The Reivers came out of Austin Texas in 1985 with a critically-acclaimed album Translate Slowly. Boasting both a male & female vocalist, the band was part of what was known then as the New Sincerity movement. After three more records, two of them for a major label, the band called it quits in 1992. Now, they’re back with their first new studio album in 22 years called, appropriately enough, Second Story. We talk with vocalist/guitarist Kim Longacre about what brought them together after the long layoff, and the addition of keyboardist Eric Friend. We also delve into the band’s history – how they assembled their first 7-inch with glue stick, what is was like to tour the country with a newborn in an unairconditioned van back in 1986, their experience being signed to a major label for two albums.
