There’s been some pretty exciting news for LCD Soundsystem fans in the last week. Not only did they release a full stream of their new album, This Is Happening, on their website, but the group confirmed their attendance at the Splendour in the Grass festival this July/August.
Now some more disheartening news. According to Triple J, James Murphy called in to national youth broadcaster and told the Doctor that any LCD Soundsystem fans who want to see the band had better get to one of the shows on this upcoming tour:
“This is our last tour. So this is our crazy, no punches pulled… we have to do the weirdest stuff. It’s like the most ramshackle basement show ever. It’s the end of this type of thing for us.”
Whether that means the group will split after this tour, or simply abandon the idea of doing live shows remains to be seen. We’ll keep you posted.
