According to the In The Studio section in Rolling Stone Magazine, hints are made that Peter's I/O album could be released in early 2007.

Official Gabriel Site Says Genesis Reunion Will Not Happen

According to a post from Tina, who manages part of the official Peter Gabriel site, the much talked about possibility of a Genesis reunion is unlikely. The post reads: "[a Genesis reunion] has been the main topic of conversation recently, and many of you have written in asking for the official word. I'm told that sadly, there is no truth in it; this rumor seems to come and go every few years, and we think that this particular one has been fuelled by the fact that Phil, Peter and Steve Hackett have all been interviewed lately in connection with their solo careers and they are always asked about the band. They all say the same thing; that they remain good friends and although there are no specific plans, they would not rule out the possibility at some time - although getting the five of them together would prove too hard given their various solo commitments.

This post does not address the "meeting" that Steve Hackett and Peter Gabriel referred to in various interviews. I suppose we will just have to wait and see, but based upon this post, things don't look as positive as many had once hoped.

Genesis' Producer Gives Update On The Genesis Remixed 5.1 Back Catalog

Nick Davis, Genesis' long-time Producer, recently provided an updated on his remixing of the Genesis back catalog. Davis stated that he recently completed the 5.1 remix of Wind And Wuthering. He added the remaster was "probably the greatest difference in 'sound' of all the albums" he has remixed so far. Davis also shared that he remixed the Spot The Pigeon three-song EP in 5.1. He is currently working on the 5.1 remix of 1978's And Then There Were Three along with the non-album tracks from that LP, "Vancouver" and "The Day The Lights Went Out." Once completed, all of the Genesis studio albums from the 1970s will have been remixed in surround sound. 

To date, no release date has been confirmed and there has been no confirmation as to whether these non-album tracks will be added as bonus cuts or if they will be part of some other release. Davis commented in the forum of the official Genesis site that he suspected that the newly reissued and remixed Genesis back catalog may be released all at once and may coincide with another project. While this was a vague sentiment, one would suspect that he is referring to the much talked-about possibility of a Genesis reunion concert or tour. More on this when we get it!
