NYC punk group the Lower East Side Stitches (or L.E.S. Stitches) have reunited after a 6 year hiatus. The band, which was famously featured in the Spike Lee film Summer of Sam, released 3 records between 1996 and 2000 before going on hiatus in 2001. The group features U.S. Bombs guitarist Curt Gove, and had reunited in 2005 and 2006 for two one-off reunion shows at legendary NYC bar, The Continental, before its closing.
Material for an upcoming new release is in the works, and the band is scheduled to headline the NYC Unity Fest in Brooklyn NY on July 7th with Murphy's Law, The Freeze, Turbo ACs, Subzero, and others.
