    After a break for almost 13 years, the band has announced a reunion in 2008. During the re-union concert, they have announced the release of their third album "City Blues", a popular number from one of their earlier albums that remains a great track of Middle-Eastern rock music.

    The next mission of 13AD is to bring forth a new album which would be bilingual. The weight of this is doubled as it is to be recorded at the studio of the music maestro AR Rahman in Chennai and the Hindi lyrics being penned by none other than Mehbood. India and the Middle East have witnessed their performance.
