Exclusive: Pale Divine Doing a Reunion Show, December 29 at the Pageant

Well, here's something I didn't see coming: Fifteen years after splitting, '80s/'90s local darlings Pale Divine are doing a reunion show December 29 at the Pageant, a gig confirmed by guitarist/vocalist Richard Fortus. No further details are available at this time.

For those unfamiliar, the band sounded more like it hailed from England, not St. Louis, with its Peter Murphy-dark vocals, shimmering goth/post-punk-tinged guitars and dramatic atmospherics. Listen to a few MP3s from the band's Straight To Goodbye CD and catch a video of the Eyes (the band's name before changing it to Pale Divine after signing to Atlantic Records) after the jump.
