Belly, the dream-pop band that had a hit with 1993’s “Feed The Tree” and was a staple of mid-‘90s MTV, is reuniting after 20 years, according to Rolling Stone. The band broke up in 1996, a year after its second album, King, failed to match the success of its debut. Frontwoman Tanya Donelly—who had previously been in the Throwing Muses and the Breeders—went on to a decade-long solo career, releasing five albums before walking away from music in 2006 to become a doula.

Donelly resurfaced in 2013, releasing a series of five EPs of new material online. Now she’s back to work writing and recording new songs for Belly, which will play its first live shows in two decades this July in the U.K., with dates in the U.S. in the works for August and September. The band’s website hasn’t mentioned any specific dates, but the promises that new songs will be available within the next few months.
