Announcement: several LCD Soundsystem releases will be reissued on vinyl.
The truth: not that ↑.
After it recently being made public that LCD Soundsystem would re-release several past albums, a statement was issued via the band's publicist claiming that the announcement is basically just a load of bullshit. Rhino Records, who first made the announcement, is part of Warner Music Group and thinks of themselves as setting "the standard for excellence in the reissue business it pioneered in both the physical and digital worlds."
So, what did the band's press release have to say about this 'standard of excellence?' Sentiments along the lines of: the band is not "releasing shit," and furthermore concluding that you should “just buy the records from DFA, like you have been able to for years.”
Brooklyn Steel Residency
Back by popular demand, and through some controversy, LCD Soundsystem will return to Brooklyn Steel for a set of shows beginning June 16th. In a recent Facebook post James Murphy shed some light on how many fans felt bots and scalpers had scooped up all of the original tickets back in April. Hopefully those bots and scammers will be at it again so that the band will have to play more shows.
Last time around LCD Soundsystem played their two new singles "call the police" and "american dream" (which you can listen below, or hear by hitting the play button on Murphy's face above). All around it's been a topsy-turvy year for the band as they cancelled part of their tour to record the forthcoming album. Murphy recently announced at Sasquatch! Music Festival that their new album is finally complete.
TL;DR: LCD Soundsystem are returning to Brooklyn Steel for a week, beginning June 16. Reason being, not everyone got to see them during their residency in April.
