LOS ANGELES (MediaWire) — The founding members of The Beach Boys announced that they are planning to reunite for a 50th Anniversary in 2012 that will include both a new studio album as well as a 50-date international tour, kicking off in April with a headline billet at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
The Boys reportedly already have the lion’s share of the new album in the can, with more on the way for the album, which will be released in 2012 on the band’s original label, Capitol. As well, commemorative reissues of material from their back catalog are also in the works.
Founded in Hawthorne, California in 1961, The Beach Boys were originally comprised of the three Wilson brothers: Brian, Carl and Dennis, their cousin Mike Love, and school friend Al Jardine. In 1962, neighbor David Marks joined the group for their first wave of hits on Capitol Records, leaving in late 1963, and in 1965, Bruce Johnston joined the band when Brian Wilson retired from touring to focus on writing and producing records for the group. For five decades, America’s first pop band to reach the 50 year milestone has recorded and performed the music that has become the world’s favorite soundtrack to summer.
The band still holds the Billboard /Nielsen SoundScan’s record as the top-selling American band for albums and singles, and they are also the American group with the most Billboard Top 40 chart hits (36).
