Zach Condon really just needed time to write new songs

Beirut

In April, you canceled a bunch of European tour dates and posted that letter on your site. What led you to cancel those shows?

Zach: I was on tour again for maybe the fifth or sixth time that year. I’d been away from home for so long. And it wasn’t homesickness, it was literally just… it’s funny, I wanted to make this record, and I realized there was no way I could actually do it if I was still doing these tours.

So you’re working on a new record?

Yeah, I’m working on it right now as we speak. I went down to Mexico to do that, and I’m going back soon, after this tour–finishing what I’ve started….

The rest of the Beirut interview can be found @ The Stranger. It definitely doesn’t give the impression that they are breaking up. They kick off their sort-of-tour this Sunday in Brooklyn. Tickets are now sold out. Read an older interview with Beirut here
