Modern Life Is War reforms, set to record album

Iowa hardcore band Modern Life Is War, who broke up in 2008, have reformed and will record a new album in May at Kurt Ballou's Godcity studio. The effort will be available in September via Deathwish Inc. Here's the official word:
"Modern Life Is War is an active band again. In September of last year, we wrote an album in John's basement in Marshalltown, which will be recorded at God City in May and released on Deathwish in September. The original lineup of Chris Honeck, Matt Hoffman, Jeffrey Eaton, Tyler Oleson and John Eich will be in place. For what it's worth, we are not approaching this as a 'reunion' but rather as a band with a new record that will be working to contribute something worthwhile. Extensive touring is not in the cards for us at this point. Our first show back will be at This Is Hardcore Fest in August, followed by a record release show in Iowa. We will announce an official release date as well as specific show dates and locations as soon as they are confirmed."

"...we wrote an album in John's bastufft ..." where i'm sure all the magic happens.

I never understood the point of people bumming out whenever a band reforms. That being said, I can't wait to see this band again.
