Johnny Marr: ‘The Smiths are not reforming’

Guitarist says he's committed to The Cribs

Johnny Marr has declared there is no foundations to recent stories that his old band The Smiths are to reform.

Marr issued a statement to NME.COM saying that rumours floating around that the band were reuniting were “untrue”.

He declared: “The stories circulating about a Smiths reunion are, as usual, untrue.”

Marr added he was committed to his current band The Cribs.

“I’m currently very excited about writing and recording with The Cribs for a new album to be released next summer and we’re playing shows in February, so going back in time isn’t in my plans,” he said.
