“We’re not just playing Coachella. We’re playing all over. We’re not just having some reunion tour,” Murphy wrote, reports dailystar.co.uk.

“We’re releasing a record (sometime this year-still working on it, actually), so this isn’t a victory lap or anything which wouldn’t be of much interest to us. Thank you to everyone who has been absurdly kind to us over the past 14 years. If you have moved on and don’t like us anymore, that’s obviously ok, too,” Murphy added.
