Spandau Ballet Makes U.S. Return With SXSW Film Premiere and Concert

Last week, the popular '80s act teased on Twitter that the band is working with producer Trevor Horn, and Friday (Aug. 1) they officially announced that new material is being recorded. Bassist Martin Kemp shared his excitement by tweeting an in-studio photo with the caption, “@garyjkemp smashing it in the Studio today laying down guitar on new @Spandau_Ballet tracks!”

Spandau Ballet reunited in the U.K. in 2009, and played their first stateside concert in nearly 30 years at South By Southwest in March. Their SXSW appearance also marked the world premiere of the band’s documentary “Soul Boys of the Western World.” 

Spandau Ballet’s last album release came in 2009 with Once More, which primarily consisted of re-recordings of its older songs.
