Miki Berenyi and produced by Daniel Hunt of Ladytron and Jim Abbiss. There are also plans for a full-length record, if things go well.

“I’m a bit anxious,” Anderson says, “wondering if people will think the new record will be as good as the old.” Adds bassist Phil King: “I know I’m biased, but I work [in picture research] for a music magazine, and I heard music all day and so much sounds nondescript or derivative. But Emma just has this way of writing unusual chord changes that manage to weave lovely melodies over the top, and it immediately sounds like Lush.”

While there is no release date for the EP, it will precede the tour, which begins on April 30 in Manchester. Their slate of dates follows. [via CoS]
