Brockhampton Announces Indefinite Break, Say Coachella 2022 Is Their Last Show

Brockhampton announced today that they are going on an indefinite hiatus. They’ve canceled all of the 2022 world tour dates they announced last year. The band’s representative noted that Brockhampton only has three live show commitments left: the O2 Academy Brixton in London on February 7 and both weekends of Coachella 2022. “They invite their fans to come and celebrate the end of an era with them during this final appearances,” the statement reads.

Brockhampton started after group leader Kevin Abstract posted a note on the KanyeToThe forum asking if anyone wanted to start a band. The group was initially called Alive Since Forever, but was later renamed Brockhampton. The many members who have been in the collective include singers Ameer Vann, Joba, Matt Champion, Meryln Wood, Dom McLennon and Bearface, as well as producers Romil Hemnani, Jabari Manwa and Kiko Merley.

In 2017, after the collective moved to Los Angeles, Brockhampton starred in the Viceland series American Boy Band and released the three-album Saturation series. The Saturation II song “Gummy” was named one of Pitchfork’s “100 Best Songs of 2017”.

Shortly after signing to RCA in 2018, Vann was expelled from the group after facing allegations of sexual misconduct. Brockhampton canceled a tour to “regroup” after a dismal performance at Boston Calling, and a month later they made their public return The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. It was their belated TV debut.

Brockhampton returned later that year with the record iridescence– their first and only album to hit #1 on the Billboard album chart. In 2019, just months after Abstract released the Jack Antonoff-produced solo album Arizona Baby, the band released Ginger. Brockhampton’s latest album Roadrunner: new light, new machine was released in 2021. The album featured contributions from Danny Brown, A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, Charlie Wilson and Jpegmafia.
