Bigger Lovers Are Back

Philadelphia ipower-pop stars The Bigger Lovers are back in action after spiitting up in 2005. The Lovers are reuniting to mark the digital and vinyl re-release of their 2001 debut, How I Learned To Stop Worrying, which comes out on March 8, with a pair of bonus tracks. There's new music, too, or at least music that the band - above, Scott Jefferson, Ed Hogarty, sometime Inquirer contributor and drummer Patrick Berkery, and Bret Tobias - began working on almost years ago and polished off this past October with producer Tony Goddess of Papas Fritas.

The choice cut among the newbies is the quite tasty "Little Giant," which is streaming for your listening pleasure below and is also available as a free download until Feb 1. On that day, a five song Little Giant EP goes on sale for 4 bucks at and on iTunes. And on March 12, the Lovers will play Johnny Brenda's, with Dennis Diken and Bell Sound on the undercard. To hear Berkery expound on the the Lovers renewal, as well as explain the "what would Bonham do?" philosophy he shares with Daniel Smith of Danielson, head on over to WXPN's The Key.
