Rockers CREED have confirmed they are reuniting for a new album and tour this summer (09), ending months of speculation.
The group split in 2004 but rumours began circulating in December (08) about plans for a major 2009 comeback tour.
Now frontman Scott Stapp reveals the reports are true and they are working on a new record titled Full Circle - although they refuse to call their chart return a reunion.
He tells People.com, "We never felt like we weren't together. We're not looking at this as a reunion. It's more of a rebirth."
And Stapp insists the bandmembers have settled the differences that forced them apart in the first place: "I said, 'I love you and if I've ever caused you any pain in your life forgive me.' And they said the same things right back."
