New Jersey’s best dancers, the brilliant LIFETIME are reuniting for a US tour and new album. The new record, I’m Sick Of You Ripping Off Our Riffs LP/CD (JT0401) will be released on October 30.

The LIFETIME line-up remains the same as it was on their last record, Jersey’s Best Dancers LP/CD (JT1034), with the exception of guitarist Dan Yemin, who refused to participate. “I’ve got better things to do than rehash a bunch of old memories.” commented Dr. Dan, whose new band, PAINT IT BLACK, will be releasing a record CVA LP/CD (JT080) on July 29. Dan’s replacement is rumored to be Norm Arenas from nineties legends TEXAS IS THE REASON and more recently NEW END ORIGINAL.

Jade Tree will post more information as it becomes available.

Please consult the LIFETIME for current dates.
