Brockhampton surprise Coachella with news of final album

The collective announced their final album as they concluded their penultimate show at the first weekend of Coachella

Texas rap collective Brockhampton announced their final album during their performance at Coachella on Saturday (16 April). The news came as a surprise to many, just months after the group announced their indefinite hiatus, cancelling all of their international tour except for two London dates and both Coachella weekends.

Concluding their performance on the Sahara Stage, Brockhampton played a video on a large screen that read the words “Final Album. 2022.”. See the video below.


Last year the group’s ringleader Kevin Abstract had tweeted that the follow-up to 2021’s Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine had been delayed until 2022, however most assumed this would no longer be the case after they announced their hiatus back in January.

Though the news naturally pleased the Coachella crowds and caused a stir online as fans revelled in the excitement, the final album — the release date is still to be confirmed — is still understood to be a parting gift and that the planned hiatus is still to go ahead. The collective wore matching letterman jackets saying “All Good Things Must Come To An End”.
