Providence, Rhode Island-based Verse who split up in 2009 have announced plans to reunite for shows and a new album in 2012. The band made this statement:

I think it just really came down to us missing playing music and the chemistry we shared in our creative process. Things just got a little crazy in our lives at home, with being on tour all the time, having all this weight to carry and people to keep happy. It really ended up burning us out. We needed some time to step away and focus on having some sort of stability for a while.

The band's first show back is scheduled for February 11th at AS220 in Providence alongside Defeater, Soul Control and Sweet Jesus and plans are underway for an appearance at the Belgian music festival Groezrock in April of 2012. VERSE also plans on hitting the West Coast of the United States at some point, and a European tour with friends and labelmates Soul Control in the summer is in the works. As far as new material goes, the group intends on recording a new full-length record in the coming year as well.

They last released Aggression.
