Flight of the Conchords announced they will be reuniting for the first time in three years. The parody folk duo hasn’t made an appearance in the U.S. since 2013 at the Funny or Die: Oddball Comedy & Curiosity Festival.
Their first performance will be held at the Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island. The festival commences with Flight of the Conchords headlining July 22nd. As of now, no other tour dates have been announced.
Yesterday, on Twitter, the band confirmed their appearance.

In an interview last year with Consequence of Sound, Jermaine Clement said, “We are hoping to announce a tour. We’ll announce it before the end of the year, hopefully, and then some time next year get on the road … after we get some new guitar strings and that sort of thing.” The band also revealed they have started working on a new film late last year.
