If we thought last year’s brief reunion of iconic 90s rockers Belly — which included a Philly stop at Union Transfer — was too good to be true, then we were proven wrong when the band announced last month that they’d be recording a new album, their first in two decades. The title of the forthcoming record is still unknown, but news broke of an April 6 release date, and we can now listen to the first Belly recording in 22 years — their “long-promised” cover of “Hushabye Mountain,” originally from the 1968 ...

90s alt-rockers Belly are back the old grind. After regrouping for a tour last year, which included a kickbutt stop at Union Transfer, the crew has decided to prolong the fun by recording their first new record in twenty years. Currently dubbed NameTBD, there’s no concrete release date as of yet.

What we do know, is that NameTBD will be released via Pledge Music, through which you can preorder a whole bunch of things, and get access to sneak peek content, along with the album. A portion of the proceeds will go towards ...

All This and More: A radiant Belly reigns supreme at Union Transfer

Belly | photo by Josh Pelta-Heller for WXPN

When a band frames a show as “An Evening With…,” the connotation is that this is a special event, a unique and refined occasion for the learned and erudite spectator. It can be construed as a veiled euphemism for “we’re all a little older now.”

As further evidence of the ‘90s revival that Gen X-ers are all enjoying lately, alt-rock darlings Belly have reunited for the first time since disbanding two decades ago. A new record — their third — is due out soon, and they closed the first leg of their ...

Back to Star: A conversation with Tanya Donnely on the return of 90s alternative faves Belly

On an MTV set in 1993, Tanya Donelly was interviewed in support of Star, the debut record she’d just released with her new band Belly. She exchanged several minutes-worth of witty banter with Kennedy, the mononymous veejay who always seemed to face the challenge of having to concurrently contain her effusive enthusiasm and her runaway ADHD. By contrast, the singer shows a unique guile and sly introspection, an unassuming administrator of a remarkably sharp tongue. Dressed in dark clothing and smoking a cigarette, Donelly is clearly a little uneasy in the ...

20.5 years after calling it quits, 90s outfit Belly are reuniting with new music and a full list of U.S. / U.K. tour dates. They’ll bring their dream pop songs to Union Transfer on August 14th.

Belly is the project of Tanya Donelly, who started her music career in Throwing Muses before co-founding The Breeders in the early 90s. Moving on to Boston-based Belly, the quartet released two full-lengths during their original run.

Their debut LP Star earned them a hit single with “Feed the Tree,” which you can ...
