It has now been over a year since LCD Soundsystem surprise-announced their return to music after a self-imposed retirement. In that year, they have traveled around the world making festival appearances and churning out all of their greatest hits, but not a note of their promised new album has been released. But at least they are keeping themselves busy. The band has just announced they will be playing a five-night residency to open the new venue Brooklyn Steel.
James Murphy’s reunited dance-rock crew will be giving the space its grand opening on April 6, with additional shows to follow on the 7, 8, 10 and 11. The new concert venue will be located in the Brooklyn neighborhood of East Williamsburg and will be a part of the Bowery Presents family, putting it in the same lineage as such venues as Terminal 5 and Music Hall of Williamsburg. It’s possible that these shows will be the ones where the band decides to premiere new music, so stay tuned!
