There are two live shows planned for March, and we're told there'll be new music along in the meantime

Drum & bass veterans Bad Company UK (formerly known as Bad Company), who haven't put out a new record together since 2004, have reunited. As UKF reports, Fresh, dBridge, Maldini and Vegas are set to release new music later this month, ahead of live shows in London and Bristol.

Formed in 1998, Bad Company UK had a huge impact on the late 90s/early 00s D&B scene, and are best known for their 1998 breakout single The Nine, which helped push drum & bass in a darker, more industrial direction. In total, they've released four albums and over 20 singles. They also run the Breakbeat Kaos, Exit Records and Bad Taste Recordings label, while the popular Dogs On Acid forum began life on their website. However, since the mid-00s the four have been concentrating on solo work and other projects.

The reformed group will play Motion, Bristol on 24 March and Fabric, London on 25 March.
