The band will headline this year’s British Summer Time festival in London on June 20 and at present have no concrete plans to tour Asia, but the release of the new album, said Coxon, makes touring a possibility again. “We just couldn't have done any more shows without some new material. It was getting tedious, and some of the fans were getting peeved about it.”

I'm glad that the band (or at least Graham) felt that they couldn't tour again without new material. Because that would have been... sad

I had a bet on one of the Oscars last night. When it didn't come through, I consoled myself with the fact that I'm getting a new Blur album with all 4 members, something which hasn't happened since the 90's! :D

Well, considering he was the one who rescued the HK demos, and that it's his "fault" we have a new Blur record, I'd take ANYTHING from him :lol:

"Y'All Doomed" sounds like a Graham title to me.

Hey Tweedo, do you do any lead vocals on this album?

Good listen that was - thanks from me too. Damon seemed very talkative. Interesting to hear that there was a day or two sometime in between the HK sessions and Graham starting work on it proper, where Damon and Gra got together to do a little bit on it. Hadn't heard that before.
