Back in July, the boyband’s frontman revealed that the follow-up to sixth album ‘Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine’ would be the band’s last, and set to arrive “before the end of the year.”
He then went on to put out a call for new producers to work on the album, saying the band want to “give up and coming producers a chance cause we know how hard it gets out here to get ur work off the ground.”
Now, Abstract has announced a delay to the band’s seventh and final record.
“Our next and final album as Brockhampton has been pushed back and will not be released until next year,” he wrote.
In a separate post, the band's Henock Sileshi (aka 'HK'), has hinted that the reason for the delay is due to the band recruiting new members.
He tweeted: "pushing the album back to see how these new members we’re scouting make it thru tryouts."
In a four-and-a-half-star review of 'Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine', DIY wrote: "An album which finds a band who’ve been through a lot finding their stride and searching for joy from within the bleak, ‘Roadrunner…’ sees Brockhampton silencing any of those who feared they might have lost their spark. It’s a record that - if it is truly one of their last - sees the lads going out with a bang."
Brockhampton are set to tour the album in the UK across January and February next year. The dates were delayed from 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions.
