SAIGON KICK's Original Lineup To Announce First Reunion Dates 'Any Day Now'

The original lineup of the acclaimed 1990s rock band SAIGON KICKMatt Kramer (vocals), Phil Varone (drums), Jason Bieler (guitar) and Tom Defile (bass) — will announce its first shows since 1992 "any day now," according to Kramer. The band rehearsed for the first time on November 12, 2012 in Southern Florida in preparation for the reunion dates. They are being joined by another returning SAIGON KICK member, bassist Chris McLernon, who will handle rhythm-guitar duties on the road.

Bieler, who recently launched a new project called OWL STRETCHING, told Love-It-Loud.com last year about the prospect of a SAIGON KICK reunion, "I am open to anything at this point, I am really just distilling this down to what it was about when I started… making music and having fun. So far… so good!"

SAIGON KICK is perhaps best remembered for its second album, 1992's "The Lizard", which spawned the band's biggest hit single, "Love Is On The Way". The track reached No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 and its accompanying video was in the top 10 MTV countdown for many weeks. Just before touring for the LP commenced, DeFile was fired and was replaced by ex-COLD SWEAT bassist Chris McLernon. They toured from summer 1992 to spring 1993 and "The Lizard" was eventually certified gold by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association Of America) for sales in excess of 500,000 copies.
