Midwestern emo pioneers Boys Life to reunite, reissue sophomore album on Topshelf

I hate to call it a trend, but there sure have been a shit-ton of ’90s emo bands reuniting lately. (I, for one, will not complain about this one bit since many of these bands are among my all-time favorites.) Now, the reunion bug has struck Kansas City’s Boys Life. The band originally existed from 1993 to 1997, releasing two full-lengths in that time period as well as a slew of singles and split releases, most notably a split 10-inch with Christie Front Drive. Now, their second and final album, 1996’s Bob Weston-produced Departures And Landfalls, will be ushered back into print through the loving hands at Topshelf Records on August 14. What’s even more exciting is that the band will play shows this fall in support of the reissue, details on the first of which are below. If you’re unfamiliar with the record, no worries: Until Topshelf gets the audio officially back online, YouTube’s got you covered.
