A 20th anniversary edition of the Breeders' classic album Last Splash will be released in April. The new version is titled LSXX and will contain extra material (track list still TBA, but Kim Deal said in a recent interview it will likely include the rare Safari ep among other things).

The Breeders are also planning shows to celebrate the album's 20th anniversary - so far the only date announced is a June 2013 appearance at the Deerhunter-curated ATP festival in Camper Sands, U.K. (Kim Deal just played a solo show there last weekend) but more dates (including U.S. dates) will be announced in the weeks and months to come.

Last Splash was released August 30, 1993 and the Breeders played their last gig on September 5, 1994. According to 4AD, 17 years, 8 months, and 30 days later, Jim Macpherson and Josephine Wiggs got a text from Kim:

"Should we get together to play Last Splash for its 20th anniversary?"

Apparently the answer was an emphatic yes, because they subsequently met up in November to start rehearsals!

For more on the Last Splash anniversary visit 4AD. For more on the ATP festival in June (also includes Kim Gordon, Black Lips, Deerhunter, and more) visit ATP.

Video from Kim Deal's solo gig at last weekend's ATP festival (including a performance of a brand new song) is posted here.
