In addition to releasing the band's new album, Polyvinyl will also be reissuing Vivian Girls' first two albums (Vivian Girls (2008) and 2009's Everything Goes Wrong). Both records have been out-of-print for many years but are available on vinyl once more. The self-titled debut has been remastered for the occasion.

The band played its "farewell show" in Brooklyn in March 2014. Vocalists Cassie Ramone and Katy Goodman both released solo music while drummer Ali Koehler, who rejoined the band in 2012, formed Upset alongside ex-Hole drummer Patty Schemel.

Memory is Vivian Girls' first album since 2011's Share The Joy. They will tour their new album across North America from October, starting in Los Angeles and running through until November when the tour ends in Denver.
