Two years ago this month, LCD Soundsystem played their final show at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. Since then, James Murphy has celebrated the band in both book and film, and even openly discussed the possibility of getting the gang back together to record a new song. However, as of April 23rd, 2013, a reunion of LCD Soundsystem is nowhere closer to happening.
Here’s what Murphy wrote on the band’s Facebook page last night:
pat is in the studio working on his new thing, al is on tour with hot chip and making new things as new build, tyler is off in berlin being tyler and dj’ing and making music and mixes, nancy is dj’ing in europe and working on new music with the juan and others, gavin and matt are touring and making things in the crystal ark, DSS just did that crazy beck sound and vision 360 thing, and i’m home moving furniture and cleaning up today after a stint of doing some dj’ing and producing. all in all it’s pretty good.
i fully respect and appreciate that people miss us as a band–it’s a huge compliment–but i also realize that we the band are just friends and we make things together and eat food together, and STILL ALL GO OUT AND DO THINGS, just not all together as LCD.
some come see us do our various things and say hi! it’s been so nice to get to know a bunch of really good people in a totally different context to the “big-ish band getting bigger” way we were a little stuck in.
thanks to everyone for being so amazingly supportive and nice to us.
i guess that’s my candy-assed thought for the day… now back to unpacking kitchen stuff.
So, check back in two more years?
