In a long post on the band’s website, frontman James Murphy says the band fully re-formed beyond their Coachella appearance – and defended the decision
First came the surprise single, released on Christmas Eve: a downtempo ballad titled Christmas Will Break Your Heart. Then came the rumours that the band was set for a surprise comeback at California’s Coachella festival, followed by confirmation that LCD Soundsystem – James Murphy’s seminal electronic outfit that have not played live since a farewell show at Madison Square Garden in 2011– will indeed re-form for the event, which will be held over two weekends in April.
