James Murphy Comments on LCD Soundsystem’s Future
James Murphy has issued a public statement about LCD Soundsystem’s future. Following constant probing about possible reunion plans and band member relationships, Murphy posted the following lowercase-only message on Facebook:
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.
LCD Soundsystem parted ways in 2011. Murphy is currently working on Arcade Fire’s new studio album and focusing on his DJ career.
