Frontman Gaz Coombes says the band does not have current plans to release new music, but he also revealed they might be playing some never before heard tunes during their shows. When asked about a potential appearance at next year’s Glastonbury Festival, Coombes did not deny the possibility of such a thing happening which leaves room for speculations. Supergrass fans can certainly look forward to exciting times.
Supergrass started out as a three-piece group in 1993, releasing their debut record I Should Coco two years later. This album’s fourth single Alright has been the trademark song for Supergrass and established the band’s reputation in the 90’s Britpop wave. In the following years, Supergrass released five more albums and were joined by frontman Gaz Coombe’s brother Rob. While working on their seventh studio album Release the Drones, in April 2010, the band announced they were splitting up due to musical and creative differences. The unfinished record was never released. In September 2019, the band reformed and performed at Pilton Party, readying themselves for more action.
