Extreme Confirm Reunion Album And Tour

Billboard's Jonathan Cohen (N.Y.) has issued the following report:

Boston-based rock outfit Extreme is reuniting for its first studio album in 13 years and world tour in 2008, Billboard has learned. The group, best known for the 1991 No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 hit 'More Than Words', disbanded in 1996 but reformed briefly in 2004 and 2006.

Details are pending on the album, which is being produced by guitarist Nuno Bettencourt, and the tour dates. Extreme now includes original members Bettencourt, frontman Gary Cherone and bassist Pat Badger, along with new drummer Kevin Figueiredo.

Of late, the band has reached a new audience thanks to the inclusion of its song 'Play With Me' in the video game Guitar Hero.

"We realized, not only are the people starved for rock'and'roll, so are we," Bettencourt says. "Let's eat."

Extreme will perform on Saturday (December 1st) at the Boston Music Awards.
