Soul Coughing Reunite For First Shows In 25 Years

June 21st, 2024

They said it would never happen, but after 25 years, Soul Coughing are reuniting for a 17-date American tour beginning on the west coast on September 11th in San Diego and concluding on the east coast with two nights at Brooklyn Steel in Brooklyn, NY on October 4th and 5th.

All four original members — Mike Doughty (vocals/guitar), Mark degli Antoni (keyboards/sampler), Sebastian Steinberg (bass), and Yuval Gabay (drums) — reunite for their first shows together in 25 years. Soul Coughing formed in 1992 after meeting at New York’s Knitting Factory, where Doughty worked the door. The guys merged drum & bass, trance, rock & roll, and hip-hop to create a totally unique strain of music. As Doughty says, “Our music didn’t fit into the landscape then and it doesn’t now. We were super incorrect. We were messy. We were all over the place. There were moments in our career where we tried to be less different, and we always failed.” 

Over their eight-year history, the guys collected a motley crew of fans who gravitated to the deeply weird — yet danceable — energy of their discography, starting off with their 1994 debut, Ruby Vroom. They broke up in 2000, but Soul Coughing has a new crop of listeners who may have heard standouts like “Super Bon Bon” on a video game soundtrack or “Circles” on a favorite TV show.
