A QUANTO PARE NON CE L’HO FATTO CON I WHITE STRIPES, MA CON LCD SOUNDSYSTEM APPENA IN TEMPO…

LCD Soundsystem have announced that they will play their final show on Saturday, April 2, at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. LCD frontman James Murphy had promised before the release of their 2010 album This Is Happening that it would serve as their victory lap, and indeed it has.

However, they’ll go out with a bang. The group has released an official statement at lcdsoundsystem.com, revealing plans to perform one final, marathon hometown set: “For just one more night, we will be playing with friends and family for nearly 3 hours– playing stuff we’ve never played before.” Famed underground dance group Liquid Liquid will open the show. The group has also requested that everyone who attends wear white, black, or black and white. General onsale tickets will begin Friday, February 11.

Murphy spoke with us about the LCD’s pending breakup last July before their epic closing set at the Pitchfork Music Festival, saying, “It’s all just gotten bigger than I planned or wanted. Not that I’m against it but I don’t want to get bigger. What’s the goal now– get fucking huge? I don’t want to be a famous person. It’s fucking great where we are. I get on an airplane and nobody has any idea who I am. I just want to do other stuff. And since we know we’re not gonna do another record I feel freer to do the biggest shit I possibly can. Like, ‘Fuck it, we should play Madison Square Garden.'”

He continued: “If I thought there was another record, I’d be very uncomfortable and anxious about it and what it was going to do to my life. Putting an end to it frees me up to have fun; it’s like knowing your mortality. As a kid that always wanted to make music, I couldn’t have dreamed of a better place to be than where I’m at right now. I didn’t even know this place existed– to play with your friends and be really satisfied and happy. It’s not so bad.”

Murphy has also mentioned how dedicating himself to the band full-time has prevented him from taking advantage of other opportunities. In December, he told Spin, “There are other things I haven’t been able to do because of it. Twice, I couldn’t make an Arcade Fire record. I couldn’t make a Spoon record. I couldn’t work with John Cale or Devo. The plan was for this band to be part of my life, then it started to be the whole of my life.” Check back here at Pitchfork for more updates on what’s sure to be an extraordinary end to an extraordinary band.
