The group then released This Is Happening in 2010 before putting the project on hiatus, coming back in 2017 to release American Dream.
The band are currently playing across New York for there annual residency in the area. The band’s tour which they called the ‘Tri Boro Tour’, includes 4 shows at the Brooklyn Steel, 5 shows in Manhattan’s Terminal 5 and 3 shows in Queen’ Knockdown Centre. The band will also be playing follow-up shows in San Francisco on December 30th and 31st.
When asked about the band’s future plans earlier this year, frontman James Murphy said: “We’re trying to just be a band, play music and play in cities that we like that want to see us. We’re gonna be a normal band in 2023. You know, make some music, put some music out, and hopefully play some more shows. Nothing crazy. I’m not gonna hole up in a stadium.”
LCD Soundsystem will be featuring on the next IDLES album, TANGK, where members James Murphy and Nancy Whang contribute backing vocals for the track, ‘Dancer’. The Bristol-based band were joined by LCD Soundsystem for the last song of their set at a Re:SET show in Chicago on June 25. IDLES Frontman Joe Talbot said: “OK, I want to make this very clear. We are forever humbled and very grateful to share a stage with LCD Soundsystem, I’m also humbled by the fact I get to sing an anti-fascist song to people with open minds and hearts. Thank you for welcoming us into your beautiful country. We’ll see you very soon.”
