Another blast from the past returns! Remember "Connected" and "Step It Up" from the early '90s? The Stereo MCs are back according to a recent post on DrownedInSound. May will be a big month for the MCs as it will mark the first time any of their material has been commercially available since 2001. The group will first release "Warhead" and "First Love" on May 16th solely on iTunes, but a 12" single in the UK will soon follow on May 30th. Commenting on their new stuff, the band said: 'This record represents a new surge of energy for us, in that we're making music as we feel it again, with much collaboration, reflection and interaction, culminating in our new label Graffiti Recordings, and our 5th album, Paradise. We've made a record in our own backyard, homegrown, and without relying on the mainstream--we're really excited to be setting all this off in 2005.'
Stereo MCs have a list of festival appearances and gigs lined up for the summer, with the release of their new LP, Paradise, set for August.
