Gotye Getting Back to "The Basics"

Gotye is going back to his old band -- and real name -- this fall.

Gotye, using his real name Wally De Backer, will hit the road to play drums with his old band,The Basics. They released a new single earlier this year, "So Hard for You," and they’ll tour around Australia this September and October. De Backer tells Billboard, "We're doing shows just because we're three friends who haven’t seen much of each other for the last few years and we’re keen to play music together again. It's as simple as that, really. (It's) to enjoy it."
