Last night, LCD Soundsystem released “Christmas Will Break Your Heart,” a beautiful, self-described “depressing” ode to being lonely and alone on the holidays. It was their first new song in five years, and a nice consolation to those reunion rumors that were purportedly false. But hey, wait a sec: Now Consequence of Sound reports that the band will kick off a 2016 reunion tour in April, after performing at Coachella. “LCD Soundsystem has yet to formally announce their reunion,” the site says. “However, Consequence of Sound has learned that the band’s festival tour will kick off at Coachella in April. Billboard also says “multiple sources” have confirmed that the reunion is “still on.” The band broke up in 2011, after their majestic Long Goodbye performance at Madison Square Garden, captured beautifully in the film Shut Up and Play the Hits. We’ve heard this tune before, so don’t jump to any conclusions yet. Stay tuned for updates, and keep your fingers crossed. LCD Soundsystem, we love you, but if these rumors are false, it will really bring us down.
