LCD Soundsystem Cancel Asian & Australian Tour To Begin New Album

A good news / bad news situation

LCD Soundsystem are currently working on their first album since 2010’s This is Happening, but the exciting announcement comes with some bittersweet news. It seems as though the recording process has been made top priority over their upcoming Asian tour.

The recently reunited New York-based band were scheduled to begin the said tour in November at the Clockenflap Festival in Hong Kong, and then progress to Australia.

In a Facebook post, Clockenflap organizers announced LCD had called off their show:

The Asian tour had not yet been announced, so fans aren’t exactly losing out on money, just missing an awesome show. The title of the band’s forthcoming album, which was first announced in January, is also yet to be released.

The new album is expected out sometime 2017.
