The group "25/17" announced the last big electric concert, after which the group will take a break for an indefinite time. The performance will take place at the Green Theater of the Park. Gorky on June 11, 2019, the program includes "minimum lyrics, maximum action films."
- We have always worked without producers and always decided for ourselves: what, when and how we should do it. So this time, too, we decided that the concert at the Green Theater would be the last for some long period and informed our management and the organizers of this concert, - explained the frontman of 25/17 Andrei Bledny at a press conference. - Fueled by the thirst for profit, they decided to make an informational out of this, tell everyone about it in order to sell more tickets to the concert. It is good that we did not say this before the launch of the advertisement, otherwise the whole of Moscow would have been covered with posters with the inscription "The last concert of the 25/17 group." But this is actually our last big electric concert. Somewhere else we will play acoustics, somewhere, perhaps, we will play our performances and take part in festivals.
According to the musicians, they are not yet making any plans for a loud return to the stage. If the group does not manage to find new facets in their work, then they will not return to the stage, at least in their usual composition.
- The last time we did this, we recorded the album "Russian Plantain". How long the break will last this time - we do not know. How long we will not perform - we do not know. If we will return to active concert activity, it will only be with the new album. We could record a new record in a month, we have ideas, sketches, demos, but we want to do something new, which we have never done, to find a new sound concept. We don't want to turn into musicians who do the same thing, it gets worse and worse every time. If we are not happy with the result, it means that we will not release anything and it would be better to end our story at its peak,”Bledny said.
In the meantime, "25/17" is preparing to release the continuation of the series of compilations "Total Recall".
- Last year we celebrated our 16th anniversary and now we are finishing work on a series of collections called “Total Recall”. Two parts have already been released, two more will be released this summer, - the artist promised.
