James Murphy to fans: 'LCD Soundsystem are not coming back'

James Murphy has reaffirmed the fact that LCD Soundsystem have split and will not be reforming any time soon.

Despite the fact that the group only ceased releasing albums and playing live in April 2011, fans have remained hopeful that the possibility of more music or live shows will happen in the future. However, posting an update on Facebook, Murphy has outlined what each member of the group is up to at the moment and expressed his happiness at being out of the cycle of band life.

The update reads: "Pat is in the studio working on his new thing, Al is on tour with Hot Chip and making new things as New Build, Tyler is off in Berlin being Tyler and DJing and making music and mixes, Nancy is DJing in Europe and working on new music with the Juan and others, Gavin and Matt are touring and making things in The Crystal Ark, DSS just did that crazy Beck 'Sound And Vision' 360 thing, and I'm home moving furniture and cleaning up today after a stint of doing some DJing and producing. All in all it's pretty good."

"I fully respect and appreciate that people miss us as a band – it's a huge compliment but I also realise that we the band are just friends and we make things together and eat food together, and still all go out and do things, just not all together as LCD. Some come see us do our various things and say hi! It's been so nice to get to know a bunch of really good people in a totally different context to the 'big-ish band getting bigger' way we were a little stuck in. Thanks to everyone for being so amazingly supportive and nice to us. I guess that's my candy-assed thought for the day… now back to unpacking kitchen stuff."

Murphy did not, however, make any reference to the fact he is suing DFA Records co-founder Tim Goldsworthy. Murphy is said to have filed a $93,899 (£62,322) lawsuit against Goldsworthy for alleged "breach of contract" and "unjust enrichment".
