Blur's Dave Rowntree has told BBC 6Music that his band will never tour again.
The still-popular Britpoppers' drummer told the digital station:
"The days of Blur doing a tour will not happen. Most of the band have kids now, and when you're a touring band you have to make a choice, so there will never be a return to that. But we have been talking about doing an album next year - we have even set a date for it."
Rowntree echoed bassist Alex James' recent comments that the band would like former guitarist Graham Coxon to be involved with any new album: "We'd all like to do it with Graham, we may have to beg him a bit though."
