One Of The Biggest Live Electronic Band Is Uniting For Coachella

Posted at January 7th, 2016 | by Sarthak Vij | in Entertainment, Music Festivals, News, World Festivals

This is yet another massive news for the Music Industry. The iconic Electronic/Rock Band LCD Soundsystem are confirmed to headline Coachella this year. They are alos planning an album release later this year. James Murphy – the mastermind musician and producer behind the group – took to the band’s website to write a lengthy letter discussing the reunion and announcing a new record and tour in 2016:

 

“…i asked pat and nancy to come over to my apartment for coffee and told them: ‘i’m going to record some music. should i make up a band name, or make a “james murphy” record, or should it be lcd?’ we all thought a good amount about it. we have had lives for the past 5 years, which has been nice, and those guys have made amazing music with museum of love, the juan maclean, and all sorts of other things. i’d managed to do a bunch of fun, dumb stuff which mostly annoyed people who were into the band because, well, subway turnstiles and a coffee aren’t lcd, basically… at any rate, they both said ‘let’s make an lcd record.’

… we’re not just playing coachella. we’re playing all over. we’re not just having some reunion tour. we’re releasing a record (sometime this year—still working on it, actually), so this isn’t a victory lap or anything, which wouldn’t be of much interest to us. this is just the bus full of substitute teachers back from their coffee break with new music and the same weird gear—or as much of it as we still have (it’s very interesting to re-buy the same gear, and in some cases buy gear back from people you sold it to), and rambling around trying to be louder than everyone else.”
