The New York Times broke the news, which Bond revealed during a Sept. 18 show at Joe's Pub that featured Mellman on the piano. Seeking Asylum! will play the Pub April 21-May 6, 2016.

There had been speculation whether the duo would reunite as part of Bond's yearlong retrospective at the venue. The duo told the Times that they needed a break from the act, "What makes it special makes it dangerous," Mellman said.
