Hot damn. The headline above is not a typo. First Lifetime, now THE PROMISE RING will be reuniting to headline a showcase at Flower Booking’s 15th anniversary celebration and fundraiser, , this November. The kings of Midwestern feel-good pop have not played a show since they disbanded in 2002 and their performance on November 12th will be their one and only reunion. Flower15 takes place November 8th through the 13th at Chicago’s world famous and other headliners include Jimmy Eat World, Ted Leo, Isis and Local H. In addition to the headliners, Maritime (which features members of The Promise Ring), American Analog Set, Just A Fire, Detachment Kit, Essex Green and Make Believe have all confirmed shows.
