REM to release two ‘Unplugged’ concerts for Record Store Day

The band, who announced their split after 31 years in the music industry back in 2011, will put out ‘Unplugged: The Complete 1991 And 2001 Sessions’ on April 19, Rolling Stone reports…

REM formed in Athens, Georgia in 1980. Announcing their split, they wrote on their website: “To our Fans and Friends: As REM, and as lifelong friends and co-conspirators, we have decided to call it a day as a band. We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished. To anyone who ever felt touched by our music, our deepest thanks for listening.”

Last year, the band’s bassist Mike Mills told Rolling Stone that the band wouldn’t be getting back together for a reunion. “We said we’re done and we’re done,” he said. “If we honestly thought there was a chance of a reunion tour, we might have said so at the time.”
