While it's hardly the first time this rumor has circulated, it's about to pick up speed. "According to reliable sources, it's finally happening in 2010!" Brooklyn Vegan announces. "There will be multiple, possibly four, nights of shows at NYC's Central Park Summerstage in September of that year. That could be part of a tour. That could be the end of a tour, the middle of a tour, or even the beginning of a tour, but it seems reasonable to speculate that they might make their official comeback at Coachella in April."
While frontman Stephen Malkmus' website is quiet -- its news section hasn't been updated since mid-2008 -- the timing seems ideal as it's been 10 years since they officially disbanded after a final performance at England's Brixton Academy. In early December '99, a spokesperson for the band's label, Domino Records, told the NME, "Pavement are retiring for the foreseeable future to: 1. Start families 2. Sail around the world 3. Get into the computer industry 4. Dance 5. Get some attention."
In January guitarist Scott Kannberg told the NME that the band might reunite for 2009's Coachella festival, although the reformation never happened. A month earlier, Malkmus said he was open to a reunion as well.
