The Internet Clarifies Comment About Their Fifth Album Being Their Last

Clarifying Syd’s recent inteview with NME, The Internet said that the group’s follow-up to 2018’s Hive Mind will not be their last.

Clean break for fans of The Internet – the group’s fifth album will not be their last. While promoting her sophomore album Broken Hearts Club, Syd spoke with NME about her new music and spoke about the group potentially creating their own music label.

“The next Internet album will also be our last,” said the singer, born Sydney Bennett. “I have no idea what’s next. I don’t know. Maybe we’ll create an Internet label. We talked about that – just signing ourselves.”

On Twitter, the group clarified that Bennett’s statement about their next album meant fulfilling their current contract.

The group’s most recent album, Hive Mind, was released in 2018, a year after Syd released her first solo album Fin and three-track EP Always Never Home. Prior to the release of Hive Mind, the remainder of The Internet released their own respective projects, including Matt Martians (The Drum Chord Theory), Steve Lacy (Steve Lacy’s Demo), Patrick Paige II (Letters of Irrelevance) and Christopher Smith as part of C&T (Loud). Since then, Lacy last released his Grammy nominated Apollo XXI and The Lo-Fis, Martians released The Last Party and Going Normal and Paige dropped If I Fail Are We Still Cool?

Earlier in the interview, Bennett ensured that the group is still close-knit. “The Internet is exactly what we want it to be,” she said. “It’s a snapshot of where we are at the time – individually and together. Most of us actually had dinner last night. We do Sunday night wine night, but this is the first time that Matt’s been able to participate because he lives in Georgia.”

Syd last performed at Los Angeles festival Smokin’ Grooves, where she teased cuts from Broken Hearts Club. With features from Lucky Daye, Smino and KehlaniBroken Hearts Club will release on Friday, April 8th.
