LCD Soundsystem is taking a break from their album touring cycle
LCD Soundsystem wants to take a break from the “cycle” of album tours.
“Daft Punk Is Playing at My House” frontman James Murphy has shared a lengthy update with fans to explain their upcoming 20th anniversary mini-residencies, which include short venue tours in Philadelphia and in Boston after last year’s 7-date race in New York.
Speaking to Facebook, Murphy said: “You invest so much time and energy and money into ‘preparing’ [for a tour] that you end up shooting for hours just to make it worth it… then you still need a big break. then you hesitate to start all over again. it is a cycle. (sic)”
He admitted the band may focus on releasing singles “for a while” rather than full albums, as they wish to take a less “overwhelming” approach.
He added: “We really wanted to stop living like that, so we talked about playing a few gigs in New York, since most of us live here, and not overdoing it.
“Like, just playing because we like it, and because we like each other. Just being a New York band for a while. And maybe we’ll do something like that every year.
“Just stay fit, if that makes sense. And just make records along the way. Maybe just singles for a while, so there’s no ‘album panic’ etc. ( sic)”
Murphy made a point of stressing that he loved the residency in New York and that the group “looks forward to the rest of the shows” scheduled for 2022.
He continued, “It was great playing those shows, and we’re looking forward to the rest of the shows we’ll be playing this year.
“It’s not overwhelming, so I can work on new music and we can all be human beings.
“Maybe we will play in other places next year, moving to cities where we like to play, where we are wanted, etc. (sic)”
