The Cars Reunite and Start New Album

Veteran engineer Paul Orofino has confirmed that The Cars — featuring vocalist Ric Ocasek, guitarist Elliot Easton, keyboardist Greg Hawkes and drummer David Robinson — are working on new material for an upcoming release.

In addition, the new wave rockers recently posted a short video clip featuring a preview of their new track “Blue Tip.”

No title or release date have been announced yet, but Billboard reports that the band is “strongly considering” touring soon.

    The best news to hit the music scene for years. So many bands these days are influenced by them and especially the grunge era guys. Hugely talented musicians, seriously amazing songs but sadly they will indeed miss the gorgeous Ben who was such a huge part of the band and just irreplaceable. However, given a choice, us fans would welcome a reunion even without Ben as I am sure his spirit will be amongst them. Welcome back guys.

    Surely this will be a bittersweet event in the absence of Benjamin Orr.
