The band's "classic" Pollard-Sprout-Mitchell-Demos-Fennell lineup announced a reunion in 2010, and true to their prolific reputation they released six albums between 2012 and 2014 before breaking up once more. They announced another reunion in 2016 with a lineup that initially consisted of Kevin March in his third stint for GBV on drums, plus newcomers Bobby Bare Jr. (the son of CountryMusic legend Bobby Bare) and Nick Mitchell (no relation to Mitch) on guitars and Mark Shue on bass, before Mitchell was replaced by long-serving post-classic era guitarist Doug Gillard. The reunion included a tour and a new album, ''Please Be Honest''.

* ArchivePanic: To say they have a '''LARGE''' discography is quite the understatement.
** This isn't even taking the numerous side projects into account.
* AttentionDeficitCreatorDisorder: Pollard is not only in GBV and has a solo career, but is in several other side projects like Boston Spaceships and Circus Devils. And that's not getting into Sprout's solo career.
