Trial Reunion Show In The Works

Hardcore band Trial are apparently planning a reunion show. The Seattle group released an album with Equal Vision Records in 1999, breaking up shortly thereafter. The performance, which has yet to be scheduled, will feature Timm McIntosh (guitar), Greg Bennick (vocals), Nick Platter (drums), and Brian Redman (bass). Guitarist Josh Freer has yet to confirm his involvement. Here's what guitarist McIntosh has to say about the development:

"I know that everyone, including us, thought that it would never happen. Sometimes, things get blown out of proportion and the rumors grow into something bigger than they actually are. Greg and I never hated each other, we had difficult times like any band does, but it could never kill the friendship that we've had since I met him at the Inside Out show in 1993. We were friends before Trial, and we'll be friends long after this reunion... Because all of our schedules are hectic at the moment, it will have to be in between all of our projects. I don't know when it will happen, but more than likely, the soonest would probably be fall. This summer is filled with reunions, and that almost makes us think that waiting until next year might be a better idea. Either way, there will be one more Trial show in the future. I hope this clears the rumors, there's nothing more or less to this. So speculation is unnecessary."
