Brockhampton‘s seventh and potentially last album will be out “before the end of the year” according to bandleader Kevin Abstract.
Earlier this year, prior to the band releasing new album ‘Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine’, the frontman said the collective will release two albums in 2021, which are also set to be their last.
Doubling down on the promise in a new tweet, Abstract simply wrote: “NEW BROCKHAMPTON ALBUM OUT BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR.”

NME gave Brockhampton’s ‘Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine’ a three-star review upon its release, describing it as “a record defined by the collective’s emotional heaviness”.
“While ‘Roadrunner’ doesn’t provide party-starting hits tailor-made for when the clubs re-open, Brockhampton remains a vehicle for its sprawling cast of members to interrogate and overcome their darkest thoughts as one, and it’s a welcome reminder that you can tackle anything if you do it together.”
The new dates, which are set around a full European run of dates, take place in early 2022, beginning with a Glasgow show on January 27 and ending with two gigs at London’s Brixton Academy the following month.
Meanwhile, Abstract returned with a new solo single featuring Slowthai called ‘Slugger’ this week.
