Rumors Of Legendary Electronic Live Band Reunion Are Shot Down
The majority of today's dance music fans may not even know this band's name, but the internet went wild when news of a reunion began to spread after Consequence of Sound and Billboard reported reliable sources confirmed a reunion in 2016.
Led by singer, songwriter and producer James Murphy, the eight-piece alternative dance group LCD Soundsystem was active for 10 years. They released three critically acclaimed albums - eponymous debut (2005), Sound of Silver (2007) and This Is Happening (2010) - that allowed them to develop a cult following.
Their "underground" success culminated in their 2011 sold-out farewell show at Madison Square Garden. The historical performance that ended an era was upheld by the live album The Long Goodbye: LCD Soundsystem Live at Madison Square Garden and the documentary film Shut Up And Play The Hits.
Manager of LCD Soundsystem's label DFA Records Kris Petersen took to Twitter to squash the rumors. Another rep form the label told Rolling Stone the following:
"This office has no knowledge at all of any reunion."
Finally, Murphy's management company also told Rolling Stone, "We have no knowledge of any reunion."
