Recent reports suggested that the hip-hop outfit fronted by in-demand producer Pharrell Williams had tossed in the towel, ignoring their own claim that no one ever really dies.
However, the band's manager Loic Villepontoux has issued a statement from the band clearing things up somewhat:
"N.E.R.D is still very much a band. We are playing a show together in Japan in two weeks. And we continue to appreciate the support from all our fans."
So now you know.
