REFUSED REUNION RUMORS RUNNING RAMPANT
Seeing as at MetalSucks we’re totally game to report on completely unsubstantiated rumors and speculate about them (eat that, journalism!) we feel that this certain little tidbit of Internet chatter to percolate over the weekend is absolutely worth reporting on: it seems that some folks think a Refused reunion is on the horizon.
I first heard about this titillating nugget of tantalizing news via actual-journalist / Revolver Magazine head honcho Brandon Geist’s Tweet:

The link yielded the screenshot you see above. While many including yours truly were quick to retweet with jubilant cries of joy, @lessbrighteyes was quick to poop at our party by pointing out that the above message could very well just be about a reissue of The Shape of Punk to Come that Epitaph Records is releasing. While this certainly sounds plausible I’m not giving up on a reunion just yet; Metal Injection is reporting that “anonymous sources close to the band have been talking of a European Festival return” (though no source is linked), and, ya know, isn’t reuniting all the rage these days? Seeing as playing classic albums start to finish live is also all the rage these days it’d be pretty damn cool if Refused support the re-release of one of the most important hardcore albums ever with a reunion tour in which they played it in full. Just sayin’.
