Brockhampton have excited their fans by revealing that their final album will arrive “before the end of the year”.
It was only two months ago in May when the band’s de-facto leader, Kevin Abstract, took to Twitter to post a thread informing his followers that Brockhampton were no more. He explained that they all remained close, but the time had come to move on to pastures new.
“We all love each other and we wanna continue making the best music we can,” he wrote. “Everybody just getting a lil older and got a lot to say outside of group projects.”
However, they do have one more album in the tank before moving on from Brockhampton. In a new interview with GQ, the group’s Bearface explained: “We didn’t have that many more albums in us.”
“Everybody’s given their life for the last 10 years,” added the group’s Romil Hemnani. “And at a certain point, people deserve to give their lives to themselves. So it feels like it’s time to let everyone just spread their wings and do the things that they want to do.”
In a review of Brockhampton’s seventh album, Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine, Hip Hop Hero hailed the record as “more spiritual, more emotionally charged experience than all five of Brockhampton’s previous albums combined,” adding, “If that really was the collective’s last album, then it’s a high note the group can end on.”
