Poster Children announce Fall tour dates to celebrate 25th anniversary of Daisy Chain Reaction

Poster Children

Poster Children are a “post wave” band that formed in 1987 in Champaign, IL. They released the Steve Albini-produced ‘Daisy Chain Reaction’ in 1991 via Twin/Tone. The album was picked up for wider release by Sire Records in 1992 who pushed the single, If You See Kay and made it an alternative-rock hit, with regular rotation on MTV’s 120 Minutes and commercial radio play. Watch the video for If You See Kay via YouTube below.

The album is now considered an early Alt-Rock classic, All Music Guide even writes that the album was “an unappreciated influence on the Smashing Pumpkins early on.” Pitchfork called them “perhaps the most reliable college band of the ’90s.” The band continued releasing records and touring regularly up until around 2004 which saw the band’s last album, ‘No More Songs about Sleep and Fire’. The band have announced their return to touring to celebrate the 25th anniversary of ‘Daisy Chain Reaction’ with dates this Fall, including Pygmalion Festival.
