The legendary band will celebrate the 25th anniversary of This Is Spinal Tap mockumentary by releasing a new album, their first since 1992’s Break Like The Wind. They last reunited in 2007, playing the  Live Earth concert at London’s Wembley Stadium.

According to one codpiece wearing member, there is a purpose behind the madness…”We’ve never recorded the song we did at Live Earth, Warmer Than Hell, and I think [Spinal Tap] are trying to revisit their old success.”

Rob Reiner caught up with the band at the time of that gig, shooting a short film showing what Spinal Tap’s members had done with their lives. Nigel Tufnel was raising miniature racing horses, Derek Smalls was recovering from an internet addiction, and David St Hubbins had become a hip-hop producer. (Hell, there’s three good reasons to reunite right there.)

The band have yet to announce their new drummer…
