LCD Soundsystem announces new Brooklyn Steel residency, rails against reissues
In a huge announcement, LCD Soundsystem will start a seven-night residency at Brooklyn Steel set to kick off on Friday, June 16 and run until the 24. This new set of shows is perfectly as the band has just finished recording their highly-anticipated new album.
The band has also recently issued a scathing statement detailing that they had no idea about the upcoming vinyl reissues of their four major albums.
A statement issued by the band’s publicist, Nasty Little Man states, “LCD Soundsystem certainly aren’t announcing shit, as they had no idea that these were even coming out.”
“Just buy the records from DFA, like you have been able to for years.”
Co-founded by LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy in 2001, DFA is the label that has released every one of the band’s albums to date.
Allegedly, Rhino Records would be reissuing LCD Soundsystem’s self-titled debut, third LP This Is Happening and a pair of live releases, 45:33 and London Sessions.
Rhino is owned by Warner Music Group. LCD’s statement concludes that, “The Rhino press release also describes LCD Soundsystem as ‘one of the freshest sounds on the London underground scene in the early 2000s,’ showing how seriously anyone should take it.”
Rhino Records have yet to respond to LCD’s comments.
