Jarvis Cocker has indicated that Pulp have nothing plans once they wrap up dates this year.
Speaking as part of the exclusive coverage of this year's Q Awards in our brand new issue, Q318 out now, the frontman indicated that after the band play Sheffield Arena on 8 December, their last scheduled UK gig, and take part in the Coachella festival cruises in the Bahamas (16-19) and Jamaica (19-23), they have nothing else in their diaries for the foreseeable future.
"We haven't got anything planned after the New Year... we'll just be crusing off into the sunset," Jarvis explained. "Seems poetic. Not wishing to make a big deal, but we've played for a while and it's been really good, but you can't keep doing that forever.
"Will you see Pulp again? Who knows. I'm not stoking those particular rumours."
Grab a copy of Q318 out now for the full interview with Pulp, plus plenty more exclusives from this years awards. In the meantime watch our exclusive backstage video interview with Jarvis above.
