At Coachella last weekend, rap collective BROCKHAMPTON performed their penultimate show for the crowd. Besides wearing matching letterman jackets with the phrase “All Good Things Must Come to An End” embroidered on the back, the group did another surprising thing: announced a final album before their indefinite hiatus.
During their set, BROCKHAMPTON performed fan-favorite tracks like “Buzzcut,” “1999 Wildfire,” “Summer,” “Boogie,” and more. After leaving the stage, they played a video clip of Kevin Abstract meeting with his bandmates, discussing the last BROCKHAMPTON LP. The video cut to a graphic that read: “Final Album. 2022.” The group later confirmed the news over social media.
The new album will be the group's eighth and is the follow-up to their 2021 project ROADRUNNER: NEW LIGHT, NEW MACHINE. The album featured contributions from Danny Brown, A$AP Rocky, A$AP Ferg, Charlie Wilson, and Jpegmafia.
In January, BROCKHAMPTON canceled all of their previously-announced 2022 dates except for two February shows at London’s O2 Academy Brixton and both weekends of Coachella 2022. “They invite their fans to come celebrate the end of an era with them at these final performances,” a statement from the band’s representatives read.
BROCKHAMPTON'S last live performance will happen this weekend, during the second weekend of Coachella. The collective previously made their debut at the festival in 2018. During their set, the musicians wore blue face paint. Kevin Abstract later said the performance’s orchestral section was inspired by Kanye West’s work on Late Registration.
BROCKHAMPTON formed after group leader Kevin Abstract posted a note on the forum KanyeToThe asking if anyone wanted to start a band. Initially named Alive Since Forever, the Texas group later rebranded and moved to Los Angeles. After releasing their acclaimed Saturation trilogy, they dropped the record Iridescence, which went No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. They have since released the albums Ginger and ROADRUNNER: NEW LIGHT, NEW MACHINE.
The many members who have been in the collective include vocalists Ameer Vann (who was removed in 2018 due to allegations of sexual misconduct), Joba, Matt Champion, Meryln Wood, Dom McLennon, and Bearface, as well as producers Romil Hemnani, Jabari Manwa, and Kiko Merley.
