As previously reported in Spinner, the band denied rumours of a permanent split. However, Goodwin has now told the Daily Record that it was time for the band to get off the "album-tour-album-tour treadmill."
He explained, "None of us are ready to face going into the studio for another two years. This is wiping the slate clean -- we have nothing else in the vaults now. That is it. Whatever we do from now on will be a new start."
Having taken four years to record 2009 album 'Kingdom of Rust,' the Mancunian outfit swiftly followed up with a best of compilation, 'The Places Between,' released on April 5 this year. Now the band have embarked on a UK tour that began last night (April 28) in Hull.
Although his main band may wind down after festival appearances this summer, Goodwin aims to keep busy and is hoping to finally work with Elbow's Guy Garvey. It is a project they have discussed for a while, he explained.
"Me and Guy have been talking about it endlessly for years," he said. "There are a couple of tracks that we have passed back and forwards to each other but it's having the time. We keep trying to get our diaries together. Who knows if it will ever get released? I'm just waiting to see what might happen."
