After breaking up five years ago, LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy has had a change of heart. LCD Soundsystem is reuniting not just to play this years Coachella music festival, but are also planning on releasing a new album and will eventually mount a new tour.
Murphy’s reason for reuniting the band is simple; he’s written a bunch of new material over the last couple of years and instead of going it alone, he decided to get former members Nancy Whang and Pat Mahoney in on the action. Now we’ve all seen this before with a ton of other bands who breakup only to reunite, mostly to cash in on nostalgia. But whatever the reason is, we’re excited that one of the best band’s of the last ten years is back and will be bringing us good (fingers crossed), new material.
No word yet on when the new album will be released but you can read the full announcement on the LCD Soundsystem website.
