(CMJ) Joe Lally, bassist for Fugazi, has announced the details of There To Here, a solo LP of bass-driven compositions that will see release October 9 on Dischord. The record, which was recorded by veteran Dischord producer Don Zientara and Ian MacKaye (who also guests on the album), will feature a myriad of other D.C. legends including Eddie Janney (Rites of Spring, One Last Wish), Lally and MacKaye’s Fugazi bandmate Guy Picciotto, Amy Farina (The Evens) and many more. To support the release, Lally is currently on tour with Antelope and, after that, the road warrior will continue with a 10-day jaunt opening for the Melvins and Big Business before heading to Brazil in November. While it’s not the news of a Fugazi return we were hoping for, it’s enough to make the return of the post-hardcore gods seem plausible.
