LCD Soundsystem

LCD Soundsystem is an American rock band from New York City, formed in 2002. It is fronted by singer-songwriter and producer James Murphy, co-founder of record label DFA Records. The band began by recording and releasing multiple singles from 2002 to 2004 leading up to their eponymous debut studio album, which was released in 2005 and garnered critical acclaim as well as a Grammy nomination for Best Electronic/Dance Album. Their single "Daft Punk Is Playing at My House" also received a Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording. In the following year, LCD Soundsystem recorded and released the composition "45:33", a forty-six minute-long composition that was made as a "workout track" especially for Nike as part of their Nike+ Original Run series. In 2007, the band released their second studio album, Sound of Silver, to critical acclaim and another Grammy nomination for Best Electronic/Dance Album. Three years later, LCD Soundsystem released their third studio album, This Is Happening, which became their first top-ten album in their home country of the United States.

On February 5, 2011, a statement was posted on the band's website that announced its disbandment following a farewell concert, which took place on April 2, 2011, at Madison Square Garden. The farewell concert is chronicled in the documentary film Shut Up and Play the Hits and was also made available as a live album, titled The Long Goodbye, in April 2014. In December 2015, LCD Soundsystem released the single "Christmas Will Break Your Heart", making it their first single since "Throw" in 2010. LCD Soundsystem will be releasing a new studio album in 2016 and have indicated an expanded tour, including a headline appearance at the 2016 Coachella Festival.
