In an interview with Gigwise, Blur's Dave Rowntree, talked about more shows and what the future may hold for the band.
Rowntree said: "From the first day of rehearsals it was obvious that the chemistry was still there. I don’t know why I doubted it, because the chemistry comes from the four of us – it’s nothing else."
and added on the new stuff "One of the first things we did when we got back together again was record some new material, we didn’t have to wait until The Magic Whip to find out – it was clear from the first five minutes in the studio. We recorded ‘Under The Westway’, ‘The Puritan’ or that Record Store Day one and everything slotted back into place like the old days – like we’d
been on our summer holidays then got back together again."
Finally on what the future may hold for the band he said: "We tend to do whatever seems most interesting at the time, The Magic Whip was interesting because we had a week off and we thought it would be fun to see how much new material we could do in a week. We're not really in a position now where we make plans for an album in 2017 and a tour in 2018. It doesn't work that way any more.
If someone has an interesting idea and we're available then we'll do it."
