Former Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes has said that he currently has 'no interest' in a Supergrass reunion, but added: "Who knows what I'll say in five years?"

The musician has also spoken out about the inspiration for his debut solo album, 'Here Come The Bombs', which is set for release on May 21. The album was co-produced by Sam Williams, who previously worked with Coombes when producing Supergrass's 1995 debut album, 'I Should Coco'.

Speaking to The Guardian, Coombes explained that album opener 'Bombs', was inspired by television reports about Libya. He said: "You see aerial footage of bombs dropping and it doesn't seem real. But down there, it's fucking mental."

He added: "I got this feeling that there are a lot of people around the world who aren't listened to and they're being wronged. It had an effect on me – a very strange emotion – enough to make me start writing stuff down."

Coombes plays every instrument on the new album, but explained that it wasn't so he could say: "'Hey look at me, I can play this stuff!'", but rather an expression of spontaneity.

Gaz Coombes will play two UK shows later this month. Coombes will appear at Manchester's Ruby Lounge on May 17 and London's Bush Hall on May 25. He will also play a number of UK festivals this summer, including The Apple Cart Festival.
