King Crimson return confirmed
Robert Fripp has confirmed King Crimson will return next year, as a long-running dispute with a record label nears its solution.
In 2009 he decided to call a halt to the band's proceedings because he felt he couldn't concentrate on creating new music while working through legal wrangles.
Now a change of regime at Universal Music Group has meant those business issues are close to being put in the past - and that means Fripp is able to look to the future of the band he founded in 1968.
Writing in his online diary, he says: "King Crimson is in motion. This is a very different reformation to what has gone before: seven players, four English and three American, with three drummers."
